Do you want to explore the mystery of how nomads survive with their five snouts of pastoral animals within temperatures as low as minus 30 degrees? Or do you want an extraordinary experience like riding Mongolian horses or enjoying a sleigh on the snow-covered vast white steppe? Perhaps you are missing natural black ice, about 1.5 m thick. And want you to skate on it?

You can find all your winter dreams come true in Mongolia during its Ice Festival! Participation in the Ice Festival at Lake Khuvsgul offers you incredible memories.
The "Ice Festival" will be held simultaneously with the International Skating Event, including some enjoyable activities such as shamanic live performances, sumo wrestling on the ice, horse sleigh competition, and ice driving.
