Naadam Deel Festival

Welcome to Mongolia

This will be mainly photography from the Deel Festival. This event was started in 2008 and is held annually at the conclusion of Naadam. People enter the parade in their traditional dress representing their tribe or clan from different provinces of Mongolia. Also the nine different districts of the capital city of Ulaan Baatar march in the parade with their own theme and traditional dress.

What clan is this? They are models working for a company that makes fancy deels.

Goodbye from our King and Queen - We hope you enjoyed the extraordinary sights from Mongolia. We did.

  1. The photos are beautiful- very bright and colorful. I'm wondering like you- when do you start work? Seems like quite the adventure so far.
