Besides, Mongolia is the home of hearty nomadic people, whose lifestyle has not changed a lot since the days of Genghis Khan and his empire. You might have heard many stories of travelers being dazed by the sincere hospitality of the nomads. However, if you look deeper into their spirit, you will witness how strong, stern nomadic men can be moved to tears by their racehorses rushing to a finish line. Their lifestyle, religion, and philosophy are shaped by the "Mother Nature" to a great degree; and nomadic customs, music, literature, and costumes have been passed through centuries. And in this hectic 21st century only Mongolian nomads welcome strangers with unlocked doors. There will be plenty of occasions you will meet real nomadic people and enjoy their heart-warming hospitality during the journey.
