Ulaanbaatar/MONTSAME/. The Blue Pearl annual ice festival will be organized for the 21st year on March 2-5 in Khuvsgul aimag.

Aimed to promote winter tourism in Khuvsgul aimag, the festival is one of the oldest events being traditionally held every year in the country’s tourism industry.

People, who are interested in taking part in the festival, travel a total of 2,000 km on the Ulaanbaatar-Darkhan-Erdenet-Bulgan-Murun-Khatgal village-Khui Tolgoi route to get the destination. In recent years, the number of interested participants has increased dramatically, reaching up to 15 thousand people, and the festival’s programs are being enriched with more interesting events. The Blue Pearl festival features ice knuckle-bone shooting contest, bicycle and ice skate races, moto sports performance, sled dog race, tug of war, relay race, family contest, horse race, performance by the aimag’s musical drama theater, and some ritualistic activities.
