Nadam 那达慕

13 December 2018 in 通海县兴蒙乡 Xingmeng, Tonghai

Thousands of miles from the grasslands of Mongolia, the Mongolians in Xingmeng have preserved their ethnic identity since the times of Kublai Khan. And even though they have only nine horses today, they still celebrate the Nadam festival of their ancestors.

Note, the festival is held only every three years.

Festival held according to western/solar calendar on 13.12. There is another component to calculate this date!
