    Hi there,
    Glad I came across your blog, you seem to be living an interesting life (not in the classically bad Chinese proverbial way). I’ll be in Murun at the end of the month, headed to Lake Khuvsgul, and I’m trying to decide whether to make it in time for Nadaam in Murun. I’d like to go, but I’d have to completely rearrange things to get there for the last day. If it’s wonderful, I’ll do it, but if it’s just kind of nice, I’d probably choose to relax a bit. Any thoughts are much appreciated.

    • Hey Erik, Naadam is great all over the country. Each town and province has their own traditions and customs, so each Naadam is a little different. I wouldn’t say that Murun’s Naadam celebration is any better than another town’s celebration. I would say that Naadam is not to be missed, but which Naadam you choose is not as critical.
