Nomadic would be the single most fitting but insufficient word to describe the Mongolian culture. While half of the 3 million Mongolians live in the capital of Ulaanbaatar, many still practice a nomadic lifestyle not unlike their ancestors. Please note, that this is a personal and very limited view on this diverse culture, biased by the fact that I only visited the Hangai region. Ulaanbaatar, for example, is a sprawling modern city, with it’s own unique and urban flair, which I almost don’t mention here.
See also the album, Impressions from Mongolia, for some more pictures of the landscape and nature.
