In the course of a tour in Kyrgyzstan cars rented it is possible to make a witness of eagle hunting as it is a very exciting activity. Before you start a tour travelled in Kyrgyzstan we would like to point out the history of this activity which takes rootes since 12-13th centuries. During these times the one who had a horse and an eagle were greatly respected. These people supplied with meat and fur whole villages. During tours in Kyrgyzstan you can make a notice of the idea that those who were doing eagle hunting were known as berkutchi. Now, starting to travel in Kyrgyzstan you can make a notice of amazing and breath-catching berkuts. These birds are of an extreme beauty. Birds live for 40-50 years and notions of how to become a berkutchi are going from generation to generation. Travelling in Kyrgyzstan you will see that this is a rather hard work which takes the necessity to catch a baby bird from the nest, to train and domesticate it. And after 20 years of being close to berkutchi an eagle is given free to the nature of the country. When they find the pair they stay with each other never to break up.
