Mongolia Eagle Hunter Photography Workshop
For hundreds of years the Eagle Hunters in the Altai Mountains of Mongolia have captured and trained Golden Eagles. The eagles help them get food and they also protect the sheep from predators like wolves. It’s a remarkable culture and the people are very warm and welcoming. It is a place that few see, but it is also a place you’ll never forget.
We will travel to Ölgii province to meet the Eagle Hunters, their families, and their eagles. We’ll journey up into the mountains with them and watch as they exercise their birds. After several days of photographing this community, we then travel into the heart of the Gobi Desert to meet the traditional Bactrian camel herders. Bactrian camels are the lifeblood of the Gobi people—used for meat, milk, fur, and transportation. The ability of the camels to survive and thrive in arid conditions cemented their importance along the infamous Silk Road.
You will get a private tour of the history of Mongolia, a private dinner, and a concert filled with traditional Mongolian music. Between these two excursions, we will visit some of the monasteries and museums in Mongolia. We have even rented out an entire museum for our group.
This trip is fully customized based on our extensive experience in the country. You will have efficient and comfortable accommodations and our own private chefs outside of Ulaanbaatar. In Ulaanbaatar, it’s decadence and a spa pampering experience at one of the best 5* hotels in Mongolia!
