Mongolia Nadaam Excitement

Mongolia Nadaam Excitement

During the biggest festival of the year in Mongolia, sports take precedence in the party making, even in the smallest of communities throughout the nation. Ancient games are played. Long horse races are held. Longevity is key and most jockeys make it, but, sadly not always the carrier. Friends and families commune. There is a lot of cheek kissing and child scolding (worldwide, children know when parents are distracted), warming up the horse blood behind the scenes and just horsing around on a steed among your community members, imbibing special festival food and drink. Watch your step as you check out the Mongolian people celebrating one of their favourite times of the year, Nadaam. Don’t get in the path of a speeding horse.
