Trip description

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.

After your first evening in UB, the group flies early in the morning to the river on a chartered Cessna Caravan.  You will land within sight of the river where the guides and boats will be waiting.  For the next six days, you will float and fish between a string of six very well appointed ger camps.  At the end of the week’s fishing, you board a charter flight near your camp for the ninety-minute return flight to UB.  An afternoon and evening in UB and the next day’s flight back home or to the next adventure.

Several guests will have chosen a combination trip and will continue downstream for another eight days of fishing. 

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 Camps

The camps on the upper river offer a bit of extra luxury in a remote setting. Each camp has a large dining ger – the traditional round Mongolian structure – where anglers and guides can relax as a group after a wonderful day on the river. The sleeping gers feature comfortable cots, linens, and wood-burning stoves. 

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

There are fewer and fewer places in this world where you can experience a truly untouched environment. The terrain went from open prairies and rolling hills to rocky cliffs. Most beautiful skies and green grass I have ever seen. If you have the chance to experience it… don’t pass it up!
