FESTIVAL & EVENTS 2017

Mongolia is a country of rich natural wonders and diverse cultural heritages and presents plentiful exciting festivals and events all year around from Tsaatan Reindeer Festival to Golden Eagle Festival, traditional weddings to the Great Naadam Festival to visitors and its’ people.

Some really exhilarating events and festivals are taking place all across this beautiful, vast and ancient land of nomads. This winter and spring, we witnessed some truly wonderful festivals such as Golden Eagle Festival, Khuvsgul Ice Festival and Camel Festival etc so far (don’t get too upset if you missed this year, try next winter-spring!), and there are many more planned for the summer-autumn!
