The seven khoshuus of Khalkha gathered annually at Danshig Naadam and competed in Three Manly Games of the Mongols – archery, wrestling and horse racing.

In Mongolia, the Tsam was introduced at the beginning of the 18th century and the first tsam performance in Mongolia was in Erdene-Zuu Monastery in 1786.

NOTES TOUR NOTES Hotels in Ulaanbaatar city reserved for double occupancy on more than 2pax, and in countryside, all ger-styled tourist camps are based on three or four person occupancy. Your accommodation uses standard rooms unless otherwise specified on your itinerary. Check-in at hotels is at 2:00pm/Check-out is at 12:00pm. Traveling over long distances is done in 4 x 4 vehicles, often over rough terrain, for approximately 4 to 9 hours depending upon road and weather conditions. Daily driving distance is around 150-350 km. Your holiday includes transfers, accommodation and excursions as specified in your itinerary. The board basis for your holiday is detailed at the end of each day. It is the responsibility of the client to be fully covered with travel and medical insurance while traveling in Mongolia. THE MONGOLIAN GER The only hotels in Mongolia are in the capital, Ulaanbaatar. Throughout the countryside, accommodation is offered in the form of traditional Mongolian gers. These ger camps are slightly modified for tourists, but in effect, offer a traditional experience and the opportunity to experience Mongolia’s wilderness. The gers are made from wooden frames with layers of canvas and felt. Interior wood is carved or brightly painted and they are equipped with two or more beds, a small table and stools. Communal bathroom facilities are in basic, but clean blocks nearby. There are also restaurants and bars in a separate building, or in large gers. Whilst visiting Mongolia is hugely rewarding, it is a wilderness destination and the accommodation is basic. Juulchin Tourism Corporation uses the best gers available in each area and the itinerary has been put together to enable stays in the best camps at the most attractive locations. SUGGESTED CLOTHES & PACKING LIST What clients should expect for meals: What is available in Mongolia? Generally, the quality of meals in Mongolia is good, due to the quality of meat, which is 100% organic and free-range. Meals in the city will be in restaurants, which serve European, Asian and Mongolian cuisines. In the ger camps, the meals will be either European or Mongolian. When camping with tents, meals will be much simpler. Extremes of weather and how to prepare for them: The temperature can change from day to night unpredictably and drastically, so, one should bring warm clothes to wear during the nighttime. Waterproof wind jacket, gloves and hat are also essential. What to bring – including clothing, food, equipment: Other items to pack include: Trekking boots, warm clothes, sunglasses, lip balm, forehead flashlight, notebook and pens, spare batteries, a compass, multiple copies of identification, medical kit first aid box, your personal toiletries (including hand and bath towel, shampoo and shower gel, toothpaste and toothbrush, dental floss). Wear a money belt for your valuables (passport, cash, etc.), Money exchange information: Travellers should carry a supply of clean and new US dollar bills. Traveller cheques are not common in Mongolia. Credit cards (Visa or MasterCard) are only accepted in Ulaanbaatar. Most Asian and European currencies can be traded in Ulaanbaatar, but the US dollar is the most reliable form of currency. The money can be changed in banks and exchange offices. TOURIST VISAS OF MONGOLIA Government of Mongolia approves a list of countries with a visa-free access to Mongolia. Please kindly refer to the official website of the Ministry of Foreign Affairs of Mongolia – http://www.mfa.gov.mn/ Juulchin Tourism Corporation provides visa support and issues invitation letters for Mongolia to customers from other countries. TOUR INFORMATION HOME TRUTHS We aim to provide accurate and detailed information and to make you aware of the less positive aspects of the journey you are undertaking. Some facts you should be aware of are outlined below: Minor problems can occur and a flexible attitude is required when traveling in less developed areas.

LOCAL TOUR GUIDES English-speaking local guides join us throughout tours to provide indepth knowledge and interpretation. Our guides are carefully selected for their travel experience, maturity and skills as a host.
