Last updated by chinatravel at 2017/4/30

Kumiss in Mongolian called “Qige” or “Airige’. It a kind of drink with low alcoholicity and made of horse milk. The local people here usually put fresh horse milk into a peltry bursa, and then hang it under sun. Every day they will churn up the horse milk for several times so as to ferment it and then let it become sour. When the horse milk turns to be colorless and transparent, it will be ready as Kumiss which tastes quite sour and spicy.
