Our main destination was the Tsaatan community located in the East Taiga and their winter habitat in the taiga mountain range. We began our journey by sending our guests, a London couple on a night train from Ulaanbaatar to Erdenet city. Our team drove ahead and reached Erdenet city the night before to meet the guests in the early morning. Despite the hour, we were able to find a local coffee shop that was open and served hot drinks. After breakfast, we visited the Erdenet Mining Museum, a modern facility showcasing one of the top 10 copper mines in the world. From Erdenet, we headed to Murun city where we took a short tour of the local market and purchased horse meat for our journey ahead. The weather was clear and sunny with temperatures ranging from -20C to -30C. The scenery was breathtaking, with snow-covered fields, mountains, valleys, and passes, creating a winter wonderland.
