Mongolia Holidays

We love our holidays! And there are a lot of them- over 40 public holidays are celebrated every year. I’ve been living in Mongolia for my whole life, and my favorite holiday is Naadam. It’s a three-day festival that celebrates Mongolian culture and heritage. There are Mongolian wrestling, horse racing, and archery competitions, and everyone dresses up in traditional Mongolian clothes. The whole country comes together to celebrate, and it’s a really wonderful experience. If you ever have the chance to visit Mongolia during Naadam, I highly recommend it!
