Fishing at Onon River Eastern 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 most important monastery of Mongolia. We will scroll through the different monasteries and see the magnificent statue of Migjid Janraisig, an 82-food 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 3.
Fishing
Six full days of exploring this beautiful and fascinating river, with the full support of staffs, rafts and camping equipment. The Onon River is a major watershed for Asia. The river begins on the eastern slope of the Khentii Mountains just south of Russian Siberia and within the immense Khan Khentii Strictly Protected Area (National Park), which is totally devoid of people. The river eventually joins the Herlen and Amur Rivers before entering the Pacific Ocean at the Sea of Okhotsk. Further down river we will reach the first inhabited areas. The majority of the locals are "Buryats", a Mongolian ethnic minority, whose ancestors migrated over the border from Siberia early 1900s. Most families herd livestock. The primary form of transportation is still a horse. We will move further down river every day, pitching a new camp each night. A cook will prepare our meals, and perhaps, just a picnic lunch will be prepared for midday. We expect to make use of morning and late afternoon fishing, and moving during midday, provided this method is suitable for fishing. Angling for wild fish in an inspiring alpine landscape. We fish in a variety of locations from tight spring creeks to the large main river. Eventually we will meet our support vehicles near Batshireet village, situated on the Eg River, a tributary of the Onon.

Drive back to Ulaanbaatar
Two days of return drive to Ulaanbaatar, with camping on the way. We will now travel overland, across the treeless steppes, making contact also with Mongolian nomads of steppes.

You will reach your hotel in Ulaanbaatar in the early afternoon on the second day. Afternoon is free time for last minute sightseeing. At 6 pm we will go and see the beautiful cultural show enjoy the colourful and rhythmic Mongolian dance, throat singing and admire & contortionists. For our last evening we will have a fare well dinner at one of the city's best restaurant and share some unforgettable moments of the trip.
