We are happy to see you travelling in Kyrgyzstan and suggest car rent services. Eagle hunting is widely known to be popular in Kyrgyzstan. People started to do eagle hunting in 12th and 13th centuries. It was the time when those who had eagles and horses were considered to be rather rich and prosperous. Those doing eagle hunting in Kyrgyzstan are known as berkutchi as they domesticate and train eagles. Berkutchi have always been of great respect long time ago in Kyrgyzstan. The reason to it is the fact they used to provide fur and meat for their families and whole villages. One of the ways to demonstrate all advantage and peculiarities of men, warriors, also was a hunting process with an eagle. But an interesting fact in tours is that not everyone could become the berkutchi. The knowledge of domestication and training of eagles was going from generation to generation, from father to son. The other peculiar fact is that rich people could afford being berkutchi, due to the idea of training process and domestication to be rather expensive. It is worth travelling in Kyrgyzstan and use car rent services for best travel tours!
