Mongolian tour for 24 days for $8222 for Australians kk


Mongolia and the Naadam Festival

From $8,222 – 24 Days, Fully Inclusive from selected Australian cities

The great Khans of Mongolia created the largest land empire the world has ever known. The most famous of all was Genghis Khan, the relentless warrior who forever marked his birthplace on the map. Remote and stunning, Mongolia is still relatively unexplored by modern day travellers and its charm lies fi rmly in that fact. The country is blessed with endless plains with beautiful backdrops, warm-hearted people with simplistic views of the world and a fascinating history.

One of the special features you will encounter on this tour is experiencing first-hand the annual Naadam Festival, a local celebration of the Mongolian people and culture. The festivals origins can be traced to the Mongol Army with horseracing, wrestling and archery competitions favoured by the locals and visitors alike.
