Itinerary

Day 1:

You will leave Hohhot in the Anda Guesthouse Minibus/Bus with your lovely guides and set off on a trip, which takes around 6 hours. The scenery is staggering (I strongly recommend putting the ‘action’ or ‘movement’ setting on your camera and get snapping!) You will have one toilet stop.

You will retire to your hotel (included in the price) not too late so that you are ready to arise at 4am.

Day 2:

Your guides will be waiting outside in the mini bus /bus where they will take you on an approximately 1 hour (Because, every time the Naadam Festival is held in different place, so the distance may be shorter or longer than 1 hour.) journey to the festival (nice nap time as it is still pitch black!!).

It is cold, so make use of your jumpers whilst you wait for the sun to rise.

When the sun has risen you will be taken by bus to the summit of a large hill. This will be decorated in traditional Nadaam festival colours, flags and stones. There will also be a series of ready prepared offerings, one of these including a goat (the meat is ready prepared and on a plate).

camelThe days activities will then commence. It will begin with local children racing Mongolian horses through a 10km! course. This was the highlight of the experience for me. The guides drive the mini bus to the start of the race, and then follow the horses alongside on the road. This experiencing is very exhilarating, and you almost feel like part of the race!! Again an excellent opportunity for photographs!

You will then be ordered into a large circle, where you can either watch or take part…yes you can live out your fantasies of being a real wrestler…leathers and all!!! This is complete with trophies and music!

You may then get to see some archery!(May not. Because not every time there is a archery).

Then we will go ahead to Border City Erlian and stay over night there.

Day 3:

You have some free time after the breakfast. Start the return journy after the lunch. You will get to Hohhot in 6 hours.
