Local Golden Eagle Festival 2019

21-22 September 2019 (Actual date for Golden Eagle Festival)-

Among those three Golden Eagle Festivals, this “Nomadic Games” festival is the youngest but enjoyed locally in Altay town (3 000 inhabitants), Mongolia. It will be 3rd year activity, which organized by Nomadic Trails company with collaboration of local Eagle Hunters community, making it as an annual celebration for the future.

This festival is smaller size than others, by number of participants of Golden Eagle Hunters, about 35-40 of them will take a part of it. Also,  more activities such as horse archery and other games. We are pretty sure, this festival would allow you much more local feeling by walking in the local crowds than a tourists with big cameras.

Against all comers it is live tradition- Golden Eagle Festival. just as the winter hinting season is getting underway, golden eagle hunters gather from all over Bayan-Ulgii province (western Mongolia)
