Tour Calendar

One of the Mongolian ethnic groups is the Muslim Kazakhs of Turkic origin. The Kazakhs have the tradition of hunting with trained Golden Eagles that has been passed generation to generation. One of the last true wilderness areas of Asia, the stunning beauty of the magnificent Altai Mountains will be the backdrop for this extraordinary Eagle Hunting tour. A highlight of any trip to this region is interacting with local Kazakhs and learning about their unique culture. The skilled and trained Golden eagles hunt rabbit, fox and wolf and the way the Kazakh hunters train the eagles is fantastic! The Golden Eagle is one of twelve species of large predominantly dark-coloured eagles in the genius Aquila found worldwide; a large brown bird of prey, it has a wingspan averaging over 2 m and up to 1m in body length. Adult Golden Eagles range widely in size across their range. The largest races comprise the largest eagles of the genus Aquila. Length may vary from 66 to 100 cm, wingspan can range from 150 to 240 cm, and weight is from 2.5 to 7 kg. Historically, nomadic Kazakhs depended on Golden Eagles for hunting.
