The Tsaatan reindeer herders live in the wild taiga in the far North of Hovsgol Province bordering the Sayan mountains. Related to the Tuvan people of Western Siberia, they ride their big reindeer and kept their ancient traditions alive amidst hard circumstances. You might feel a bit like being in the land of Santa Claus!
