Mongolia, known for vast, rugged expanses and nomadic culture and an equal number of horses to people. Immerse yourself into the nomadic lifestyle and help the local family you’re staying with herd livestock. You get the unique opportunity to milk the cows, make dairy products and really get a glimpse into the life of the nomadic Mongolian culture. If you’re adventurous, you can ride a horse whilst looking after the sheep and goats. Help your local family prepare dinner and enjoy the meal altogether in their home, a ger. You’ll stay overnight in your own traditional ger. In the Gobi desert, play traditional Mongolian games with the locals, like the ‘ankle game’: this name refers to the astragalus of the ankle of a sheep or goat. The bones are collected and used for traditional games and fortune-telling.
