Fascinating Photos of Reindeer People Living in Mongolia

A film called The Reindeer People: “In Northern Mongolia, there exists a sacred alliance between people, ancestor spirits and reindeer. This film is an intimate portrait of a family of Dukha reindeer nomads following their migration through the forests of Mongolia. They move with a herd of about a hundred reindeer through a sacred forest inhabited by the spirits of their ancestors, who communicate to the living through songs. The oldest Dukha, is a divine seer, a 96-year old shaman. She is the link between the healing songs of the forest ancestors, her people and their reindeer. She is the centerpiece of an extraordinary adventure that unites people and animals in one of the wildest regions of Mongolia – where people still live and hunt in a forest dominated by supernatural beings. To live in harmony with them, people had to learn to respect nature and animals and to pass down their beliefs, from generation to generation, by invoking the song-lines of their deceased ancestors.”

“Deep in the rolling hilled wine regions of France, you can find a selection of beautifully restored traditional Gypsy Caravans. These are available for hire and are decorated in four different styles reflecting all kinds of Gypsy Heritage. You can be transported into a lifestyle that hasn’t changed for centuries by staying in one of the two traditional caravans. In France, the caravans are referred to as ‘La Roulotte’.”

“…inspired more by boat design than any camper”

The couch and lounge area provides ample space for relaxing, eating dinner or playing games with guests, but also transforms into a pull-out bed at night. The camper is equipped with its own propane cooktop and grill, its own water tank and faucet, and a refrigerator for keeping consumables cold and a ready supply of ice for that cocktail at the road’s end. The fridge, lights, fan and stereo are all powered by the engine while underway and by an adjustable rooftop solar panel while camping.
