Festival and Events Tours



Discover the highlights of Mongolia and the Mongolian steppe. Breathtaking landscapes and the warm hospitality of the nomads will remain unforgettable. At the beginning of our trip, there is a special event: the Naadam Festival, the Mongolian National Festival consisting of three disciplines: wrestling, horse racing, and archery. We'll see the Przewalski horses in the Khustai National Park while galloping through the steppe. It will be a truly remarkable moment because they already extinct in the wild. On the way, we'll discover a spectacular place where sand dunes, grass steppe and rock formation combined in one place, followed by a visit to "Erdene Zuu" monastery. Then a day at Lake "Ugii" before the Naadamfest. On the last day of the trip, we'll watch a horse race on the outskirts.


    City-tour in Ulaanbaatar.

    After checking in to the hotel and relaxing from the long flight, we’ll begin our city tour with a visit to the national historical museum. Then we’ll stroll through the “Sukhbaatar” square, which is the central point of the capital. Lastly, we’ll get to know about Mongolian traditional art and then we’ll have a welcome dinner.

We’ll start the day with a drive to the "Khustai" National Park. The park is the habitat of Przewalski horses, which called Takhi in Mongolian. After having our lunch in Ger-camp, we’ll drive a bit into the national park. From the parking lot, we’ll start our 3 hours long hike to see the wild animals like takhi, deer and groundhog. These critically endangered horses were expelled again in 1992. About 15 horses were brought over. As of today, there are over 400 horses in the national park. (Walking time: 3 hours.)

This day we’ll drive east to visit “Kharakhorum”, the former capital of the Mongol Empire of Genghis Khan back in the 13th century. Through his tolerant attitude towards the new and unknown, the capital not only became the hub of the imperial administration and a center of trade and crafts, but also a melting pot of different religions, cultures, and people in the 13th century. After lunch in a Ger-camp, we’ll visit the "Kharakhorum" museum, followed by a visit to the "Erdene Zuu" monastery.

This day is the most remarkable day for all Mongolians. It’s the day of national festival "Naadam". The origin of the festival possibly goes to the "Ikh Khuraldai", which translates to "Great meeting" and were social highlights back in the Middle Ages. The 11th of July was later rearranged as the National Day of Independence, moreover, commemorates the country's proclamation of independence in 1921. The Naadam festival consists of three disciplines such as wrestling, horse racing, and archery. On this day, we’ll see the opening ceremony at the stadium and after having lunch, we’ll see the other discipline, archery and that will conclude our first day.

Earlier in the morning, we will drive to “Khui Doloon Khudag” racecourse to witness a horse race. The best horses in the country will gather in Ulaanbaatar to compete in the race. Mongolian horse trainers train their horses in nature several months before the race, because winning the race means a lot of success and fortune to them. We’ll witness the very first race. Hundreds of horses will be available at the startup point with their riders who are 7-12 years old children.
