Mongolia plans to hold its annual camel festival next month in the western province of Govi-Altai to attract tourists. This was announced by the local government in a statement on Friday.

Under the auspices of the Mongolian Ministry of Education, Culture, Science and Sports, the event will be held for the 12th year on November 25th and 26th in Altai, the capital city of the Govi-Altai province.

 

What Do They Hope For the Festival

Entitled “The Great Desert Camel Festival,” the camel festival aims to attract more domestic and foreign tourists. It hopes to pass on the camel culture to future generations and encourage herders to improve camel breeding and increase the animal’s population.

The festival will feature multiple activities, including camel racing, a herders’ conference, camel polo, and a trade fair featuring camel products.

According to the National Statistical Office of Mongolia, there were over 66.46 million livestock animals in the country at the end of 2018, of which 0.7 percent were camels.

Mongolia has been striving to develop its tourism sector by organizing various events to diversify its mining-dependent economy, setting a goal of receiving 1 million foreign tourists and earning 1 billion U.S. dollars from tourism in 2020.
