Peaks of Altai Mountain
Tour Mongolia and discover two of the most fascinating regions, the Altai Mountains of Western Mongolia, where Kazakh hunters celebrate their traditional culture and magnificent golden eagles, and the diverse ecosystems of the Gobi Desert.
Golden Eagles have been used in the everyday lifestyle of nomadic Kazakhs for millennia for the purposes of hunting. Each year, the region’s Kazakh hunters attend the annual Golden Eagle Festival with their golden eagles, entering them in competitions testing speed, agility, and accuracy. Ceremonies, dance performances, a parade in the provincial capital’s city square, and a Kazakh play are held in honor of the hunters and their eagles. This authentic Kazakh experience is a highlight of any visit to Mongolia.
Continuing the Mongolian expedition in the vast and dramatic Gobi, explore an incredible array of unforgettable landscapes, including the sand dunes of Hongoryn Els and the deep desert valley of Yol Valley National Park. Visit the Flaming Cliffs, the legendary site where the first nest of dinosaur eggs was discovered, and Tugrugyn Shiree, where paleontologists unearthed the “Fighting Dinosaurs” fossil.
