Mongolia – the Land of Genghis Khan. The country of Gobi desert and famous singing sands. A country with 300 days of sunshine and monasteries and Ovoos. A country where livestock outnumber people. Mongolia is a country of contrasts – it also gives the impression of so much space. A night under the stars in the Gobi Desert is like being inside a planetarium – the sky and the stars seems as though as they leaning over you! Can you imagine come across a river right in the middle of the Gobi Desert? Not quite what you imagined a desert to be right? Then here is more – even in the hot summer months you will find blocks of ice in the Yoly Am. Naadam, an annual festival of wrestling, archery and horse-riding is a national favourite and has a long history of over 800 years. This festival is celebrated nationwide from July 11-15 during the National Holiday.
