Mongolia is well known for its nomadic traditions. The nomadic way of lifestyle is still practiced today in the rural areas of the country. Nomads follow a seasonal routine raising and breeding the five main types of stock – goat, sheep, cattle (including yaks), camel and horse, migrating from place to place following the most favorable pastures and campsites.

Mongolians also follow Tibetan Buddhist teachings (also called Lamaism), and has a small Muslim community – about 6 per cent of the population.
