New Year’s First Sunrise tour
Mongolians have a tradition that on the first morning of the New Year, very early in the day they climb the nearest sacred hill or mountain, offering dishes and burning juniper and incense sticks to welcome the New Year. This Mongolian tradition is rather similar to the Japanese custom, where people admire the sunrise and predict features of the forthcoming year. For creative personalities it is a rare chance to capture on film fantastic images, with the snowflakes sparkling like diamonds scattered over the snow white steppe. We offer you the chance to watch the sunrise on the first morning of New Year in Mongolia and are sure that you will enjoy horse riding throughout the wide steppe on a winter morning in our country.
