Naadam in Mongolia – 01

Mongolian Yurt (Ger)

In summer 2008 we visited Mongolia in order to see a total solar eclipse. The eclipse was visible in a region behind the Altai mountains, in the far west of the country – a region rarely visited by tourists. Local people had prepared a Ger-Camp (Mongolian yurts) for the visitors.

This photo is part of a series about a Naadam festival held to celebrate the total solar eclipse. Click here if you wish to see the whole collection:
