Eagle Hunters, Naadam Games, and Shamans of Mongolia with Art Wolfe
July 6 - July 16
Known for its arid steppes, skilled nomadic horsemen and Genghis Khan, a visit to Mongolia feels like a trip back in time. At the annual Naadam Festival, contestants vie to be the victor in the centuries-old pursuits of wrestling, archery and horse-racing.
On this amazing adventure Art Wolfe will guide the group to photograph prehistoric wild horses as they roam the steppe, ride in the mountains with a Kazakh tribesman who hunt with golden eagles and has set up a special photo shoot with some of the local shaman.
