I had been on a journey to the border between Kazakstan and Mongolia, among the Altai's mountain, in search of a certainer person.The honorable "Burgedchins" "Burgedchin" or "Eagle Hunters" are pride hunters who inherit their hunts with their Golden eagle for more than 250 years. At -40 Celsius degree, only strong survives. This became the bond between hunters and his predators. With Kazakhs superb hunting skills experience altogether with an expert natural predator, the friendship is born.
