When you enter the home of a Mongolian (half the population live in Gers) don't bother knocking just shout out "Nokhoi khor" which literally means, "hold the dog". Once in, there is quite a bit of etiquette! Always receive gifts with your right hand supported at the elbow by your left arm. Avoid touching another person's hat. Never, ever, spill milk - it is sacred. Oh, and leave weapons outside.
Welcome to a different world! A school expedition to Mongolia really is an education. Mongolia is massive and one of the highest and most sparsely populated countries in the world. Whether on a camel adventure in the Gobi, trekking in the Altai Mountains or learning to hunt with eagles, you are sure to return with a different view of our culture! Come and explore one of the last vast wildernesses on earth, and find yourself in the process.
