This adventure promises a tranquil and scenic experience in the far northwest. You'll indulge in fishing along the Alag Tseel River and in the Darkhad Valley, surrounded by breathtaking snowy peaks. The valley, boasting over 300 lakes, is a haven for birdwatchers. The Alag Tseel River, with its slow flow, is rich in graylings, lenoks, and remarkably large taimen.
