    The evening we spent in that camp, we saw this group of musicians and singers.
    "Morin Khuur" or Horse-headed fiddle was played and we heard "Khoomii" the kind of singing in two or more different tones at once.
    A dancer showed us her graceful traditional dances and an acrobat her amazing stunts.

    Dress Code: No dress codes in that place, they are used to the casual clothings of the tourists.

    When you arrive at the Shanh Monastry in the afternoon, just stay somewhere there over the night, as we did it. Then you will be there in the morning of the next day and watch the religious ceremony the Lamas hold every morning appr. between 9 am and 1 pm.

    Please ask before you start taking pictures. They will tell you how much they want you to donate for the monastry and then you can take the pictures.

    This bowl contains "airag" ... fermented mares milk.

    The little Lama on the right side of the picture seems to be a bit bored, the ceremony lasts sooo long!

    In such beautiful jars juniper is smoking and you use it to clean yourself, your heart and soul before you enter the temple. Place the smoke with your right hand over your head three times in four directions, walk around it clockwise.
