LIFE IS EITHER A DARING
ADVENTURE OR NOTHING.
There are a lot of activities that you can practice in or around Orkhon Camp. If you want to do horseriding, our local partners can provide fully equipped horses and guides for you.
Orkhon Camp is located on the banks of the Orkhon river. This location, 7 km away from the largest waterfall of Mongolian makes it perfect for kayaking. We are the only camp that provides kayaks in the Orkhon Valley.
Orkhon Camp is also a great fishing spot. There are basically two types of fish in the river: greylings and trouts. The best way to catch them is fly fishing. Our cooks can prepare the fish that you caught or you can use our ustensils and barbeque to cook them by yourself.
Along with horseriding, archery is also one of the major features of Mongolian culture. The Mongolian Empire was conquered on horseback with arrows and bows. Mongolian warriors could shoot arrows while riding at full speed. You should definitely give a try to archery while in our camp.
You can also go and visit local nomad families living near the camp so you can taste and maybe buy their products. We suggest you to taste the fermented mare milk that that Mongolians call "airag" and the traditional Mongolian yoghurt called "tarag", made of Yak's milk.
Every summer, several festivals take place in the Orkhon valley. Here are the festivals and their dates for 2019:
