Mongolia Local Customs: 65 reviews and 93 photos
One custom that you might want to know is that Mongolian nomads don't cut their boy's hair until they are about 4 years old. This takes place in a ceremony and is a big family affair and out comes the food, drink and music. So before you offer up girly gifts to a child that you presume to be a girl, you might want to ask as sometimes you can't tell.
This little boy was a member of the camel herding family with whom we stayed. He was a funny little guy and I played with him quite a bit. He was doing what I assume was a tiger or lion impression for me, which involved being on all fours, scratching at the ground and growling. Quite a cute little guy.
