Mongolia: Mongolian Horizons

7 July to 21 July 2019

Meet one of the last nomadic cultures on earth, where a traditional way of life endures as it did a millennium ago. Just three million people inhabit a country the size of Western Europe, half of them moving seasonally with their animals and still living in portable felt tents called Ger. It is a land where you can experience wide-open spaces, cobalt blue skies, forests, deserts, crystal clear rivers and lakes, and the traditional hospitality of the nomads.

Subject to 10 participants, Zen Oriental Journeys appoints tour managers and leaders who have significant experience in management at senior levels and are experienced in professional tour leadership. 'Mongolian Horizons' will be led from Australia by Ruth Flaherty, an Arts educator and currently Academic Tutor, Flinders University’s Faculty of Education. Ruth specialised in textiles and design at the SA School of Art. Her thesis explored ‘Three Dimensional textiles’ and she has taught textile art at TAFE SA and in schools. Her textile work has been exhibited in many exhibitions including RSASA, SALA and the exclusive fibre and textiles exhibition 'Stranded'. Ruth also holds a M.Ed. (Studies of Asia) and has been a tour manager for many Asian and European tours.
