Mongolia Festival Golden Eagle

Join us for the annual Golden Eagle Festival in beautiful Bayan-Olgii province of Mongolia. Every year, many brave Kazakhs participate with their specially trained Golden Eagles in various competitions to prize the best among them. This fantastic festival celebrating the Kazakhs’ honored Golden Eagle practice is also a celebration of Kazakh traditional heritage. In order to maintain the event as a festival for the Kazakhs themselves, attendance is limited. The highlight of this fantastic trip is interacting with the Kazakhs and other ethnic groups and living with them for a couple of days to take part in the eagle training and get to know about the unique Kazakh culture.
