Your Guide

Hey, I am Duuya

Hi, I am Duuya and I will accompany you during your adventure in Mongolia. I am the youngest daughter of a family of ten and I grew up in Uvs province, one of the most remote regions of Mongolia. Until I turned 12, I helped my parents with the animals every summer. I learned to milk cows, sheep, goats and yaks. I am sure that my childhood has intensively shaped the me I am today. Would you like to explore the Mongolian world with me? I am looking forward to meeting you!
