Moving with the Seasons
Mongolia has one of the world's last nomadic cultures. Nomadic life centers around five animals: horses, cattle, camels, sheep and goats. Herders meet all of their needs with these animals: transportation, food, drink, clothing, heating and even shelter.
Nomadic families move at the beginning of each season, and sometimes even more often, in search of good grazing land. If you travel to Mongolia during these times, you may encounter families moving to their new site.
