Visiting a fairy tale: the life on the lake in the Eastern Sayan Mountains

• Visiting a fairy tale: the life on the lake in the Eastern Sayan Mountains

Hovsgol - Alpine lake, located on the southern slope of the Eastern Sayan Mountains in the north of Mongolia. Here, far away from civilization lives a family of reindeer herders. To get here, the photographer Joel Santoso took 3 days to go by car, and another day - on a horse. Total - 1000 km.

But it was worth the stylus. Not every day was a guest at a fairy tale - that is seen as a life in the wilderness, at the slope of the Eastern Sayan Mountains, on Lake Blue pearl.
