Canoe-kayak is certainly an original way to discover Mongolia, its wonderful landscapes and the nomadic life. In Summer, nomads set up their camp on the banks of the rivers. From your craft, you'll enjoy the nomadic daily life passing before your eyes. While you'll be paddling, you'll see herds sharing the river with you, the raptors flying over you, and the aquatic life. The nomads intrigued by your sailing won't fail to stop and talk with you. It's not unusual to be invited in their yurt.
in Mongolia, it's possible to go sailing in canoe only for 3 months from June to the end of August.
Beginners can sail for 1 to 3 days on the Tuul River, in the Gorkhi-Terelj National Park, after only 2 hours journey from the capital.
For those who want their tour to be focussed on canoe-kayak, we propose tours from 10 to 14 days on the Orkhon and Chuluut rivers in Arkhangai, on the Eg River in the province of Khovsgol, and on the Yeroo River in the Khentii. There's no particular difficulty for these trips, but it's better if you've already had a first experience, a good physical condition and, of course, not to be afraid of getting wet !
For your canoe trip, we provide you a waterproof bag for your belongings of the day and a life jacket. Your bags will be carried by the logistics vehicle that'll join you after each stage. A Mongolian guide, specialized in this type of activities and perfectly knowing the area, will lead and manage the trip.
