From the 13th to the 23rd March 2019 I spent my time in the vast landscapes of Mongolia. One of the most sparsely populated countries on the planet.
Due to unforeseen weather conditions the group I was in spent a night in Hustai National Park with a local family. But it was definitely a beautiful place to visit and it’s where the vlog starts.
One night later and we took our flight to Ulgii in Western Mongolia. More Kazakhstan than Mongolia it is where the high mountains are and what people typically think of when it comes to Mongolia.
We stayed on the floor of various eagle hunters whilst also partaking the Eagle Festival for Nauryz which is a celebration for the New Year.
And if you like what you see then I’m teaming up with Eternal Landscapes (www.eternal-landscapes.co.uk) to run a photography tour in the Altai where we’ll be staying with various eagle hunters and their families.
