Additional information
  • Disclaimer The majority of the project will be
    spent in a beautiful but remote area around Lake
    Hovsgol. It will take two days to get there, we
    will live in a ger (traditional tent), sleep in a
    sleeping bag, travel by jeep on permafrost and
    eat mostly whatever it is they eat in Mongolia.
    This is a unique opportunity to do good while
    being immersed in a fascinating and exotic
    culture nothing else comes even remotely close!
