Naadam is a popular ancient Mongolian festival featuring a series of riding, wrestling and archery contests on the plains near the capital, Ulan Bator.

Women have recently started participating in archery and horse racing but not wrestling.

The festival has been visited by an increasing number of foreigners in recent years.
