Extreme winter experience photo tour in northern Mongolia
If I said that I will ride a reindeer for 70km in one way (our destination is located approximately 2 days ride away) most people would ask whether I have gone a mad.
To tell you the truth, for me travelling with photographers who has same desire and interest for Tsaatan photography trip during the cold winter was one of the most memorable trips of my life.
Our main aim was to explore unique Tsaatan way of life who inhabit the northernmost region of Mongolia, see many reindeer at once, to capture the beauty of northern land in our lenses.
When we spent the night in depth of taiga sleeping in a teepee and rode reindeer we admired the local people's ability to withstand severe cold weather, hardiness and their unique way of living in harmony with nature.
For example whilst we were wearing sheepskin coats and felt boots, our 3 tsaatan guides were just wearing light coat, kirza boots and were sleeping in a wooden hut half covered with cloth and open front.
It was truly admirable when they saw footprints of the animals we did not even spot and told us exactly what kind of animal passed here and how many days ago.
If I am presented with another opportunity to travel again like this for sure I will take the chance!Show more
