Kazakh Nomad

The wild and remote western edge of Mongolia is home to a group of Kazakh nomads. In the rugged mountains, the major part of their nomadic life is herding. As isolated from the modern world, Kazakh’s traditional hunting using golden eagles persists. The knowledge of falconry is kept in the family and passed from generation to generation.
