Canoeing in Egiin River Northern Mongolia

Day 1.
Arrival in Ulaanbaatar
Upon arrival at the airport you will be welcomed by our team. We will bring you to your comfortable, centrally located hotel. Ulaanbaatar is fast-growing modern city with more than 1.3 million habitants. Depending on your arrival time, city tour can be organized. City sightseeing includes Bogd Khan's Winter & Summer Palace, a series of beautiful traditional buildings in which the eighth Living Buddha and the last king lived. It is now a museum displaying fascinating artefacts and costumes associated with the last king as well as his collection of stuffed animals. We will stop at the Gandantegchinlen Monastery. It is the largest and the most important monastery of Mongolia. We will scroll through the different monasteries and see the magnificent statue of Migjid Janraisig, an 82-foot high statue gilded in gold and covered with silk cloths. We will finish city tour with Zaisan hill to have a view of whole Ulaanbaatar. The city sightseeing tour takes about 4 – 5 hours. In the evening your tour guide will give you a short briefing about the trip and answer all your questions before he takes you to a famous Mongolian restaurant for the first taste of Mongolian food.

Day 2.
Uran Togoo, Bulgan Village
After a good breakfast in our hotel restaurant, we will set off to the countryside in our vehicles. About 400 km driving west north of capital city is the extinct volcano of Uran Uul and nearby Togoo Uul, now part of the 1600 hectare Uran-Togoo Tulga Uul Natural Reserve in the sum (district) of Khutag-Ondor. It is a beautiful place to break long driving day. Trails to the top of the relatively unimpressive volcano lead up from the west side, which also has some nice camping areas.

Day 3.
Khuvsgul Lake
Today we will arrive at Huvsgul Lake. The breath taking beautiful Mongolian Blue Pearl. Hovsgol Lake is a huge 2760 square km alpine lake (130 km in length and 30 km in width), surrounded by mountain chains, thick pine forests and lush meadow with grazing yaks and horses. More than 100 small rivers and streams feed the lake with crystal clear water. Water exits the lake through only one river, the Egiin, whose waters eventually reach the Baikal Lake. The lake contains about 1.5% of the world's fresh water (excluding water contained in the icecaps). The lake and rivers are full of fish. Around a dozen species of fish inhabit the lake and rivers. The most well-known are the sturgeon, grayling, lennok, salmon, taimon, etc.

Day 4.
Extra Day at Khuvsgul Lake
We will spend a full day exploring the lakeshore and surrounding mountains. For those interested, they will have the possibility to go horseback riding, visit reindeer families, go hiking and canoeing (if weather permits).
(Ger camp B, L, D)
Day 5.
Canoeing
Our start point will be right next to village Hatgal. From Hovsgol Lake only one river flows out, the Egiin, whose water eventually reach the Baikal Lake. Egiin is a river with quite rapid current at certain places shaped by impressive little canyons and following fertile valleys surrounded with complete wilderness abundant with wild flora and fauna. Being the significant water resource of the region, summer time many nomads come and camp next to river with their herd. While on river canoeing we not only enjoy the diverse landscapes unfolding in every direction but interact with locals, children with their huge herd watering by the river. We will have chance to visit a nomad family and spend an evening with nomads. Barbeque cooked over hot stones is on the menu. Engage a friendly chat & listen to their amazing life stories over one or two shots of vodka. Herders make local vodka from fermented milk. Our support team and vehicle travelling not far from us can always be joined by radio when needed.
