Naadam Festival and stay at Lake Khuvsgul
Meet reindeer 8 days tour

For Mongolians, "Naadam", which is held in July at the height of summer, is the most memorable event. From the 11th to the 15th, it will be a holiday, and songs praising the power in each region of Mongolia, the voices of children riding racehorses enthusiastic about the horses, the sounds of bows and arrows, and the sounds of long songs echo. The opening ceremony of Naadam will be held at the central stadium in the southern part of Ulaanbaatar at 11:00 am on July 11. From the entrance of the stadium, a volunteer in full dress enters on a horse. In the beginning, volunteers on nine white horses are raising white flags. This flag has been used in national ceremonies since the time of Genghis Khan and is made of 99 white horse hairs. After the volunteers set nine flags on a circular platform in the center of the stadium, the president gave a ceremony and the national anthem began to be performed.

Lake Khuvsgul is located in the northwestern part of Mongolia at the foot of the East Sayan Mountains near the Russian border. At an altitude of 1,645 meters above sea level, it has a long north-south shape, with a length of 136 kilometers, a width of 36.5 kilometers, and a maximum water depth of 262 meters. "Lake Khuvsgul", which is close to the Russian border, is surrounded by coniferous forests and its natural landscape is similar to that of Switzerland and Scandinavian forests in the European Alps. The size is the second in Mongolia and the depth is the largest. There is a reindeer nomad "Tsaatan" near Lake Khuvsgul. Tsaatan refers to "people with reindeer". The dwelling is mobile, but unlike the "ger" it has a conical shape. The river water that flows out of the lake leads to Lake Baikal in Russia. You can enjoy plant observation, trekking, horse riding and fishing.
