Mongolia – The Gobi Desert – Part 9
We left Kharkhorin about mid-day and our goal for the night was to camp at the off-the-beaten-path lake of Ogii Nuur. We pulled off the main road to make lunch and Hishka decided to stop at a Ger on the way back to the main road. We were warmly welcomed by the family, even though our guides had never met them before. This was a fairly prosperous family as they had many horses and cattle and even a tractor. Inside their Ger we saw a flat screen TV next to the altar, solar-powered, of course. We had tea and homemade snacks with the family.
