Horses in Orkhon Valley

Nomadic people all over the world (Greek: νομάδες, nomádes, "those who let pasture herds"), commonly known as itinerants in modern-day contexts, are communities of people who move from one place to another, rather than settling permanently in one location. Mongolia is one of the nomad countries in the world, with approximately a 30% of its population (800.000 people) being nomadic. Mongolian nomadic people move into place to place 2-4 times a year as well as it is depending on livestock's pasture. Traditionally, they raise 5 species of livestock known as the 5 muzzles: horses, cows or yaks, sheep, goats and camels. The most essential and iconic aspect of the Mongolian nomadic lifestyle is undoubtedly the Ger, which is a transportable dwelling. Since these individuals move so frequently, they need shelter that will protect them from Mongolia’s sometimes harsh weather, but at the same time be extremely easy to build and disassemble.
