HARD TO IMAGINE TRADITIONAL MONGOLIAN LIFE WITHOUT "BANKHAR" NATIVE MONGOLIAN DOG

STORY OF THE "ARGADAI AND BERKHEDEI" BANKHAR DOG PROJECT

Finding a solution to the issue of herding large groups of animals, and the reintroduction of the native Bankhar guardian dog to his natural habitat. Our contribution to helping nomads bringing a more efficient approach to their lifestyle, together with supporting the culture and tradition dating from centuries.

Our tour destinations cover the Bankhars homeland in Western Mongolia, and parts of the travel costs contribute to the efforts in preserving the nomadic traditional life and the ancient culture of the Mongols. This is one of our goals, together with welcoming people from around the world to enjoy our beautiful country and traditions.
