Where should you go to have a memorable Naadam experience? According to leading providers of Mongolia vacation packages, Ulaanbaatar is the best place for celebratingNaadam. Here are the reasons why.

1. The biggest celebration is held in Ulaanbaatar.

The grandest Naadam festival celebration is held annually in the capital and the largest city of Mongolia. Ulaanbaatar commences the festival with a lively and colorful opening ceremony at the national stadium. Here, you will be amazed by the parades, cultural performances, fireworks display, and evening shows. One of the most remarkable events is the Nine White Banners ceremony where the banners carried by Mongolian horse soldiers from Sukhbaatar Square are transferred to Nadaam Stadium.

2. The celebration is all around the city.

All over the city, you will find a variety of unique activities to watch, including the sports events, of course. While the meaning of Naadam is “three manly sports,” there are actually four sports happening simultaneously in different parts of the city. The traditional three sports are horse racing, wrestling, and archery. Ankle-bone-shooting was added later. They are even more fun to watch when you mingle and celebrate together with the locals. Aside from the National Stadium, events are also held at KhuiDoloonKhudag.

3. Ulaanbaatar offers a variety of tourist attractions to explore.
