World Nomad Games

View More Journeys

Ancient sports, incredible strength and patriotic showmanship. Channel your inner nomad and head out to the wilderness. Watch the World Nomad Games athletes take part in an array of fascinating ethnic games including horseback wrestling, or Er Enish, archery, huge birds of prey hunting. The most contentious sport might be Kok Boru (think polo but the ball is a headless goat)! If you`re not a games fan, dress up in stunning traditional nomadic outfits and explore the yurt villages, maybe participate in traditional dance and music performances or sampling culinary delights from mare’s milk and sheep’s cheese to other tasty morsels. This biennial celebration is not to be missed.
