Mongolia: Travel to the land of harmony. “Crying Camel”

In early March, an event takes place in Mongolia that many travelers and adventure lovers are waiting for. The festival of a thousand camels begins! This festival takes place in those places where the film “Weeping Camel” was created. A documentary drama created by a joint group of filmmakers from Mongolia and Germany in 2003 shocked documentary film fans. The film was released on the world screen in 2004. Director – Byambasuren Davaa. Writer – Luigi Faloni.
The film tells about the family of nomadic shepherds living in the Gobi Desert who are trying to save the life of a rare white bactrian camel (Camelus bactrianus) rejected by their mother. The documentary was nominated for an Oscar in the category “Best Documentary”.

Spring in Mongolia. At this time, the shepherds – the height of the work. Camels are born. One of the camels had the first calving. She barely gives birth to a rare calf. He’s white.
Despite the efforts of the shepherds’ family, the young camel mother refuses to feed him and care for him. To restore contact between mother and calf, nomads summon Buddhist monks who perform the ritual. The ritual sounds of a conch and bell sound. Then begins the sacred act. But the ritual cannot restore harmony between the mother and the camel!
The family decides to call a special musician to play the sacred melodies for the Hus ritual.

Two boys with a caravan go on a journey through the desert in search of a musician.
The musician was found together with Morin Huur (musical instrument), he arrives in the nomadic and performs the sacred melodies and rite of Hus. This soothing and beautiful melody Hus sounds often in the film. At the sound of Maureen Huura, the camel begins to cry and the mother and son are reunited. She takes it.

Kailash organizes tours to this festival. Each traveler has a unique opportunity to plunge into the winter life of the nomadic Mongols, to attend the festival of thousands of camels, the festival of hunting eagles; to see how the game of Maureen Huura, a traditional stringed instrument, can soften the camel’s heart and she will cry and take to feed the rejected camel. If all human tragedies could have been resolved like that, playing on Maureen Huura!

An experienced traveler, Mongolian Batbayar, who participated in the shooting of the movie “Weeping Camel” accompanies the group on this trip! He will tell fascinating stories about life in the Gobi Desert.
