Travel through the spectacular Silberian Altai Mountains and spend two nights with an eagle hunter family before attending the annual Mongolian Eagle Festival. Here, 400 eagle hunters enter the valley on horseback with their golden eagles. Various events, games and competitions show the skills of birds and their handlers, while hunters are judged on their costumes, horsemanship and ability to control the birds. Celebrating and keeping alive the fascinating local traditions, the festival makes for fantastic photo opportunities.
