Welcome to Tolbo

The tiny settlement of Tolbo (Толбо), 14km past the eastern edge of the lake and 3km off the main track, is a dusty strip of Kazakh houses and a single shop.

Tolbo sum (district) – along with Delüün sum to the south – is famous for its eagle-hunters (28 of them live here), and this is a good place to meet them. Craggy escarpments to the south are dotted with vertiginous nests that are plundered by Tolbo Kazakhs for their eaglets.
