Herders Ger on the way to Tsagaan-Ovoo 

Nomads in Mongolia keep mainly cattle, horses, sheep, goats, and camels. Horses are their transportation. It was thought that horses are more fundamental than cars or even walking. In fact, there is no word for "walking" in their language (Shonandai Culture Centre, n.d.). Camels are used for their transfer but trucks are more often used now. Goats, sheeps and camels provide them with food and clothes. Nomad is one of the way of keeping and it is general pasturage style in Mongolia.
