This special tour takes you to discover a different world, the Kazakhs of Bayan Olgii, which is the only Kazakh province in the Mongolia. About 1750 the Kazakhs moved from Kazakhstan to China, Then 1844 the Kazakh leaders Kobesh and Jilhishi lead 500 families from China to a new home in to western Mongolia.
The Mongolian Kazakhs are the only group among the Kazakh who maintain their pure traditional culture and language.
One of their old traditions for which they are famous is the hunt with Golden Eagles, with which they hunt foxes, rabbits and even wolves!
Kazakh women are also famous for their traditional embroidery. They are celebrated for colorful needlework used to decorate the inside of the Gers (nomadic tents).
This is a only chance to stay among regular nomadic families and to share, and learn about their unique lifestyle.
