Important Notes

Things to know
- Please do not wear tight clothes, sleeveless shirts and shorts. - Women cannot be photographed without permission. - In traditional families, it is not common for girls to make contact with stranger men. It is therefore important to keep a proper distance. - Thirty percent of this tour's revenue goes directly to our host nomad tribes and a further twenty percent is used for educational and development purposes, such as training the nomad families how to operate the tours on their own. During this tour, we also encourage travelers to purchase handicrafts directly from the artists by offering a contribution of up to twenty percent from nomad tours part for each purchase. - It is highly recommended not to do so, especially from nomad women. Like anybody else, they find it intrusive when the visitors snap a picture of them or their children without saying or doing anything. If you want to take a picture, wait for them to warm up to you, and then ask for their permission.

Awesome view of the culture

You get through the real natural life, so kind people, with all the facilities, try to make everything perfect. They eat healthy foods, wearing a casual dress, and warmly welcomed.
