This skill is passed from generation to generation and only wealthy people can afford it.

When you travel in Kyrgyzstan, you will see the beautiful berkut (golden eagles), which has the golden feathers at the back of its head. They are usually hunt hares, foxes and lynxes. It is important to note that, female birds are much bigger and can hunt even wolves. Their live span is about 40-50 years.
