Nomadic Life in Mongolia

Mongolia: Picture of Davaa and Dan.

A ger is essential to nomadic life in Mongolia.

My guest this week is Tsenddavaa Nasanjargal, AKA Davaa. She and her husband own an amazing guesthouse called the Mongol Ujin Tourist Camp in the village of Khatgal, Mongolia. Davaa is passionate about the nomadic lifestyle that is still so prevalent in Mongolia, and she was generous enough to talk about it with me on the show.

You can find more info about the Mongol Ujin Tourist Camp on TripAdvisor, Facebook, and AirBnB.
