The trip as a whole was fantastic and the Eagle Hunting Festival was the highlights. Perfect, we liked being here. The hospitality of the people, the trip itself was magnificent and fantastic. We had a very caring and professional and friendly guide Puujee. He was very attending full for our needs.

Stefan Max, Marcel Weber, Susanne Nelskamp, Netherlands

The whole trek on horseback was unforgettable. The whole lake might have been the most impressive and memorable sight. I enjoyed the whole trip immensely and will remember is for a long time. I also enjoyed the company of the guide, local guide, driver and cook very much. We would have liked it better if the trek on horseback had been the grand final of the tour at the end, since it was the highlight. The four days of driving around were nice but sort of our climax. If when we come back to Mongolia we will gladly travel with them again. Read more
