Treasures of Tuva Tour – July 4th-18th, 2016; $2918.75 per person
The Treasures of Tuva tour will primarily take place at Sai-Xonash yurt camp, which serves as a cultural tourism destination and functioning Tuvan herding operation. It is located in an area of Tuva named Ak, which is known for the extreme natural beauty of its surrounding mountains, boreal forests, and fresh water springs. While in residence at Sai-Xonash, you will lodge in Tuvan style yurts and will meet many of the herdsmen who call Sai Xonash home. In addition, several of Tuva’s most revered throat-singers will provide you throat singing lessons while introducing you to the relationship between throat singing and the remarkable natural environment that gave birth to this subtle and beautiful vocal art. Travelers will also participate in a four day horseback ride from Sai Xonash to nearby alpine yak herding pastures. During this excursion, travelers will become familiar with Tuva’s yak herding economy and visit one of the regions most cherished natural resources, the Khoolash waterfall.
