At the Golden Eagle Festival there are number of Eagle hunters gather and compete for 2 days and will have a really cool staff during the competitions. The Mongolian eagle hunters simply stand in the landing zone while using their unique call (and with chunk of meat on their hand) to persuade their Golden Eagle to swoop down from a mountain peak and land on their arm. Time, technique and flair are the main factors the judges look during the event.
There is a girl who started from 11-year- old following her father Ashker to become successful Eagle Huntress. She lives in the countryside, from herding family and she is so photogenetic.
The Altai Nomadic Games had a number of other events rather than eagle flights. Two of these events, Aigerem competed in. The Kiz-Kuar is an equestrian competition where she chases and catches a man on the horse in front of her solely to whip him. She showed her skilled rider, had no problem giving a solid whip-down to her competitor, much to the delight of the laughing crowd.
At the end of the festival, when they announce the winner first, Aigerem had placed third.
I am so proud of Aigerem, who placed in third place in the competition amongst all these men!
I first saw the teenager girl waited for her turn to compete in the event in front of hundreds of spectators. Another Superb Eagle Huntress, who followed her father, Talap.
The Mongolian eagle hunters simply stand in the medium sized landing zone while using their unique call (and a massive chunk of meat) to persuade their giant bird to swoop down from a mountain peak and land on their arm. Zamanbol began her call. And seemingly within seconds, her eagle swooped onto her outstretched arm as the gallery of onlookers exploded into a thunderous cheer, witnessing a perfect landing. She was no ordinary 13-year-old young woman!
Aisholpan Nurgaiv, the famous 13-year-old Eagle Huntress, who changed a male pursuit traditional and shocks everyone by winning the prestigious eagle-hunters’ competition held annually in the town of Ulgii, in north-western Mongolia.
