Why a Local Golden Eagle festival?
This Festival has up to 35-40 Kazakh Eagle Master participants and their magnificent Golden eagles. It will be organized in Altai town, home to many talented eagle hunters and Master eagle trainers.
Among the three Golden Eagle Festivals, this “Golden Eagle Hunters Festival of Altai” is the youngest but most enjoyed locally in Altai sum or town (5 000 inhabitants) in Mongolia. It is organized in collaboration with the local Eagle Hunters community and Nomadic Trails Adventure Travel company for the 5th time now in 2021.
This Golden Eagle Festival tour is perfect for travelers who enjoy a more local, smaller festival with fewer tourists. The festival itself is smaller in size than the other two festivals. On top of all the main tournaments of the Main Festival, it will also have unique, more equine games such as Horse archery, female horse rider competitions. These special tournaments are only held during this local festival.
A local Golden Eagle festival for sure will allow you a much more up-close experience and local feeling by walking in the crowds of locals than tourists with big cameras. Be a part of this colorful festival full of traditional handmade costumes of Kazakh and Mongolian tribes in the snow-capped mountainous scenery.
