After having our breakfast at the hotel, we will head to Ölgii on foot for a taste of the Mongolian culture where we will assist to the Eagle hunting festival During the first day of the festival, our cameras will be out of their bags! But do not focus on taking pictures only, let your eyes enjoy the best show in front of you! We will admire the first event of an eagle catching a fox skin, a camel race and Kazakh games of Tiyn Teru. We will experience with them the different challenges they go through... And for the night, we will stay at Ger Camp.

During the second day of the festival, we will jump out of the bed to have our breakfast and continue the adventure with the eagle head hunters. We will go through other challenges this day so stay tuned! The head hunters' speed, agility, and horse-riding skills will be tested. At night, we will go back to the Ger Camp carrying with us the best memories with starry eyes.


Day 4

After filling our stomachs with the delicious breakfast, we will spend the day with the eagle hunter who will teach his strategy for hunting. So ladies and gentlemen, keep in mind the hunting provides very little in the way of food for human consumption, but it is a tradition dating back 6,000 years. After this long day, we will have the chance to reflect on what we have been experiencing so far and spend the night at the eagle hunter Kazakh family.

After having our breakfast, we will move to Gurvan Tsenkher cave. Along those paths, we will be admiring the painted walls full of animals. Among those animals, there are Lions, elephants, argali sheep, ibexes, ostriches, antelopes, camels, as well as symbols...

After saying our good mornings and eating our breakfast, we will head to Bayankhongor which is located in the southwest of the country. It is one of the largest aimags. Then, we will have the chance to explore the city and a local museum. One thing is for sure, we won't get bored cause tonight we are going to camp.

Day 9

Your stomach is filled then let's go! Today we will explore KHONGOR SAND DUNES. They extend along the northern side of Sevrei and Zuulun mountain ranges and they are some of the largest and most impressive white dunes in Mongolia. Once we will climb and then slide down we will hear the amazing sound of the dunes which sounds like singing and that's why it is called also ( Duut Makhan ) which means SINGING DUNES. Along those paths, we could experience Camel riding. Time to rest and reflect! That's why we will go back nearby the canyon and spend the night at GER...

After a long night of sleep and a feeling of what's coming next, we thought of exploring the ice canyon after moving to YOL VALLEY. The Fauna that will cross our paths will blow our minds. There are mountain sheep, goats, leopards, black-tailed marten of cliffs, lynx, and wildcats. SO GET READY! It's time to rest! That's why we are going to the GER camp nearby canyon to spend the night! *Day 11: This journey is almost over but no worries we still have a surprise :)) We will move to Dundgovi and visit the scarp of Tsagaan.
