In this segment of the From the Heart of Asia Documentary, Linh’s home host in Mongolia, Byambajav, explains how a Mongolian nomadic house, the Ger, is constructed.
Most Mongolians today still maintain either a lifestyle or a connection to their nomadic past.
The one object which symbolizes this best is called a ger.
This dwelling personifies, in many ways, the spirit of nomadic life.
It is a white felt tent that is cylindrical at the base and above there is a domed roof.
It is simple in design, strong and mobile, yet it can withstand rigorous conditions, such as heavy winds, rain, snow, and varying extremes of hot and cold during the days and nights of summer.
Gers can be found in environments ranging from cities, sandy deserts, steppes, rocky plateaus, and near taiga forests.
