On our trip north to Darkhan to see the Amarbayasgalant monastery we saw camels! First time to see them in the wild! This is in the very northern part of the country, and while I don’t know that much about camel herding (yet), I wasn’t expecting to see them on this trip. They were just walking around getting shoo-ed out of a valley by a sheep herder. Notice their furry winter coats that make such nice blankets and socks.
