    FROM 27th of February to 2nd of March
    4 days/ Group size 4 pax 650$ per person/

    About that days:
    Thickness of the ice in February: 200-250 cm
    Average daily temperature in February -10-15°C
    Average temperature at night: -25°C

    This is the best way to see the winter Lake Khovsgol.
    The ice festival is held annually after Tsagaan Sar (The Mongolian new year according by lunar calendar) some time in February somewhere along the western shores of Lake Khovsgol. From May to November, the lake is normally a magnificent mass of water, majestically stretching 134 kms from the Russian border down to Khatgal and 40 kms at its widest part. To experience it as a sheer plate of ice is stunning and remarkable….. not to mention slightly eerie at times! The festival is attended mostly by Mongolians who live in the area to break the monotony of winter. There is a constant array of colourful deels (local costume), excited faces, and greeting styles that have been practiced and passed down the generations in Mongolia for centuries. Ice sumo, horse sledge racing, ice skating and driving competitions are all part of this colourful event.
