On October 02 till 07, team with 6 people traveled to Ulgii province to visit and attend in Golden Eagle Festival 2019. The Bayan Ulgii province is a home to the Kazakhs, a Muslim tribe that preserved their eagle hunt tradition till nowadays. The Kazakhs till this day still practice the ancient tradition of hunting with eagles. The men hunt with these massive birds of prey, which are caught and taken from their nest at a young age. The Kazakh men train them during the summer months and as the winter draws nearer the birds are starved to make them hungry for the hunt. The birds are kept and used for hunting to the age of about 15 and then released back into the wild. In 2019, the kazakhs is celebrating 20th Golden eagle festival event. And here is some photos.
