Most of us consider winter a great time to stay inside with a good book. Yet the winter months offer great outdoor events, including many fun and unique festivals.
The Ice Festival at Lake Khövsgöl, March 2, 3
To get to this festival, you’ll need to travel to “the ends of the earth!” The remote region located in Mongolia is the perfect setting for cold-weather activities.
Lake Khövsgöl, called the Blue Pearl of Mongolia, freezes up to 1.5 meters deep. Frost-covered trees and mountains circle the lake, creating a winter playground.
Each year local residents have a two-day celebration. Wandering reindeer herders also join the fun, sharing their traditional songs and dances.
The activities take place on the frozen lake and include sled races, skating and much more. There’s an ice tower with a slide and an ice house with hot and cold drinks.
Visitors are always surprised to see how much weight the lake can hold. People, horses and even bonfires can be found on Lake Khövsgöl!
