The Sayan Mountains are located in the south of Siberia, on the Mongolian border. This is a very remote area, with very scarce human population. These mountains are spectacular regardless of their low altitudes. There are practically no roads in the area and boats are used to reach the hunting area and to cross canyons where normally one can meet many Sayan ibexes, which can even be considered a separate subspecies.
In order to reach the area one must take a 4 hour flight from Moscow to Abakan, followed by a 1,5 hours car drive, while the final transfer to base camp is done using boats. The hunt starts by boat, one hunter per one guide, and subsequently climbing to the mountain tops in order to reach a strategic position on higher grounds on respect to the ibexes. The hunt continues for three days during which the hunters will stay in small huts without services and they will descend back to the river in the end to take the boat again. Population density of ibexes is very high and one may take very good trophies. During the hunt one may encounter maral stag which can also be hunted.
This type of hunt requires good physical fitness.
