Preparing For The Eagle Festival

In Mongolia, numerous festivals are held throughout the year. These include both the Sagsai and Ulgii Eagle Festivals that take place in Bayan Ulgii Province in western Mongolia.

This image is of one of the younger members of the Babiolat family who make their home in Sagsai – a district of Bayan Ulgii.

Photographer Massimo Rumi joined us and took this great image. It was the day before the Sagsai Festival (third weekend in September) and he was training his eagle. Very last minute but he was thoroughly enjoying demonstrating his skills to us.
