For thousands of years ethnic Kazakhs in Bayan Olgii, Western Mongolia, have partaken in the ancient sport of eagle hunting on the steppes of Central Asia. The intense foreign interest in eagle hunting has further prompted ethnic Kazakhs to proudly grasp this unique aspect of their heritage, but has also provoked controversy between "real" eagle hunters and eagle hunters who train eagles exclusively for the festivals. This is Isen whose family has a long history of hunting with eagles.

#Funfact... Nomad children have no such 'luxuries' and instead, they enjoy the natural things in life. Everyone in the family has to chip in. Some say Nomad kids learn to ride a horse before they can walk!

The Golden Eagle festival is held over two days every year, celebrating age-old Kazakh traditions. The eagles are judged for their speed and agility, the birds are released from a cliff and swoop down to land on the arms of the hunters below.

Ulaanbaatar is the capital of Mongolia with a population of around 1.3 million, almost half of the country's total population! Much of the modern architecture of Ulaanbaatar started to take shape in the 20th century with the influence of Russian architecture. Travelers who take the time to explore the city will discover hospitable and warm-hearted people.
