Mongolian herdsmen drive horses back into the Darhad Valley after wintering on the other side of the 10,000-foot (3,000-meter) mountains that rise in the background. People have moved their herds over these mountains for generations. But a government effort to transition Mongolia’s nomadic people to more stable urban lives could soon mean the end of this twice-yearly trek.

在背后那些10000英尺(3000米)高的山峰的另一面过完冬天之后,蒙古牧民驱赶着马群回到Darhad山谷。一代复一代,人们带着他们的牧群翻越这些山峰。但是政府正在将蒙古游牧民族转变成稳定城市生活的努力很快将成为这种一年两次艰苦跋涉的终点。
