Kazakh - Mongolia
Kazakh |Ulaankhus, Bayan-Ölgii |Mongolia, 2011
Nomadic Kazakhs live part of the year in ger tents. They are ideally designed for this nomadic way of life and very easy to assemble and transport. The sturdy circular wooden construction is covered with thick woollen and felt cloth and insulated with an extra layer of wool to withstand the intense Mongolian winds. Due to the intimacy of the living conditions, it is very important that everybody knows and accepts their place in the family while in the ger.
