Along the river Delgermörön
On our ReQuest voyages, travelers can enjoy more temperate adventures, and below can you read about a trip along the river Delgermörön in magic Mongolia.
As we look out of our ger tents in the morning, we see impressive cliffs and Mongolia's immense blue sky!
We eat a hearty breakfast that is hard to understand how they have been able to make in such a remote place. As we eat, rubber floats are loaded onto an old Soviet truck that will take us to the starting point for today's adventure. We float, row and sometimes have to steer through fast currents. On both sides of us there are steep rock formations and the water surrounding us is as clear as crystal. In several places can we see the taimen, a trout species that can be up to 1.5 meters long. After a couple of hours, we step ashore at the river bank and sit down to have luch.
After a few more hours we are back in the camp where the staff shows us how to put up a ger and how they make horhorg, a traditional Mongolian dish made of lamb, potatoes, carrots and salt, cooked with hot stones. The ingredients were not so many but still the food tasted absolutely amazing.
