For two days each September the steppes of Mongolia are alive with the sound of nomads, in what's become an extraordinary revival of Mongolian nomad culture. The Nomads Day Festival, organized by in-bound Mongolian tour operator, Selena Travel, brings local nomadic groups to the beaturiful Gun - Galuut nature reserve in Bayandelger soum (county). In just fives years, it has grown from a small local tourist event to widly celebrated cultural festival.
