Berkutchi festival in Mongolia

Golden Eagle festival “Berkutchi” is the incredibly bright and cathy sight which takes place in the western part of Mongolia every autumn. Hundreds of ‘berkutchi’ (eagle hunters) in national costumes get together for the contest. Participating in several types of competitions, they compete for the title of the best hunter of the year. Besides the festival, we will also go to the most beautiful lake and see unusual alpine landscapes of Mongolia.
It’s a comfortable tour for everyone: accommodation in ‘yurtas’ or tourist camps, food from our professional cook.
