Ice Festival

Tour 410

The bear is dancing on the meter-thick frozen ice. A superlative ice festival in the north of Mongolia, not only in terms of temperatures. The ice festival of the nomads at Lake Khovguul. High in the north of Mongolia, people meet every year at the hardest winter time in March and celebrate the ice festival at Lake Khovsguul. The festival celebrates the fact that the hardest season is over and that soon the spring migration of the animals will begin. The festival takes place on the mighty ice of the frozen lake. Nomads who otherwise live very scattered in the vast solitude take the arduous and sometimes long journey from all parts of the country to participate in this unique festival. We have the opportunity to participate in this festival and can witness the colorful hustle and bustle on the ice. For two days we are guests of the reindeer herders and shamans at the Khovsguul lake. In the evening we experience the warm folklore of the people around the campfire on the ice. During the day we are in the middle of the competitions. Horse racing, wrestling, skating, are just some of the sports. The "arm wrestling" on the ice floe, is especially popular with the nomadic

1.000 Camel Festival

1.000 Camel Festival

Tour 411

The two-humped camel still plays an important role in the life of the nomads in the Gobi. What could be more natural than to organize a festival around this two-humped cloven-hoofed camel. Every year in March, since 1997, more than 1,000 camels meet in the South Gobi, near Dalandzagad, for what is probably a unique festival. The origin of the festival was to protect the camel population and to promote the exchange of information among breeders. This has now become one of the largest festivals in the South Gobi. The camel festival is not just a tourist event. It is one of the biggest festivals and celebrations that the desert nomads of the Gobi prepare and eagerly await……..

Winter travel

Winter travel

Experience the winter in Mongolia, an experience of the rather cooler kind. Temperatures in the country fall well below -40°C at night, during the day it hardly gets warmer than -12°C, but still this season exerts a fascination on people. Crystal clear and extremely cold air in the steppe, a really very dry cold and an endless steppe landscape colored in absolute white are the stage where the Mongolian winter performs its spectacle. Winter lasts from November to April. This is the time when people sit closer together in the yurt, tell each other the old stories and in the evening sing the old songs of the steppe, which are about spring and summer. Then, when the temperatures have reached their lowest point, exactly when the first new moon in the new year appears in the sky, exactly then the Mongolian New Year – Tsaagan Tsar – is celebrated in the country of the nomads. A festival that has its origin in the time when the hunters set out to make rich booty in winter, which was then distributed to the tribe members, is the most important festival in the year for the Mongols. Experience the uniqueness of this festival, or just recharge your batteries from the tranquility of the Mongolian winter. The Tsaagan Tsar Festival is the prelude to a whole series of festivals that follow each other in March and April, each of which is a unique experience. Steppenfuchs Reisen has put together several different trips for you in winter.

In the winter

It is cold, really cold at night the thermometer drops to partly – 50°C, but in the yurt it is cozy warm. Experience the Mongolian winter, which has many beautiful sides. Extremely clear and dry air, cuts into the skin, like whiplash, but compensates for this a landscape that is dipped in white to the horizon. And then, the silence, which almost hurts again in the ear. The rhythm of the day becomes calm and relaxed. Take this unusual time out and experience the uniqueness of the Mongolian winter. Live like the nomads in harmony with nature and the coldest season.

Winter trip
