Although peak travel season is during the summer, Mongolia still has something mystical to offer during the winter. We can bring you to a remote area in northern Mongolia, where reindeer herders roam through the southern fringes of the Siberian taiga forest where their reindeer can graze. Families set up their teepees in areas with enough plants and lichens for their reindeer to feed on since their lives revolve around this precious animal that they depend on as a source of sustenance and transportation.
