"Gers and nomadic life" Top 5 Page for this destination Mongolia Favorite Tip by sachara
Mongolia General: 90 reviews and 116 photos
Favorite thing: The Mongolian people in the countryside live in gers (in Russian yurts), in traditional tents.
The gers can easily be moved to another place. Mongolia is partly still a nomadic society. The Soviets transformed Mongolia from a nomadic society into an industrialized and urbanized country, so many people moved to the city. In Ulaanbaatar you can find large living aeras of hundreds of gers.
After the Soviet Union felt apart in the 1990s, many Mongolians returned to the countryside and the nomadic life depending on domestic animals, as they did allready many centuries.
