Mongolian eagle festival

Posted by rod - 31.10.2013

Mongolia is a fascinating country with lots of history and traditions. One of these traditions is the annual eagle festival deep within the Altai mountain range. The festival is quite an experience, the Kazakhs of Mongolia who have train their eagles to hunt for foxes and rabbits compete against each other during the festivities. Amongst the prizes to be won are for the fastest eagle and traditional Kazakh dress. Ahmed Zulkamal had the opportunity to experience the festival and took these amazing photos.
