Route 15 daagse Groepsrondreis Mongolia: Steppes, Deserts & Nomads - Naadam Festival

Itinerary starting Ulaan Baatar 30 June 2022 and 29 June 2023:Rolling steppe makes way to stark desert; small nomadic ger camp pepper this vast land where camels and goats are herded on horseback, fermented mare’s milk is the tipple of choice, sand dunes are known to ‘sing’ and the first intact dinosaur eggs were found. Genghis Khan went forth from here on horseback to conquer the biggest land empire in history and, to this day, Buddhist and Animist traditions mix. In July, all over the country, people come together to compete in wrestling, archery, horse racing and ankle bone flicking during the Naadam Festival but traditions can be witnessed throughout the year. We travel through steppe, mountain and the Gobi desert exploring the nature and culture of this fascinating, yet little known, country.For the itinerary starting Ulaan Baatar 7 July 2022 - click here.
