With winters that can be as cold as -40C, Mongolians have to be masters at staying warm. And they are. You'll never see a bareheaded Mongolian in the winter. They wear fur-lined hats to with stand cold temperatures and wind chill.

Buzkashi, which literally translates to "goat pulling," is a sport where players mounted on horses attempt to place a goat carcass into a goal. It is the national sport in Afghanistan but originated in Mongolia. This is just one of the many thrilling sporting events you'll witness while traveling with us. | #roundsquareadventurers #neverstopexploring #mytinyatlas #mongolia #adventureculture #beautifuldestinations #nakedplanet #discoverearth #earthfocus #awesome_earthpix #instatravel #travelblogger #explore #exploreeverything #travelphotography #worldcaptures #bikingadventures #cyclinglife #biking #mtb

The arrangement of the wedding reception is like a Mongolian ger (yurt) in a side style way, the door always faces south. The groom stands north west, next to him is a honored sister – in – law, and then his father and mother. Around them are his relatives and friends; the wife stands to the husband’s left, next to her is a honored sister-in-law, and then her father and mother. Around them are her relatives and friends. The eldest of the group tend to sit in the front of the ceremony as a sign of respect.

#Funfact..... Throughout the grasslands of northern Mongolia lay scattered hundreds of stones covered with extraordinary carvings and patterns. Known as deer stones, these upright stone slabs measure 3 to 15 feet tall and occur in small groups or concentrated in larger groupings often in association with stone burial mounds, called khirigsuur. There are over 700 in Mongolia. These monumental features are believed to be erected by Bronze Age nomads, approximately 3000 years ago. We see things on our adventures that you wouldn't see anywhere else....

"Camping under the stars, descending glacial valleys, attending Mongolian fighting, learning the art of falconry or visiting ancient ruins are just some of the experiences that are part of this adventure in which respect for the environment is fundamental." Round Square Adventures was featured in T Spain! Join us on a trip and see why the New York Times style magazine called us "a movie scenario."

A Golden Eagle living with his master. The trainer constantly hums, sings and speaks to his bird to imprint his voice in its memory. He must keep the eagle on his hand with a hood on its head for long durations. The hood keeps the eagle calm and dependent on its master. | #roundsquareadventurers #neverstopexploring #mytinyatlas #mongolia #adventureculture #beautifuldestinations #nakedplanet #discoverearth #earthfocus #awesome_earthpix #instatravel #travelblogger #explore #exploreeverything #travelphotography #worldcaptures #bikingadventures #cyclinglife #biking #mtb

During hunting trips man and eagle can spend days together, further strengthening their relationship and creating a special bond. However, hunters don't keep the eagle with them forever, after years of service, the eagle is released into the wild. | #roundsquareadventurers #neverstopexploring #mytinyatlas #mongolia #adventureculture #beautifuldestinations #nakedplanet #discoverearth #earthfocus #awesome_earthpix #instatravel #travelblogger #explore #exploreeverything #travelphotography #worldcaptures #bikingadventures #cyclinglife #biking #mtb
