Eagle Hunting in Deluun valley


Riding out to the peak of the mountains each day, you will be introduced firsthand to the ancient custom of hunting with Golden Eagles.

Specially timed during the winter months, Khazaks, in their ancestral tradition, track small rabbits and foxes in the snow. In most cases, the hunters prefer to raise female eagles, which weigh up to one-third more than males, and have proven themselves as faithful and committed hunters.

Khazaks release the eagles into the wild at the age of about ten, while they still have half their lifespan remaining, in order to ensure preservation of the species.
