4 days Naadam Games in Ulaan Bataar
Itinerary (Ulaan Bataar - Naadam Games - Ulaan Bataar )

Ancient medieval games still survive in Mongolia and are part of the Living Cultural Heritage of our country. Wrestling, horserace and archery are still the most popular sports. In July, the National Naadam is held in our capital and all across the country. The largest being in Ulaanbaatar itself. Herdsmen arrive on horseback from distant provinces, simultaneously training their horses. Such a journey lasts for anything between one to three months! A giant nomadic camp is being set up on the Yarmag Steppe area, between the city and the Bogd Khan Mountain Biosphere Reserve during the night .

This program is a close encounter with the Mongol Three Man Games of horseracing, wrestling and archery. Skills required and practiced during the medieval times of Genghis Khan armies, and perhaps as way back as during the time of the Huns.

This is a brief encounter with the Mongolian capital, Ulaanbaatar and its immediate surroundings during Naadam times. The itinerary should be understood as tentative in order to accommodate any changes in the Naadam programs made or change of restricted areas by the police. Overbooking of hotels is likely.
We have the experience of Naadam every year, and we know how to anticipate any problems. It is a time everyone wants to be there which includes the Mongolian government inviting VIPs and other official guests, why accommodation and transport are in short supply.

Private tour: Ulaan Bataar

Day  1
Ulaanbaatar : 11 July (-/Lunch/Diner)
A.m. Naadam is being opened officially by the President of Mongolia. Soldiers on horseback, sometimes dressed in Genghis Khan warrior regalia, will bring the nine white horsetail banners. They will get the banners at the Parliament where they are normally displayed and will then ride in procession through the city, later to be placed in the center if the Stadium, from where we will be viewing the Opening Ceremony.
The first round of wrestling will start immediately thereafter. Usually 512 wrestlers from all across Mongolia will compete in the first round! But sometimes more than 700! No judges, no time limits and no weight limits!
There is a chance to attempt to see the archery competitions (if not done the previous day) and later find our way out to the steppe area on the fringes of the city.
Visit to the nomadic tented camps that have sprung up, and experience a concentration of nomadic Mongolia at one site! Herdsmen have come with their horses and all provisions for the festivities, which include airag ( koumiss; fermented mares milk)for the merry making.
Stroll around the area and you are likely to be invited in somewhere.
You may also try your luck at the finals of the horse races, but prior instructions are necessary, since the coming of a full horserace of several hundred, is a potentially hazardous situation.

Day  2
Naadam : 12 July (Breakfast/-/-)
Our services ends after breakfast (and transfer to the airport if applicable), as we will have covered all aspects of Naadam earlier days.
You may remain in the city with entrance tickets provided for the National Stadium and final rounds of wrestling and awards, if not continuing on our trips further into the great Mongolian void. You need be careful with hotel reservations and advice us early if intending to stay beyond mid day.
