Mongolia is fast becoming one of our favourite summer destinations. Before it becomes too touristy, YPT takes you to this quintessential land of wilderness! This trip is a great introduction to a country that can often take a lot of time and effort to visit. Not only will you get to scratch off the list all the activities which Mongolia is renowned for, but you will also get the chance to see one of the world’s most interesting cultural events, Naadam Festival.
The moment we arrive we’ll head to visit both the Mount Khogno nature reserve and Terelj National Park, both famed for their wildlife and unforgettable trekking opportunities. We’ll ride camels in the dunes and horses on the steppes before heading back to Ulan Bator right in time for the festivities of Naadam. Naadam is centered around 3 main sports – horse riding, wrestling and archery. After taking in the festival, we will spend a day checking out all the highlights of the capital. It wouldn’t be a YPT tour without checking out massive Soviet monuments and political museums.
Naadam is the biggest event in Mongolia, attracting massive crowds. We can expect accommodations and tickets for the festival to be sold out months in advance. Don’t be left out, book now!
And why stop there? Continue on the YPT train over the border to Russia and visit Buryatia Irkutsk and Lake Baikal!
