Detailed description


Flight to Moron

Today we will catch morning flight to Moron, province centre of Khovsgol region. After an hour and half flight at Moron airport you will be picked up by our team and drive north to our fishing spot Alag Tseel River, situated in Darkhad Valley and get settled comfortably in your camp.

The Darkhad Valley, located northwest of Khovsgol Lake is situated between the Ulaan Taiga and Khoridol Saridag mountain ranges. It is at an altitude of 1600 m above sea level and covers an area of 4300 km².

The valley is rich in lakes and rivers, the biggest of which are Tsagaan Lake and Shishged River, respectively. The area is famous for its natural beauty, but relatively remote and inaccessible even by Mongolian standards. The remote & wild region is home to Mongolian minor ethnic group known as Tsaatan or Dukha, one of the last remaining reindeer herders of the world. Their unique way of life is centred and structured around reindeer and guided by Shamanism, ancestral spiritual practice based on nature worship. During your stay in the region we will have a chance to visit Tsaatan settlement and discover their life and the influence of Shamanism on their daily life.

Fishing in Alag Tseel River

We will spend a day fishing by the river, surrounded by impressive snowy peaks. Spanning 4000m, this valley is a paradise for bird watchers because of the number of lakes (more than 300). The abundance of birds: ducks; geese; swans; cranes; curlews; heron; snipe; and many other birds will increase your pleasure while you fish there. This small and slow flowing river is also rich in graylings, lenoks, as well as surprisingly large taimen. It is ideally suited for fly-fishing, and the views are incredible.

Fishing in Shishged River

We will leave in the early morning for the northern part of this journey, where there are two splendid rivers to be discovered. We will be following the Shishged River. We will camp for the night on the Shishged’s banks, from which we can fish for the rest of the day.

The Shishged River is one of the most beautiful angling grounds of Mongolia. It flows through mountainous woodland and forms numerous islets. Its waters are the home of abundant lenok, grayling and trophy-sized taimen.
