Join us for the annual winter Golden Eagle Festival for 2015, held by local Kazakhs who are traveling from western Mongolia. The tradition of hunting with eagles goes back thousands of years in central Asia; we will join with the Golden Eagle trainers during a day and learn the secrets of taming these enormous birds, as well as about the traditions of the Kazakh minority in Mongolia.
When I was a boy of twelve, I met a group of fierce-looking Mongol horsemen, dressed in sheepskins and armed to the teeth, clatter by on piston-ponies, at their head a nasty-looking character carrying a falcon on his fist. One day I told my self, I will carry a bird like that. By Frank Illingworth.
A day Golden Eagle Festival:
We will pick up you from your hotel in the morning and drive to the area where Eagle Festival will be held. At 10.00am the opening ceremony commences, as the participants join the parade on horse ride with their eagles. Then festival begins with each Kazakh displaying his hunting outfit and accessories. The Golden eagles will be released from a cliff and their owner will stand below and signal for them to land upon their arm, as they do during hunting. Then eagles will be released from a cliff to attack fox skins that will be dragged by their owner on horseback. Drive back to Ulaanbaatar. L
