Short Tours Description

Day 1:

Upon arrival at the airport we will be welcomed by your guide. He will bring us to your comfortable, centrally located hotel. In the afternoon we will have a drive to Zaisan Memorial, build by the Russians to commemorate unknown soldiers from different wars. Located on a Southern hill of Ulaanbaatar, we will be able to enjoy an excellent view of the capital and the surrounding countryside. Overnight in Hotel.

Day 2:

Drive Eastwards, pass Baganuur town. Family Stay or camping.

Day 3:

Drive further North Eastwards to reach the first fishing spot in the afternoon. We will fish all effluents of the Onon River.

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.

Family Stay or camping.

Departures Date

If you are a group on your own, departures are whenever you wish.

If your are looking for other people to join you, we can have a look at the demands we had. Maybe we can help you to find some travel companions to make the trip with you. This is however not easy because each person has different dates and wishes. The easiest is to be a group on your own.

If you travel alone and want to join a group, we offer fixed tour departures those days:

Group Size

2 to 12 people

Normally the group size is a minimum of two people per trip. However if some people desire to travel alone, we can book the tour for a single person. The price will be 75% of the price for a 2 person tour.


We offer 3 different price categories for our tours:

  • Budget Trips: tented camp, cook, food, guide, Russian mini van

  • Normal Trips: ger camp stay with food, guide, Russian mini van

  • Luxury Trips: ger camp stay with food, guide, Japanese jeep

Please contact us for the updated prices. We offer special discount prices for off season tours.


Depending on the tour you book and the service you want to have during your trip, you will overnight in ger camps or tented camps. Family stay is always possible.

  • Gers Camp. Gers from Ger Camp are the traditional felt tents of nomadic herders. Each ger is furnished with a wood stove and beautifully painted furniture such as beds, a table and stools. Gers are based on double occupancy. Each ger camp has its restaurant, western style toilet and hot water showers. Most visitors find their stay in gers, which provide an authentic taste of Mongolian culture and adventure, their most enjoyable experience in Mongolia.

  • Tented Camp is a camp build on a nice spot. The travellers will sleep in Western style tents. We will however do our best to offer you the best available service. We pride ourselves on the level of comfort we provide while camping in these remote areas, but camping is not for everyone. It is important to remain open-minded and physically willing.

  • Family stay is an experience a traveller to Mongolia should experience. You can tell us in advance exactly where you want to have a family stay during your trip, or, if you do not like to plan to much in advance, the driver and the guide can organise a family stay while travelling. If you plan to have an overnight in a Mongolian Nomadic family, you should take sleeping bags and matrasses with you. So please tell us in advance of you are planning to overnight in a family so that we can provide you with all the necessary equipment.
