Meet Shaman and Tsaatan Reindeer Herders

Out on Mongolian mountain slopes you spot hundreds of reindeer. They appear then disappear into the trees and you follow. You are visiting a Tsaatan family of reindeer herders.

Step inside their teepee to meet the family. Then head out into the forest and track the reindeer.

The Tsaatan also brought shamanist customs to Northern Mongolia and you will meet a local shaman. His clothes are weighed down by dozens of trinkets and metal objects. The shaman comes from a different culture. And like the herders, this is a very unique world experience.
