HOME TO CENTURIES OF NOMADIC TRADITIONS
Some words about the region: Here, we are at the core of the mighty chains known as the Tarbagatai mountains. They are home to centuries-old nomadic traditions, very well kept and preserved from the modern days, and they form a natural border between the sand landscapes of the Gobi and the Alpine and Siberian type of tundra (with permafrost to the North). Most of the chain itself is under the protection of the Mongolian State, for its biodiversity, but also important because it is considered the birth of one of the most valuable treasures of the country: the main largest water source. By itself nourishing the Baikal lake located in Russia, through a channel of many important rivers running underground, it ends its run into the North Pole. Therefore these mountains of Central Asia, play a highly significant role in maintaining the ecosystem of the world. Understanding this brings another dimension into seeing where we travel, and how important it is to live with Nature.
