Camel Festival tour /5 DAYS/

Short description

One of our most popular festivals is the Bactrian Camel Festival. This takes place in the Gobi Desert and gives you a rare opportunity to interact with the Bactrian camels. You will learn firsthand about these beautiful animals at the festival, which is organized by the camel herders in March. This exciting and fun event includes traditional music, costume competitions, dancing, and camel racing.
After the festivities end, travelers are able to ride the camels and visit some of the Gobi Desert’s unique sights. This includes dinosaur bones. This is a great opportunity to help you learn about nomad camel herders and their loved ones.
