The 19th Inner Mongolia Ice and Snow Nadam successfully kicked off in the city of Hulunbuir in North China's Inner Mongolia autonomous region on Dec 22.
At the opening ceremony of the event, more than 200 snowmobiles and motorcycles presented exciting performances to create a festive atmosphere.
As a key winter tourism event in the region in 2022, this year's nadam is centered around the four themes of "watching competitions, enjoying the scenery, having fun, and tasting culture".
The event focuses on displaying traditional sports, culture, art, food and other new forms of tourism, aiming to promote the normalization, branding and product development of local winter tourism.

-- as well as camel racing, and Ewenki's reindeer sleigh rides.
They will also have access to winter activities such as skating, skiing, snowmobile riding, and cold pole marathons.
The Yakeshi Cross-Country Ski Race, the Zhalantun Ice and Snow Carnival Event Series, the Ninth Genhe Cold Pole Marathon and other activities will also be launched from Dec 23rd to 25th.
