Culture in Mongolia
Mongolia is well known for its nomadic traditions. The nomadic lifestyle is still practiced today in rural areas of the country. The nomads follow a seasonal routine of breeding and rearing the five main types of livestock: goat, sheep, yaks, camel and horse, migrating from one place to another following the most favorable pastures and campsites.
The traditional Mongolian dance is the biyelgee, especially for the peoples of western Mongolia. It is performed on the music of Mongolian national musical instruments, such as the morin khuur (horse-headed violin) and the yochin.
