Mongolia’s endless steppe and remote Altai Mountains can get the travel hyperbole flowing pretty quickly. Throw in an eagle festival (an eagle festival! In Mongolia! How exotic does that sound?) and prose is at a high risk of turning a deep shade of purple. Best leaving the explanation to images that speak for themselves. Take a look at Burn Magazine’s photos of the region’s golden eagle nomads – extraordinary snaps taken by John Delaney. They know how to look good for the camera don’t they?
