Mongolia’s Mystical Tsaatan Reindeer Herders

$1250 per person

Deep in the heart of the Mongolian Taiga lives one of the most unique communities in the world, the Tsaatan reindeer herders. For centuries the Tsaatan have survived tucked into the forests of Northern Mongolia, isolated from society and surrounded by their faithful herd of reindeer.

To visit the Tsaatan is to witness something magical. A relationship between humans and animals that has stood the test of time, and a culture that has a deep respect for the earth and all of its gifts.

But the journey here is an arduous one. It requires days of travel on bumpy dirt roads, across rivers, over mountains, and, when the road ends, a horse awaits, where your final hours will be spent in the saddle traversing knee-deep mud and blazing your way through the forest.

Along the way you’ll see some of the most pristine landscapes in the world, gaze upon views that will make your jaw drop, see stunning wild horses, yaks, and golden eagles, meet incredible local people who will welcome you into their home with open arms, and experience for yourself the joys and hardships of nomadic life in Mongolia.
