Only 44 Dukha families remain, appx. 200- 400 people. They ride, breed, milk, and live off reindeer - populations dropped to appx 600 since the '70s (estimated then 2000) Since the democratization of Mongolia, no gov. programs are in place to replenish reindeer herds, direly endangering the Dukha way of life. Much of the Dukha income today comes from tourists who buy their crafts and to ride their domesticated reindeer. The name "tsaatan" means "reindeer herder" as in "tsaa bug" (reindeer).

Lake Hovsgol - northern Mongolia.  125km long and in parts, over 250 m deep.  It is one of the most beautiful places I've ever been, and so clean you can drink the water.
