A unique culture experience in Western Mongolia

Mongolia is a 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 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 extraordinary Eagle Hunting Experience will also allow travellers to enjoy a homestay at a Kazakh family and witness their timeless culture and hospitality.

The Golden Eagle is one of twelve species of large predominantly dark-coloured eagles in the genius Aquila found worldwide; a large brown bird of prey, it has a wingspan averaging over 2m and up to 1m in body length. Adult Golden Eagles range widely in size across their range: length may vary from 66 to 100 cm, wingspan can range from 150 to 240 cm, and weight is from 2.5 to 7 kg. Historically, nomadic Kazakhs depended on Golden Eagles for hunting besides animal husbandry.
