Dear All

Good luck

Mongolia border post vs Nadaam

Postby roro » Wed Jan 31, 2018 4:47 pm

Hi,

I've planned to exit Mongolia by Tashanta border post on Monday 9th July 2018.
It's before Nadaam, I think , (somebody have official dates this year?) and also after week-end.
Do you think all is ok for me about this schedule?

Thanks in advance.

The dates seem to differ.

Big cities&towns, Naadam festival was celebrated on 11-12 July.

In small towns, Naadam festival was celebrated on 9-10 July.

The biggest festival in UB went on for a week though.

Thanks Steven or these infos.
But about border closure (Tashenta for me) what I have to expect?
Is it possible to know in advance if it is closed on 9-10 July 2018?

I recommend asking someone with very specific Mongolia knowledge - the tourist office of Mongolia is actually quite good AFAIK. An embassy in UB, or the border guard HQ in UB is another option.

Thanks again.
It's difficult to fin a "true" (i.e; reliable "tourist office" via Google).
I'm going to send a message to our embassy in UB, hoping they find some time to send me a reply...;)
