• Almost ¼ of the population is nomadic.
• Nomads move seasonally searching for optimal pasture and water for their livestock. Moves typically occur at least four times a year covering an average distance of around 50-200 km.
• Mongolia has an immense richness in livestock; the five species of animals are sheep, goats, camels, horses, and cattle. Nomad lifestyle is closely connected to nature and the animals which produce milk, meat, hides, wool and quality cashmere as well as transportation.
• Horses are one of the most important animals for nomads. They are semi-wild naturally, so they have to be broken by skilled horsemen.

WHEN IS THE BEST TIME TO COME TO MONGOLIA?
Known as The land of blue sky, Mongolia’s sunny country that enjoys over 200 sunny days each year. Although we have continental climate, summer is a very pleasant time to travel therefore Mongolia's tourist season is from May to October. May to October is the best season, with the peak season in July for the Naadam Festival. July and August are also the wettest months of the year, but be assured, our climate is such that you will still have many sunny days at this time. The best time to visit the Gobi is June or September.
Traditional Mongolian staple is simple yet filling with hearty soups, cooked or broiled meat (beef, mutton), pasta and plenty of dairy products. Traditionally Mongolians are accustomed to eating non-spicy mild foods largely due to the extreme continental climate that limits the growth of spices.
