Living my best life in a ger which is more commonly referenced to by it’s Russian name (yurt)! Did you know that a group of skilled Mongolians can assemble and dissemble this in 5 minutes. When you’re a nomad, time matters ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ #neverstopexploring #climbmountains #keepitwild #natgeoyourshot #traveladdict #ourplanetdaily #staywild #natgeotravel #childrenoftheworld #nationalgeographic #wes#westernmongolia #wanderlust #yur#yurt #kazakhstan #yurt #yurtliving #nomadiclife #traveltoexplore #natureisrad #westernmongolia #mongolia #eaglehunter #visitmongolia #earthvisuals #ger #passionpassport #nomadlife

In the summer children’s often head to the countryside to experience a slice of nomadic life. I met this girl’s family when they came to visit our camp one night at Khar Us Nuur Lake. After chatting for a few minutes, we found ourselves an invitation to their ger. It’s amazing how they spotted us in, but as the saying goes it seems true that the nomads are always watching the land. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ As it turns out the handicrafts this family was selling were snow leopards made from wool. They explained that they make this because they work with the World Wildlife Fund (WWF) to conserve snow leopards. Now if you didn’t know, Mongolia has half the worlds population of snow leopards (total population of 2,000+). So in return for not poaching or hunting snow leopards WWF compensates the families for lost livestock and teaches them to create handicrafts. This shot was taken as we said our goodbyes to hear back to camp ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ #neverstopexploring #climbmountains #keepitwild #natgeoyourshot #traveladdict #ourplanetdaily #staywild #natgeotravel #childrenoftheworld #nationalgeographic #wes#westernmongolia #wanderlust #yurtlife #worldwildlife #snowleopard #worldwildlifefund #nomadiclife #traveltoexplore #natureisrad #westernmongolia #mongolia #eaglehunter #visitmongolia #earthvisuals #vsco #passionpassport #nomadlife

You’re probably wondering what’s special about this pile of rocks with a horse skull next it. Well in Mongolia these rock piles are known as ovoos. They aren’t used like cairns which are meant to be used to find one’s way when lost. The Mongols as nomads are highly connected to nature and the land. Instead these ovoos are meant to mark places of spiritual importance for Mongols. Often times these markers are used by shamans who come and perform spiritual rituals ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ #neverstopexploring #climbmountains #keepitwild #natgeoyourshot #traveladdict #ourplanetdaily #staywild #natgeotravel #nationalgeographic #wes#westernmongolia #wanderlust #yurtlife #sha#shaman/a> #mon#mongolia🇳 #shaman #nomadiclife #traveltoexplore #natureisrad #westernmongolia #mongolia #eaglehunter #visitmongolia #earthvisuals #vsco #passionpassport #nomadlife
