This trip is a chance to enjoy some of the best bits of Mongolian culture and scenery. The summer Naadam festival is celebrated in every city, town and village and is a sporting event with horse racing, wrestling and archery competitions. The occasion is an opportunity for everyone to dress up, ride their best horse and make the most of the 2-day Naadam. A visit to Mongolia would not be complete without travelling to the Orkhon Valley where Genghis Khan established the capital of the great Mongol Empire. A huge Buddhist monastery was built on the same site in the sixteenth century.
