You’re probably wondering what’s special about this pile of rocks with a horse skull next it. Well in Mongolia these rock piles are known as ovoos. They aren’t used like cairns which are meant to be used to find one’s way when lost. The Mongols as nomads are highly connected to nature and the land. Instead these ovoos are meant to mark places of spiritual importance for Mongols. Often times these markers are used by shamans who come and perform spiritual rituals

Eagle hunting is called Salburuun here in Kyrgyzstan and is still an active sport.
The eagles are trained in hunting and are kept until the age of 20 when they are released back into the wild and can live up to 60 years old.
This one weighed 6kg so it's more effort than it looks holding it on your arm for more than a minute or so! Could Max pass as a Kyrgyz eagle hunter? (Swipe to see his attempt)

Dreams do come true! In Mongolia looking for Golden Eagles. Some nests are on the ground on slopes and you can just walk onto them.

Genghis a Kazakh Eagle Hunter proudly shows off his bird. This eagle is only 2 years old so quite young but is still learning to hunt. In order to teach her to hunt, a young wolf will be used to teach her. Unfortunately, the wolf usually doesn’t survive the Golden Eagle Festival that is held later in the month.

Normally fox and rabbits are hunted by the eagles as the nomads depend on the meat for survival and the furs for trade. Once the eagle reaches the age of 12, they are released back into nature as part of Kazakh/Mongolian custom. The eagles can live to 30 years+ and weigh up to 30-40 lbs!

Mighty mighty bird! 'Tunuc' the golden eagle 🦅.. We went out with one of the eagle hunters in town. Maybe when you don't know what to expect it only gets better because these birds left me in awe for sure. She just got a rabbit and was excited as f*ck... •

Mongolians are the kings of speeches. We think the speech may have been invented here, and it’s compulsory to drink a shot of vodka before standing up and saying a few words. It’s best not to overthink it, but to just speak straight from the heart. The vodka helps with that. Here I am with the eagle hunters of western Mongolia at their annual September Golden Eagle Festival, thanking them for letting us into their world, and for welcoming the 20+ film crews we’ve worked with who have spent time with them filming their unique and special way of life. They are some of the kindest, funniest, most generous and hospitable people I have ever met. And then they go out on their horses with a massive golden eagle perched on their arm to play in the mountains. Legends. #mongolia #eaglehunter @panoramicjourneys
