We’re trippin’ with more trips! Our friends from Beyond Expeditions SG have put together this awesome trip to the most northern province of Mongolia from Dec 1-11, and we’re stoked to be a supporting partner for this expedition.
Explore the vast mystical lands of Khövsgöl Aimag for 10 days, to visit its indigenous nomadic tribes. Home to the slowly disappearing ethnic group of nomadic reindeer herders known as the Tsaatan people, the grounds houses one of the most secluded community in the world (which comprises of less than 40 families). The Tsaatan people have inhabited the remotest subarctic taiga for thousands of years, moving 5-10 times a year. They rely on the reindeer for most, if not all, of their basic needs: milk, which is also used to make cheese; antlers, which they use to make tools; and first and foremost, transport. They do not use the reindeer for meat. This makes them distinctly unique among reindeer-herding communities.
As one of the last remaining indigenous groups of reindeer herders in Mongolia, the Tsaatans and their livelihoods face extinction due to the dwindling numbers of their reindeers.
Join us as we embark on a journey of a lifetime to the north of Mongolia and experience for yourself the cultural and spiritual identities of an ancient community, in imminent danger of phasing out.
Further more, Christmas with Reindeers? How magical is that?
We’ve only got 6 traveller slots left so holler soon if you’re keen to join the expedition!
