Many tour op­er­a­tors have sprung up in re­cent years. Some don’t pass on any money to no­mad com­mu­ni­ties that host tourists or of­fer only per­func­tory gifts. Check your op­er­a­tor’s pol­icy and for more off-the-beaten-track lo­ca­tions, con­sider buy­ing some sim­ple items (ba­sic food­stuffs, books for chil­dren) to give your host fam­ily when you leave.

The Tsaatan Com­mu­nity & Vis­i­tors Cen­ter, www.visit­taiga.org, helps the Tsaatan earn a sus­tain­able in­come and guards against ex­ploita­tion from un­scrupu­lous tourism op­er­a­tors.
