ARCHERY

The Mongols have used the bows and arrows since the time immemorial as a sport between tribes, weapon for battles and equipment for hunting and are world renowned fine archers.


Nowadays archery is one of the 3 traditional sports of the Great Naadam Festival, namely, wrestling, horse racing and archery. Our archery target is the bull hide stretched in wooden frame in traditional ways and is in the south eastern part of the camp yard.


Standard shooting distance for the Mongols is 75m for men, 60m for women and 45m for children aged fewer than 14. But it's better for you to choose the convenient distance for yourself. The rental staff will aid you with instructions of how to shoot with bow and arrow.
