This is an unique tour that combines horse trek/riding with Eagle Festival, which will be held in Olgii City in Mongolia. Eagle festival is a great opportunity to explore, experience and feel ancient Kazakh tradition of hunting with an Golden Eagle.

Hunting with a Golden Eagle is a traditional ancient sport and art practiced in Central Asia, particularly in Kazakhstan, Mongolia, and Kyrgyzstan. Hunting with a Golden Eagle is an unique art and knowledge that would transform from master to student or father to son. Eagles are trained mainly to hunt foxes, rabbits even wolves.
