Tourists to see Naadam by USD 25

One of the most interesting events of tourists is Mongolian National Holiday Naadam, which occurs on July 11-13 every year.

2500 tourists saw the Naadam last year and currently, more than 500 have given their orders through tour operators to see it.

The Naadam’s ticket reservation is running until July 7, 2009. Per ticket price is USD 25 for foreign tourists.
In connection with it, the UB Tourism Office plans to organize “Opening Mongol” measure for the third year. This measure aims to publicize national costumes, custom and culture.

The Naadam is a traditional type of festival in Mongolia. The festival is also locally termed "eriin gurvan naadam" or "the three games of men". The games are Mongolian wrestling, horse racing and archery and are held throughout the country during the midsummer holidays.
