Urbane Nomads Private Reindeer Tour in Mongolia
Culture guru and trendspotter Urban Daddy recently reported on a unique private tour in Mongolia this summer – Urbane Nomads’ Trek to the Tsaatan Encampment, Mongolia 2010. The reindeer trek in Mongolia takes you into the heart of the Mongolian wilderness, complete with relaxing spa treatments and expert guide offering an insider peek into the vibrant culture and local customs.
The reindeer people (tsaatan), with the accompanying myths of Shambhala (the land of the tsaatans is believed to coincide with the Shambhala of Buddhist texts), their unique lifestyles and shamanic practices and the legendarily challenging trek to find their campsite are factors that makes this trek one of the most photogenic and mythical trips offered by Urbane Nomads.
The lores, the arduous trek, the appeal of the nomadic life, albeit for a few days and ultimately finding ‘Shambhala’ and being amongst the reindeers and reindeer herders has a permanent foothold on our imaginations.
