The cry of the eagle

Tour 431

A trip in autumn to the eagle hunters in Altai Mountains. Eagle hunting in Altai Mountains, take part in an unforgettable trip and join us for the "Golden Eagle Festival" in the Altai Mountains in western Mongolia. "Under the moon", would be a textual translation for the word Altai and that is a fitting description for this unique landscape. Bright blue sky, crystal clear rivers and a landscape colored golden yellow in autumn. Simply pure nature. In the northwest of Mongolia, lives the minority of the Kazakhs, who have preserved their traditions over the years. The annual hunting season in autumn is opened with the big traditional eagle festival. In the warm summer it is impossible to hunt with the eagle.

To the celebration, on the first weekend in October, the eagle hunters come together every year in the west of Mongolia to their probably unique eagle celebration, in order to determine in a competition the best eagles. In the disciplines speed, agility and accuracy, the eagles compete against each other to determine the best eagle. The festival is accompanied by folklore performances. In addition to the eagle competitions, we can witness a number of other competitions and events related to the festival. The Golden Eagle Festival is a very special experience, probably not for the faint of heart, but it gives the guest a deep insight into the cultural life of the Altai people.
