Remote Mongolia


 

As it would take too long to ride to this area, a local flight is the best option, taking you to the northern border with Russia. In addition to nomads, this area is home to the last of the Turkic speaking Dukha people who are reindeer herders. At present this area is not visited by many people and provides one of best chances for a visitor to access an area of significant natural and ethnological interest.
