Breakfast, a hot tea bowl with camel’s milk


The tradiitional breakfast in Western Mongolia, camel tea in a deep bowl. The taste one should get used to, but they say it is very healthy.

Mongolia is a territory wedged between two enormous empires - the Russian in the North and Chinese in the South. Since the 17th century, the Russian czars have been pulling Kazakhstan under their wings, in hopes of expanding their empire and getting closer to the Mediterranean Sea's estuary. The Mongolian Kazakhs are the biggest ethnic minority group in Mongolia, with over 120,000 residents, yet surprisingly, they only make up 4% of the entire population. Nowadays, in west Mongolia, around 9,000 Mongolian Kazakh families still preserve the migration life, like their ancestors many generations before. The economy of the nomad families, even though treat men and women with respect and equality, is still based on gender roles.
