Surviving Winter in The Altay | Photography by Tariq Sawyer (@tariqsawyerphotos) | “Winter in Mongolia can be so notoriously harsh they have their own word, "dzud", to describe the most extreme conditions,” writes #YourShotPhotographer Tariq Sawyer. “During a "dzud" vast numbers of livestock die from starvation due to the lack of graze or from freezing temperatures that can reach -50 degrees Celsius. A "white dzud" is when heavy snow prevents livestock from grazing. With around a third of the Mongolian population dependent on pastoral farming for their livelihoods a “dzud” has devastating consequences for the country.” #YourShotPhotographer
