What is “Hunting with Eagles”?
This tradition was brought to the Mongolian steppes by the Kazakhs, who are one of the largest ethnic minorities in Mongolia.
Local people call eagle hunters Berkutchi. Berkutchi is a man who hunts with eagles, most often with the largest – golden eagles. The skill of hunting a golden eagle is a true art and hard work. After all, you need not just get along with the bird and tame it, you must become one with it. Berkutchi has a special philosophy. They live in remote places hundreds of kilometers from civilization, carefully preserve their traditions and pass them on from generation to generation.
Golden eagle is a strong bird with a large wingspan, powerful beak and tenacious claws. The plumage of gold on its neck and nape gives this bird the name golden eagle.
Now there are only 250 to 300 golden eagle hunters left that transmit traditions through generations.
