For the brief about shamans in Northern Mongolia; the shaman might wear a headdress to resemble a bird, with the tail of pheasant and the body costume of a fish. Drums are used to help the shaman enter the trance-like state, as chanting begins and the shaman “transcends “into another world while the body dances, swirls or totters with jerky movements. Shamanism went underground during the former communist period, but has been revived recently. This authentic shaman ritual would be one of the most uncommon objects to capture in Mongolia. You can collect amazing photo shoots and experience unique culture on this Mongolian Photo Tour.
