Despite their nomadic nature, the locals will expertly navigate your destination with your small group. Local children are very friendly and will happily play with you. And, nomadic families will welcome all of you into their homes and share great stories. The locals of Mongolia are very warm and welcoming, and they will happily help your small group embark on an adventure that you can only experience once in a lifetime.
