Mongolian Eagle hunters in the spotlight: Golden Eagle Festival 2017

Where there’s timed eagle summoning, eagle huntresses, goat carcass tug-o-war from horseback, camel racing, couple horse racing (the man tries to escape from the woman’s whip), traditional Kazakh concert, and hordes of telephoto lenses — all in Bayan Olgii, the westernmost province of Mongolia, the Land of Eternal Blue Skies.
The Golden Eagle Festival 2017 took place on Sept. 30 to Oct. 1 in Olgii, the capital of Bayan-Olgii.
