Eagle hunters experience

Experience eagle hunting with the Kazakhs in Bayan-Ulgii province. The Kazakhs have unique tradition of hunting with trained Golden eagles. When spotting prey, a hunter takes the hood off an eagle and lets it fly. It's amazing to see how the golden eagle spreads its wings and flies freely, as if it was never at a human's mercy. Its' natural instincts are revived, and it forges ahead. The Eagle Huntress, a teenage girl Aisholpan is a household name in Mongolia today. As the real hunting is only available in the winter time, this tour offers travellers to experience it from July to Oct as an add-on to any tours. So, instead of real hunting, hunters will use rabbit skin or piece of meat to train their eagles.

Enjoy extraordinary eagle hunting experience within 4 days

Mongolia is home to a diverse range of ethnic groups, and each of them retains a unique cultural experience and traditions. One of the most interesting ethnic groups is the Kazakhs – who practice the tradition of hunting with trained Golden Eagles. This age-old tradition has been passed from generation to generation until today in the stunningly beautiful Altai Mountains of western Mongolia. During the colder months of the year, the skilled Kazakh hunters and their mighty trained Golden eagles hunt rabbit, fox, and wolf. And the way the Kazakh hunters train their eagles is fantastic – many admire the bond between the master and the eagle. This 4-day tour includes 3 days of extraordinary eagle hunting experience in Sagsai village, Bayan-Ulgii province of western Mongolia will allow travellers to learn their hunting tradition without real hunting and enjoy a homestay at a Kazakh family and witness their timeless culture and hospitality. Suitable for an add-on to any tours of Premium Travel Mongolia tours.
