Fishing in Central Mongolia Tour

14 days from $1890

In this trip, you will travel in Mongolia’s large number of lakes and rivers, and its sparse population, which generally prefers meat, the fish are just waiting to be caught. There are more than 70 species of fish in Mongolia such as taimen, grayling, lennock, sturgeon, pike, and perch. The fishing can be practiced anywhere: Khagiin Khar lake, the three nearby rivers, Orkhon river, and lake Ugii are noted for the lucky trophies. Fly-fishing in Mongolia is unique. While the native taimen, which can top five feet in length, has become the ultimate sport fisherman’s catch, many prefer the action and the thrills of fishing for acrobatic grayling and lennock in Mongolia’s rivers.

Highlights

  • Majestic lakes - Khagiin Khar, Ugii, Khuisiin Naiman Nuur 
  • Legendary Orkhon Valley 
  • Kharkhorin - Ancient capital of the Mongol empire 
  • Hiking in the wild forest and opportunity of fishing and horse riding
  • Wild Nature
