Today is a very special occasion when we will ride a short distance to reach the camp of the Tsaatan people.

They live in tepee style tents and have very few possessions. Visiting these people, sharing in their hospitality and learning about their unique way of life is a treasured, once-in-a-lifetime memory and a real blessing.
