Mongolia is one of the most unique fly fishing destinations in the world.
Taimen, the biggest salmon in the world, is the top predator of all trout species. When they jump up from the surface catching the fly, it makes you mindful of the moment. Taimen is a real indicator fish to measure the cleanliness of the river, so get ready to fish in pristine wilderness.
Mongolia has everything a horse lover could dream of…endless miles of untrampled terrain, nomadic encampments deep in the wilderness, and some of the world’s last remaining wild horse herds roaming the horizon.
In horse crazy Mongolia you can experience a tradition going back thousands of years ago. Because horses are indispensable to Mongolian culture, it gives an authentic feeling to ride free like the wind on the steppe.
We drive into the steppes to watch the different herds of Harganat River Lodge and learn about their behaviour in the wild. You learn about Mongolian riding ways and experience what it is like to ride in a landscape without borders, under a vast blue sky. We train the riding horses from a young age, selected from a group of around 100 horses.
The Tsaatan Reindeer Herders are a unique ethnicity, related to the Tuva of Western Siberia. They live in the wild taiga in the far north of Hovsgol province, bordering the Sayan mountains. They live closely with their reindeer, the biggest in the world and they ride them! Feel a bit like entering the land of Santa Claus and find some beautiful souvenirs made by this ancient tribe.
