Golden Eagle hunting

Guardians of ancient cultures.

In the north of Kyrgyzstan, there are masters of rare art – “MÜNÜSHKÖR” (Golden Eagle Hunter).

They keep birds of prey and teach them to hunt together. Seeing the ancient art of nomads with your own eyes and participating in a real hunt will betray an inexpressible feeling. You will feel the ancient spirit of nomads and see the unique harmonious relationship of birds of prey with humans.

An amazingly informative adventure tour “Two days with the birds of prey hunters”.

Everything you knew about birds of prey and the secrets of hunting with birds of prey will completely turn over in this one, in just one day.

You will feel incredible excitement and indescribable emotions while hunting game in real-time and in real conditions. During the day, we had five attempts in different locations on three foxes, two jackals, and several wild hares. However, successful hunting was only for one hare. Hunting for golden eagles is the most humane type of hunting when wild animals have a chance to escape, and the law of nature is fully in operation. The strongest, the bravest, the fastest, and the most perspicacious survives. There were several cases when the prey was just about caught, and it was able to free itself from the claws of the eagle at the decisive moment and went into the horizons, triumphant for salvation. Moreover, we stood and admitted defeat, but at the same time, we felt admiration and euphoria.

Season of the product tour: This adventure tour is able to offer from October to the end of April during the hunting season.
