Travel in Mongolia through unspoiled landscapes, exploring some of the most remarkable and untouched parts of the globe. Take part in the Golden Eagle Festival in Mongolia’s beautiful western province. This colorful event includes many great traditions and customs of the Kazakh people of Western Mongolia. Watch the royal Golden Eagles fly through the sky in an unforgettable aerial ballet. In order to maintain the event as a festival for the local people and offer our clients a truly intimate experience, our group size is limited to a maximum of eight travelers. You will interact with the Kazakhs and live with them for several days as you watch the eagle training and discover the culture of Kazakh people. You will also live for two days with nomad families of Uriankhai ethnic group whose culture is very different from the Kazakhs, observing and getting involved in some of their daily activities. This region of Mongolia is one of the few places remaining in the world where one can immerse in a culture completely unaffected by tourism and development.
