Imagine canoeing on the rivers surrounded by rolling hills or drifting along the slower and faster rivers of Central Mongolia. Canoe through breathtaking landscapes such as rolling hills covered with forest, basaltic rocky areas and the large open plains where nomadic families and their cattle are settled for the summer. Enjoy canoeing on the Tuul River close to Ulaanbaatar during an afternoon or join us for an expedition of 9 days, from Ogii Lake to Bulgan.
Day 1: We leave Ulan Bator very early in the morning and we will cover more than 10 hours driving to reach in the late evening our canoeing expedition starting point.
Day 2: Our first canoeing day will be quite relaxed. We will get customised to our canoes. The landscape around us is still flat and we will see some families living along the shores of the river.
Days 3 - 5: We’re now at the very heart of the canyon. Left and right of us we’ll see steep mountain flanks. The rapids we are navigating are of a varying degree of difficulty. The majority the rapids can be passed by canoe but for some rapids we will need to get off the canoe and shove them.
Days 6 - 7: The worst of the rapids are over and now the slopes surrounding us are getting gentler. Still we’ll traverse a magnificent landscape with steep rocky mountain sides and majestic fascinating stretches where the river has created its own way.
Day 8: We’re getting back into inhabited territory and meet nomads grazing their flock by the river. Towards the very end we’ll see traces of a nearby Soviet ghost town – a military city of once 15 000 inhabitants with paved roads a.s.o but now completely abandoned.
Day 9: Today we will leave early to drive back to Ulaanbaatar.
