Did you know there are rules for how to move around in a Mongolian ger? Firstly, there is no need to knock on a closed door. Feel free to enter. Second, step inside with your right foot and make sure you don’t step on the threshold. Once you enter, move to the left. Keep your hat on (if wearing one) and don’t enter with anything that could be considered a weapon! Perhaps most importantly, do not pass through the two central pillars. These are symbolically sacred to Mongolians.
