Buyandelger was born in the capital of Ulaanbaatar, Mongolia, and spent his childhood living with his grandparents amongst the livestock and wilderness of Uvurkhangai province in Central Mongolia. Riding horses and herding sheep or cattle was an everyday occurrence for him, and the nomadic lifestyle of the wilderness became a routine that Buya could not live without. Buya’s dreams turned toward tour guiding and the travel industry. After studying Tourism Management at the Mongolian University of Humanities, he started his career at Nomadic Expeditions as a waiter at our award-winning Three Camel Lodge. In 2011, he participated in the Tourism Competition of Mongolia, known as the Young Tourism Pro, and won first place. After a number of years spent guiding, Buya now works from our Ulaanbaatar office as travel manager, helping to ensure the quality of our programs.
