about camel of mongolia

Mongolian camels known as two-humped Bactrian camels are native to the steppes of Central Asia. They were domesticated thousands of years ago to carry goods and people across Asia.
Mongolian Camels are exceptionally adept at withstanding wide variations in temperature ranging from +40 degree summers to -40 degree winters and when nourished they can go without eating and drinking for weeks. They have a remarkable ability to go without water for months at a time but when water is available they may drink up to 60 liters at once. Their humps act as fat reserves for energy. At the end of summer their humps are plump and erect but as resources decline, they shrink and lean to sides. Adapted for desert conditions, the camels can carry 200 kg on long journeys. The Bactrian camels permit nomads to transport heavy loads through desert and other inhospitable terrain. In addition to camel’s importance for transport, Mongolians value camel’s wool, drink its milk and process into cheese. Lately we are making huge effort to protect and preserve the Bactrian camel population which has been increasingly declining over the last twenty years. In 2016, Camel Festival assembled over 1,100 camels and broke a Guinness World Record for largest camel festival. The festival has been organized for nearly 20 years by local herding communities under the purpose of protecting two humped Bactrian camels and increase income and productivity of local nomads through tourism and raise awareness of Mongolian younger generation to their own unique culture and heritage.
