Festival tours

There are a number of interesting festivals held throughout the year in Mongolia. The biggest festival is the Naadam Festival, which takes place in mid-July. During Naadam, competitors test their might in wrestling, horse-racing, and archery – the three pillars of ancient nomadic steppe warriors. There is also the Eagle Festival, an event organized to keep alive the tradition of hunting with golden eagles, practiced by the Kazakhs of western Mongolia. Moreover, there are winter festivals such as the Ice Festival, held in northern Mongolia at the country’s largest freshwater lake that has frozen over. And the Camel Festival, which is organized to celebrate the heritage of locals inhabiting the Gobi Desert. With Mongolian Tour Experts, you can join or include one of these festivals onto our web-listed tour as an extension according to a suitable date for you.
