Tour Planning

Mongolia Tour Planing

All of our Taimen Tours in Mongolia are a full 14 days, - with 12 days of pure fishing at the chosen river. Our key to success for more than 20 years now, is to give our fishing guests sufficient time to fish and learn at the Taimen river, which is often completely new to the traveling sportsman, and the productive fishing and casting techniques introduced by our experienced river guides and fly-fishing masters, may not be yet familiar to the newcomer in Mongolia.

Therefore, the more time our esteemed fishing guest can spend at the Mongolian river and learn from our European guides, the better chances for him naturally, to land more and bigger Taimen.

Further, Mongolia is a vast country, and the protected rivers in National Parks with a healthy population of Taimen today, are to be found only in remote areas at the gates to the wilderness. The adventurous sportsman will spend one or two days on the trek with us, before he can commence productive fishing at our lodges, camps, or wilderness encampments in the Mongolian outback.

Serious Taimen fishing is, and always will be, a quest for the grand fish of the wilderness. With many good Lenok Trout and beautiful Grayling along the way, - but it is not just an average eco-ethno trip or an easy walk down the river bank.

However, the duration of stay at the Taimen Camp may be altered for the returning client, or for the requirements of the businessman, who is always short of time. A bespoken Taimen Tour may be customized and cut-down to 8 - 10 days in total, with 6 - 8 days of pure Taimen fishing, in individual cases.


Taimen Tour - A brief Itinerary

Your Taimen Tour begins after the domestic flight from the Mongolian capital Ulaan Baatar, - whether to Bayan Ulgiy in the Altai Mountains in the West, - or to Moron in the Hovsgol Province in the North, - or to Choybalsan in Manchuria in the East of the vast country, depending on the specialized fishing tour and Taimen camp You have chosen.

After You have been collected at Ghengis Khaan International Airport by the female colleagues from our Ulaan Baatar office, You will be driven to Your hotel in the city center for overnight at the capital,  - or You will be transferred directly to Your domestic flight the same morning without delay, depending on Your arrival time and the international airline You have chosen. - Aeroflot via Moscow arrives in UB very early in the morning, and the connection to the domestic flight in Mongolia works very well, whilst China Air via Beijing arrives late in the morning, making overnight in UB necessary, - to name just an example.

You will meet Your fishing guide at the airstrip of the provincial town. The European guide and his native driver will be taking You and Your fishing equipment to the Taimen Camp, which is usually an off-road drive of 6 - 10 hours across scenic and picturesque backcountry, as all of our fishing camps are situated at the gates to the Mongolian / Siberian wilderness in the Borders.

The weight limit of baggage is just 15 kg at one domestic airline, and 20 kg at the other, and they charge between 5,- to 7,- USD per kilo of excess baggage, and they usually demand cash payment in local currency Mongolian Tugrik. - The exchange of a smaller cash amount, say 200,- to 300,- USD to local currency, is therefore advisable on Your arrival at Ghengis Khaan Airport, - to hold some pocket money for overweight charges, to buy crafts and cashmere products for Your loved ones at home, for shopping in the city, for the cool beer on the long and dusty trail to fishing camp ...


Transport to Taimen Camp

We are using Toyota Land Cruisers for transportation of just a few fishermen, but for a full group of 6 sportsmen we prefer the robust and time-proven Russian UVAZ "Furgon" 4-wheel-bus, with plenty of loading space for all equipment and baggage. - You will arrive at fishing camp in the evening and commence fishing next morning, after You have taken a good rest, a fine dinner, and a warm shower at Your new home for the next 12 days of fishing ...

The return trip from camp follows the same schedule. You will be leaving camp early in the morning, to catch the domestic flight back to the capital in the afternoon, or to stay in the hotel of the provincial town overnight, - depending on the current domestic airline connection in the morning or in the afternoon. The domestic flights are often delayed or cancelled because of quickly changing weather conditions, and therefore we are working with all 3 domestic Mongolian airlines, in order to have more options for the quick and smooth transfers of our clients to the fishing camps and back.

You will be accompanied by Your English, German, Spanish, and Russian speaking fishing and tour guide at all times.
