Mongolia, is known as the “Land of the Blue Skies” and is one of the last few places on the planet where nomadic life is still a living tradition.
The Golden Eagle Festival (Бүргэдийн наадам/ бүркіт той), is an annual traditional event in Western Mongolia. The Kazakh eagle hunters (Burkitshi) celebrate their heritage and compete to catch small animals superbly trained golden eagles. Prizes are awarded for speed, agility and accuracy and for the best traditional Kazakh dress.
My wife and I have been around the world and consider ourselves seasoned travelers, but both of us shed a few tears at the airport departing this charmed country [and our guide]. I’m still struggling to articulate what a momentous experience this was for us, but suffice it to say that I will never forget my time in Bhutan.
