Accommodation

At the beginning of tour arrival to main hunting camp which is equipped with V.I.P. carriages – kitchen, dining area, sauna, and other. During a hunt, the hunter is staying up in the mountains in a tented camp. When the hunt is over, the hunter comes back to the main hunting camp.

Hunting conditions

Good physical condition of hunter is mandatory. The air is generally very dry and rare. Hunter will need a good hat and a sleeping bag to keep warm and dry, as you will stay at fly camp for a few days. During hunt we use horses for transportation.
Spot and stalk hunting is the preferred method of hunting, it allows us to judge the animals with spotting scopes before making the final stalk.
