Master the art of hunting with eagles in Mongolia with Black Tomato
Journey to Mongolia’s wild west for an incredible and unique nomadic experience. You’ll stay in ger camps with local nomadic families in the Bayan-Olgiy region, a remote area that lies close to the border of Russia and Kazakhstan. The land is still untouched by mass tourism and honest to its cultural roots and traditions; hunting for food and fur with golden eagles are still very much alive in Bayan Olgiy. You’ll learn how to master the art of hunting with eagles in Mongolia on horseback, a thrilling, ancient practice that few get to experience.
You’ll arrive in Mongolia’s capital, Ulaanbaatar, and be met by your guide. Take the day to explore the city, and be sure to visit The Museum of National History.
Early the following morning you’ll be taking a flight to Ulgii, then driving east to Altantsogts, stopping at Oni mountain to see the nests where eagles lay their eggs in early March. At Altantsogts you’ll meet with your host for the next two nights: the Eagle Hunter, his family and his magnificent bird.
The Eagle Hunter will be your instructor in the nomadic way of life in this hostile environment. You’ll learning the unique skills and techniques of eagle hunting before embarking on a hunt. Keep your eyes peeled as the eagles soar to monumental heights before swooping down to catch rabbits or foxes.
