Short description

This fishing adventure allows you to discover the wild rivers of northwestern Mongolia, under the expert guidance of our expedition leader, who will take you to the best fishing spots in Mongolia’s northernmost province, which shares a border with Siberia Russia to the north.

We will spend the day fishing in the river, surrounded by impressive snowy peaks. This valley is a paradise for bird watchers because of the number of lakes (more than 300). This small and slow-flowing river is also rich in graylings, lenoks, as well as surprisingly large taimen.

The taimen is known as the ‘giant trout of Asia,’ and can grow up to 6 feet! Get creative making those flies – Taimen has been known to eat rats and ground squirrels!
