Danshig Naadam Festival of Mongolia tour

Hui Doloon Hudag, Karakorum, Mongolia
2 ~ 8 people

Danshig Naadam stands as Mongolia's grandest religious and cultural festival, symbolizing the profound influence of Buddhism on the nation's people and heritage. Beyond the array of Buddhist rituals, attendees can immerse themselves in spirited competitions and thought-provoking spiritual debates among monks. The festival also features cultural activities such as the Three Games of Men—archery, wrestling, and horse races—alongside captivating Tsam masked dance ceremonies.

Tsam dancing, a nuanced and intricate ritual, demands considerable study and training from the performing monks. Visitors often find themselves captivated by the harmonious blend of music, dance, and the elaborate Tsam masks worn by the performers.

After 70 years of communist rule that suppressed the religious freedom of the Mongols, the revival of Danshig Naadam serves as a guardian against the erosion of Mongolia's invaluable cultural heritage, ensuring its preservation for future generations. We extend a warm invitation for you to join in this celebration, uniting with Mongolians, foreign guests, and friends to share the richness of this cultural extravaganza.
