Golden eagle festival tour #2

per person

There are two Eagle Festivals. The first is about two hours away from Ulgii in Sagsai soum (soum or town, the second smallest administrative unit in Mongolia) and takes place on the second weekend of September. The second is the Golden Eagle Festival, which is a bigger festival in the Bugat region held a few weeks later on the first weekend of October. Each festival will continue for about two days. We offer a program to tourists who come to Ulgii to visit the countryside, meet some of the families and stay with them for 2-3 days before or after an Eagle Festival in order to learn more about the daily life of eagle hunters.
