The Sayan mountains lie in southern Siberia, on the border with Kazakhstan, the Altai mountains and Mongolia, south east of the city of Abakan.
It is here that the mighty River Jenisej starts its epic journey to the northern polar seas. At first the river runs west, but after it breaks through the Sayan mountains it continues on its way to the north. It is a wonderful wildlife experience just to travel through this mountain landscape, where one of the world’s most fabled rivers has its source.
This district offers really good hunting for Siberian ibex, maral stag, brown bear and siberian roebuck.
September to the beginning of October
From Frankfurt/London airport you fly directly to Moscow, and from there further to Abakan with a domestic flight.
From Abakan you drive to the River Jenisej, one of the largest rivers in Asia that runs from Mongolia all the way to the sea off northern Siberia.
From here you continue your journey by house boat, a voyage of around 10 hours. Occasionally we will use a speed boat, which will cut the journey time down to 4 1/2 hours.
On arrival in the mountains, the hunters and their guides will be set ashore, and a short walk awaits them to a newly built hunting cabin by the river. It is here you will meet your hunting guides, zero your rifles and spend the first night.
The next morning you will sail further up the river valley in a small boat belonging to the guide. This will take between 1/2 - 2 hours depending on the hunting area and the wanted game species.
From here you will walk for 4 - 6 hours up into the mountains to a simple, small, mountain hut where you will stay during the hunt.
For the next 7 -8 days this will be your base, and every day you will walk with your hunting guide out into the hunting district from here.
There are no horses, there are no motor vehicles, so all hunting will be on foot in this fantastic mountain landscape. As is the case on all mountain hunts, it is important that you are physically fit.
After the hunt the hunters and their guides will make their way back to the river, and sail back together, before making their way back to Abakan by car.
On arrival in the hunting district you will spend your first night here in a charming cabin on the banks of the river. This cabin has a number of bedrooms, a sitting and dining room, a sauna, bathroom and toilet, and taking into account it’s remote location it is very comfortable indeed. Here you can “shoot-in” your rifle and re-pack for the days you will spend in the...Read more
