Tuva

The semi-autonomous region of Tuva is a singular cultural destination whose ethnic Turkic population has been imbued with Buddhism, shamanism and khoomei, or throat-singing. MIR regularly takes groups of travelers on excursions to meet Tuvan locals, experience a shaman ceremony and attend private concerts featuring the eerie sounds of Tuvan throat-singing.
