The trip begins and ends in Mongolia’s capital city, Ulaanbaatar (UB). Upon arrival, an MRO guide and driver will meet you at the airport and take care of all transfers.
Unless you have selected a combination trip. In this case, you’ll already have been on the river for six days!
After your first evening in UB, the group flies early in the morning to the river on a chartered Cessna Caravan. You will land near the river where the guides and boats will be waiting. For the next seven days, you will float and fish between a string of very well appointed tipi and ger camps. On the eighth day, you will have a full-day to wade-walk prime taimen waters. At the end of the week’s fishing, you will drive over a beautiful mountain pass to board the charter flight for the ninety-minute plus return flight to UB. An afternoon and evening in UB and the next day’s flight back home or to the next adventure.
All anglers on this trip fish from USA manufactured ClackaCraft drift boats. It’s quite an experience standing tall in a drift boat while sight casting to a feeding taimen.
Each day’s float covers 15 – 25 kilometers (10 – 15 miles) of water, with a midday break for a shore lunch.
Only international anglers holding a fishing permit allocated through Mongolia River Outfitters may legally fish this river. Our exclusive management agreement requires catch-and-release, fly-fishing only with single, barbless hooks.
Ger and Tipi Camps
On the remote lower river trips, all of our gear is transported by a fleet of gear boats every day. The camps are a mix of Tipi Camps and Ger Camps. The first part of the trip in tipi camps, the last few days in ger camps. Each tipi camp has a large wall tent for dining with a wood stove; very comfortable tipi-tents appointed with comfortable cots, blankets, and wool carpets; and, hot showers. The ger camps have a large dining ger. The sleeping gers feature comfortable cots, linens, and wood-burning stoves.
