Golden Eagle Festival

TOUR DATE : OCTOBER 1-7 , 2025

Experience The Golden Eagle Festival

Join us for the Annual Golden Eagle Festival in Mongolia’s Bayan-Ulgii Province! Each year, Kazakh hunters from near and far attend the festival for competitions showcasing the speed, agility, and accuracy of their magnificent hunting eagles. Historically, nomadic Kazakhs have relied on golden eagles for hunting.

Jalsa Urubshurow, Founder and CEO of Nomadic Expeditions, co-founded the Golden Eagle Festival to safeguard this extraordinary cultural heritage from extinction and foster its revival within the local community. Over the past two decades, this unique tradition has experienced a remarkable resurgence, with over 300 eagle hunters now actively practicing the art of golden eagle falconry. In 2010, UNESCO recognized golden eagle falconry as an Intangible Cultural Heritage of Humanity.

All proceeds from the festival’s ticket sales support the Kazakh Falconry Association, a community-focused organization dedicated to preserving cultural traditions, supporting the local community, and assisting eagle hunters.
