The weather America experiences all year round is nothing compared to what these people go through.

These people are known as the Kazakh Nomads of Mongolia, and their style of living is drastically different from ours.

The area the family is in is subject to both extreme hot and cold weather, along with having many rocky paths. Because of this, the family is required to move between their summer and winter homes year-round, to make it easier not just for themselves, but their animals as well.

And given the size of the herd they live with, moving them doesn’t look like an easy task in the slightest.

But this video shows the family making the near-100-mile trip, courtesy of Joel Santos, a videographer. In fact, this is the first time an outsider was able to come into their family.

The family’s herd is made up of sheep, horses, and yaks—they must always stay close to water so that everyone stays hydrated.

It’s not an easy trip, but after a few days, everyone is able to make it, safe and sound.

It must take so much willpower to be able to care of an entire herd of animals during this near-week-long trip, but the fact that they do this multiple times a year shows how resilient the family is.
