Naadam is the most widely celebrated Mongolian festival and is a wonderful time to experience the culture and people of Mongolia.  It commemorates the 1921 revolution when Mongolia declared its independence.  All over the Mongolian countryside, small Naadams take place and in the first part of July, the national Naadam is celebrated in Ulaanbaatar.

The three day event brings the best sportsmen from around the country to Ulaanbaatar.  The three sporting competitions represented are horse racing, wrestling and archery.  The opening ceremony features parades and the music of monks, athletes and performers, before the fun begins.
