Stay with A Mongolian Reindeer Herding Tribe


If you are an out-of-the-ordinary traveler, a stay with a Mongolian reindeer herding tribe would be a thrilling experience. World’s most remote Airbnb is opening up travel to some of the most remote places in the world. You can now book a stay with a Mongolian nomadic tribe and experience their culture and way of life first hand.

Mongolian tribes are largely nomadic. They shift with their heard according to changing seasons. The tribes are always friendly and open to interaction with tourists. However, many tourists are not able to keep track of their movements. Airbnb is now making it possible to track them and help you book a stay with them.


What3words is a London-based location identification service. It eliminates the complexity of the GPS system of coordinates, by substituting it with a system of 10 ft by 10 ft squares spread across the world. Each location is mapped into three words. Nomadic tribes such as those from Mongolia are able to create an address to indicate where they are.

Airbnb has teamed up with What3words to be able to pinpoint the locations of the tribes and allow you to book a stay with them. The tribes will always update their locations using What3words. The system is still being fine-tuned as the headers complain of lack of proper network.
