Ganga Lake Festival to commence


The Ganga Lake Festival, initiated in 2014 for the preservation of Ganga Lake ecosystem and local minor cultures, will be held from September 5 to 6 in Dariganga soum of Sukhbaatar Province.
The festival aims to raise awareness of ecosystems going extinct in Ganga Lake, improve tourism and protect unique cultures and ecosystem near the Ganga Lake. It will showcase the best of Dariganga cultures, history, traditions and lifestyles of Dariganga people.
As the main event, organizers are planning a natural environment and ecology program, which will showcase a famous swan gathering as well as gatherings of other migrating birds that stop by Ganga Lake before setting off to warmer destinations every year.
The second Ganga Lake Festival will give opportunities for visitors to see a nomadic exhibition, attend an academic meeting for Dariganga’s culture and history, a Dariganga Studies Book Fair, and watch local music performances dedicated to mountains and lakes, and their famous horse culture. There will be a tour around historical places in Dariganga soum.
The organizers stated that Ganga River Festival will be held every year during mid autumn and involve the whole of Dariganga region. They also highlighted that the festival will recover local customs and culture, protect natural heritages, and later become a major tourism brand of Mongolia.
The Ministry of Environment, Green Development and Tourism, Ministry of Education, Culture and Science, Mayor’s Office of Sukhbaatar Province, New Tourist Tours Company, and Mongolian Academy of Culture and Poetry are jointly organizing the festival.
