Mongolia Pictures

We want to share with you Mongolia pictures of culture and lifestyle. Mongolia is not the place for luxury and 5 star services but it certainly very interesting place to visit. Can you believe that modern Mongolian nomads still wear old fashioned traditional clothing in their everyday life.

You will see that motorcycles have replaced horses and camels for nomadic people. They can carry a family of five which is considered an average size. If the vehicles brake which happens, most of them are master mechanics, they will fix it on the spot or someone will come and help including women.
