Package Overview

Ninety percent of the population of the Bayan-Ulgii province are Kazakhs. They have lived in this area for more than 160 years. Mongolian Kazakhs have preserved their native language and culture in the modern world very well. The tradition of eagle hunting, is believed to have been developed in central Asia more than 1800 years ago. Kazakhs trap the eagles when they are eaglets and train them to be hunters, by building an emotional bond between the hunter and the eagles. Today in Mongolia there are about 200 Eagle hunters in total with their eagles. The Sagsai region of the Bayan-Ulgii province is considered to have the majority of these Eagle hunters. Eagle usually hunt most wild animals in Mongolia, including the native red foxes. As an initiative of the local population the Sagsai region began to celebrate the Eagle hunting culture with a festival a decade ago. During the Eagle Festival, hunters and the their eagles compete against each other in varius hunting skills competitions, but also, they are judged by their traditional attire and the equipment of the eagles and the horses they use to hunt. The festival also includes horse and camel races, in which mostly young boys compete. In addition to this, during the festival local residents sell handmade crafts to the tourists who attend the event. This holiday is very important for supporting the family economy of people in this region, especially for the local nomadic shepherd families who have the opportunity to increase their income. The Altai Eagle Festival is organized every year on the second weekend of September.International flights
