_74151933_82 A 13-year-old eagle huntress in Mongolia, BBC

13-year-old Ashol-Pan is only known golden eagle huntress in the world. Among the Kazakh people of the Altai mountain range in western Mongolia, hunting with golden eagles has been a way of life for thousands of years and boys begin to learn how to hunt for foxes and hares with the birds starring around age 13. Ashol-Pan, the daughter of celebrated hunter Han Gohadok, is the only known female to be trained in the tradition.

Ashol-Pan’s eldest brother was going to be trained to take on the family’s hunting duties but, after he was drafted into the army, Ashol-Pan expressed interest in carrying on the tradition and is now an apprentice hunter. The Kazakhs are the only people that hunt with Asian Golden Eagles, and today there are around 400 practicing falconers.

Photographer Asher Svidensky recently traveled through the Altai mountains and captured an incredible series of photos of Ashol-Pan and her eagle. He also took photos of several boys being trained and recalled: “To see [Ashol-Pan] with the eagle was amazing. She was a lot more comfortable with it, a lot more powerful with it and a lot more at ease with it.”
