On this exciting journey, you will be able to imagine yourself being a part of a camel caravan crisscrossing the mighty Gobi Desert. You will ride horses along with descendants of Chinggis and Khubilai Khaan on their home turf. And as a bonus will have a chance to witness the famed Golden Eagle festival in the farwestern province of Bayan Olgii. The Golden Eagle Festival is one of the most anticipated cultural events of local Kazakhs. Every year, both the eagle and the hunter prepare for not only the hunting season but to compete in the annual festival. Winning the games is a prestigious and milestone event in the life of an eagle hunter. Some of the participants come from as far as 250 kms away. Join us on this epic journey to experience the best of Mongolian Panoramas!
