The Mongols gained fame in the 13th century when under Chinggis Khan they conquered a huge Eurasian empire. After his death the empire was divided into several powerful Mongol states, but these broke apart in the 14th century and the Mongols eventually retired to their original steppe homelands. Undoubtedly, one of the main interests in travelling in Mongolia is the exciting discovery of the Mongolian nomadic lifestyle. On the edge of the 21-st century, Mongolia remains one of the few countries to retain its ancient traditions and culture. The vast expanses of the steppes, the absolute magnitude, beauty and wonder of the Mongolian scenery are intertwined with the Mongolian nomadic lifestyle and renowned hospitality which has little changed through the passing of the time.
The Mongolian culture is shaped by nomadism and the traditional dwelling of the nomadic Mongolian, the ger, is the focal point of many customs and traditions. Foreign guests remark on Mongolian friendliness. The hard conditions of life, far from embittering them, gave rise to the long-standing traditions of friendliness and hospitality. The host is well aware that the wayfarer entering his ger is tired and may still have a long way to go. Of course, he has also found himself in similar situations more than once. And so he does his best to anticipate and satisfy his guest’s wishes.
