Mongolian Great Naadam Festival 2019

The Naadam Festival is the major Mongolian national and public holiday and celebrated every year by whole of Mongolia, every city, town and villages.
Our spectacular journey allows you to experience the Naadam Festival and Mongolia's biggest ever sporting events. Naadam games include wrestling and archery, horseracing (jockeys are children aged 6-11 boys and girls and race 15-30 kilometres). It is called the “Three Manly Games”, Naadam, or “Games”, and is certainly intended for the more intrepid.
Also it is impossible to imagine the Mongolian Naadam Festival without tasting Huushuur- deep fried pie, Airag- fermented mare’s milk and real Mongolian Barbeque- stone grilled mutton.
This is the best time to discover Mongolia and join to nomadic people who have the party atmosphere of Naadam Festival.

Hi Ganaa and Buyant
I can confirm that Hovd Tour organised a fantastic
Mongolian adventure for me. From the greeting at the airport I was filled with confidence that I was in capable hands and my feelings were proved correct.
At no time did I ever feel uneasy whilst such a long way from home, my guides were always on hand and their English is excellent, there was never a dull moment from start to finish.
I would not hesitate to recommend Hovd Tour too you, they are a very capable and reputable organisation who can tailor any kind of holiday you desire. I will most certainly be using their services again....

Thanks Ganaa,

Ganaa my friend for life
I would like to thank you for organising our tour of UB and the
neighboring countryside last year. Thanks to you we saw some great sights
in the city - some of historical interest and others of great beauty! I
particularly enjoyed our trip to the market, where your local knowledge and
humor proved invaluable. Without your help, I would never have had the
opportunity to experience a night out in the 'Countryside' with a
traditional Mongolian family.
The horse riding will forever
remain in my memory......

Hi Hovd Tour
We had amazing time in Mongolia. We enjoyed the horse trek very much in the nice countryside around Valley of Orkhon River.
