Mongolia’s Golden Eagle Festival with Palani Mohan
Due to popular demand, award-winning photographer and author Palani Mohan has just been confirmed as host for the
Golden Eagle Festival Small Group Journey departing in October 2018.
One of the last travel frontiers, Mongolia is vast, remote and strikingly beautiful. Nomads still eke out a living on the steppe as they have for centuries passing down from generation to generation age-old practices of horsemanship, herding and hunting. On this rare visit we spend two days at the thrilling Golden Eagle Festival in the far west of the country where Kazakh horsemen demonstrate their skills with the prized golden eagle in fierce competition.
Your host, Palani Mohan, has photographed and documented in detail the Golden Eagle hunters, and he will be both an invaluable cultural attaché as well as an expert photographic instructor throughout your journey.
