Mongolia is a land of extremes, from the common -40°C in the winter to 40°C in the summer, all life in Mongolia shows immense resilience in order to simply survive. Wanting to meet the Mongols who live on the brink of this extremity, I made my way to Altai Tavan Bogd National Park where Mongolians live lives that closely resemble their ancestors dating back thousands of years. Here is where I met the Eagle Hunter. While between us we could only communicate hellos and goodbyes, as he held his eagle, I got a glimpse into a culture and set of traditions completely different from that of my own and was able to observe the tremendous respect that he showed for his golden eagle and Mongolian culture.
