Then have some time to enjoy the peace of the surrounding nature and the intact culture of these unpretentious people. At sunset, see one of the beauties of pastoral life: the sweet moment when the little lambs that have stayed in the stable for the whole day rush to reunite with their mothers that have returned from their graze.
In the peace of the night, enjoy the warmth of a friendly gathering around a cozy campfire while listening to the nomads tell you tales of pastoral life. Spending the night under the protection of nomadic tents or even camping next to them will be the sweet experience of a lifetime. Sleep tight!
