Dinner with traditional dishes of Tuvan cuisine, meat and dairy products cooked specially for the guests in our yurt camp. After dinner, enjoy the performance with the traditional throat singing – “khoomei”. The throat singing is a fantastical capability of the Tuva people (and some other Siberian nationalities) to emit simultaneously two or three sounds of a different tone and to sustain the same sound for 25-30 seconds without taking a breath. If you close your eyes it is hard to believe that the sounds are emitted by a person and not by a musical instrument.


In the evening, you will see a bewitching show: shamans “kamlaniye”. Kamlaniye is a magical communication between shamans and spirits. During this ritual, the shamans dance around the fire, sing and beat a drum. Kamlaniye will leave a long-lasting impression, nobody remains indifferent after this ritual. There the shamans will tell you about their traditions, rituals and abilities. After that, you will get an opportunity to ask them about your future, your health and experience the ritual of purification*.

Breakfast at the yurt camp, lunch in a restaurant, dinner at the yurt camp.
