With four weeks to go, the 2013 Genghis Khan Festival has reached this year’s maximum participation limit and the online registration system will be closed today. People can still contact us and put their names on the waiting list, as a few more spots will become available as of next week 15 June.

Nordic Ways is very happy to witness a boom in registrations for the second year in succession. We have decided to impose a maximum number of 750 to warrant the quality experience we aspire every single participant to have during the three days of the Festival. Xiwuqi is a town in the grasslands and offers a fair number of accomodation options, but these are not unlimited. As such, we also advise everyone who has not arranged his hotel or transport yet to do so as soon as possible. Our bus services from Beijing remain open for booking now. Check them out in our Travel section. In addition, people without a package deal who wish to take our airport shuttle service from Xiinhot to Xiwuqi are likewise advised to book asap.

Any logistical queries can be addressed to Ms Kate Liu ( .

Closing the registration system now is necessary to consolidate the start list. A number of places will guaranteed become available by the end of next week so please do not hesitate to contact us and add your name on the waiting list, please send an email to , providing the following information

Finally, we wish to express our sincere gratitude to everyone for making the 2013 Genghis Khan Festival the biggest in its 7-year-long history!
