Trip description

Every 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. 

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.  Some Buryat Expeditions will drive to the river.  

For the next thirteen to twenty-one days, you float and fish between a string of very well appointed tipi and ger camps.  Some combination trips will also include a full-day to wade-walk prime taimen waters on the last day.  At the end of the your extended fishing adventure, 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

The combination trips offer a great variety of camps.  Depending on your specific itinerary, you’ll spend your nights in a mixture of both super-comfortable ger camps and slightly more rustic tipi camps.  The Upper River is all ger camps, while on the remote sections of the Buryat and Lower River Expeditions, all of our gear is transported by a fleet of gear boats every day.  These camps are a mix of Tipi Camps and Ger Camps.

The ger camps  have a large dining ger. The sleeping gers feature comfortable cots, linens, and wood-burning stoves.

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.  

You can see photos and read more about the meals and camps here.

“A place that we all consider one of the most
