Mongolia’s Altai Mountains – Horse Trekking & the Golden Eagle Festival with captain Sarah Champagne.

Mongolia has always been on Sarah’s destination list.

As the least-densely populated independent country on the planet, Mongolia has vast swathes of nearly untouched wilderness and is a paradise for trekking and exploring.

Travelling by horse is the traditional mode of transportation and offers an unparalleled opportunity to interact with the region’s nature and people.

Inspired by the epic landscapes and rich culture of the Kazakh eagle hunters, Sarah chose to visit the remote Altai Mountains in the far west of Mongolia.

Her journey covered 300km by horseback and took her into the summer and winter residences of the nomadic people, past ancient petroglyphs, through remote valleys, and over steep mountain passes near the Siberian border.

Her trek finished with the Golden Eagle Festival, where eagle hunters gather each year to test the skill and training of their eagles and participate in traditional horse games.
