After the heat of summer, the night temperatures slowly start to decline mid of September. This results in a colourful spectacle of yellowing leaves, especially by the rivers lined with trees. The weather is still warm and sunny in the day. The evening calls for a warm fire to fall asleep with, while casting a glow of light on the beams of the yurt.
Mid of October, the animals too old or weak to stand the harsh winter are slaughtered. The permanent frost from now till spring, preserves the meat, which is an important source of proteins.
