Herders live in a traditional Mongolian dwelling called a Ger. It is suited for the harsh terrain and lifestyle the herders live. The Ger is a round felt tent covered in durable, waterproof, white canvas and is designed to be able to pack up and move. Its round shape keeps the Ger resilient to Mongolia 's ferocious winds, while its felt is rapidly drying material for when it rains or snow melts.  (U.S. Air Force photo by Tech. Sgt. Jeremy T.
