WINTER FESTIVALS IN MONGOLIA
Winter in Mongolia is cold, but incredibly beautiful. Temperatures here typically ranging from -20°C to – 45°C degrees. Traditionally, it is a quiet season for tourists. In a country still largely undeveloped, and with a rudimentary infrastructure, many parts of Mongolia are difficult to negotiate in the winter. The extreme cold dissuades visitors further. But this is exactly how we like it. Mongolia’s winters are home to incredible landscapes for those who are prepared.
We offer a unique opportunity with Mongolia’s dramatic winter landscapes to attend a festival held on the frozen surface of Lake Hovsgol, and join a celebration in honor of the Gobi’s Bactrian camel.
SUMMER FESTIVALS IN MONGOLIA
Summer in Mongolia is the warmest season, as sometimes temperatures can reach +40 centigrade (average the temperature is from +10’C-27’C), air is dry and pleasant to travel around. Also the summer is when Mongolia gets the majority of its rainfall. Mongolian herders eagerly await these rains for the grass they bring their livestock, and the steppe turns from a dry, dead tan to its beautiful green. Summer is when many semi-nomadic families will head out from the aimag cities to the countryside in order to tend their herds, shear their wool, and create a bewildering array of dairy products.
Most tourists’ flock here in summer to enjoy the comfortable temperatures and see the vast landscapes of wide open country and nomadic culture.
GOLDEN EAGLE FESTIVAL
The Eagle festival, or Golden Eagle festival (Бүргэдийн наадам/ бүркіт той), is an annual traditional festival held in Bayan-Ölgii aimag, Mongolia. In the eagle festival, Kazakh eagle hunters (Burkitshi) celebrate their heritage and compete to catch small animals such as foxes and hares with specially trained golden eagles, showing off the skills both of the birds and their trainers. Prizes are awarded for speed, agility and accuracy, as well as for the best traditional Kazakh dress, and more.
The Eagle Festival is held during the first weekend in October, run by the Mongolian Eagle Hunter's Association.
Mongolia is a country that exudes richness of culture, uniqueness of traditions, true nomadic life, breathtaking landscapes and a proud historical past.
