Everything started in 2008, when one of our guides, Jürg, went on his first three-month-visit to Northern Mongolia. His fascinated reports from Mongolia reached wide open ears in Switzerland, and so it didn't take too long until the first group of Swiss paddlers came to Mongolia and went down Ider gol. That was in 2010.
When in the same year another very important person – Tudevvaanchig, or simply "Tudevee", a very experienced Mongolian expedition-guide – entered the stage, the plan to become more active in Mongolia started to take concrete shape: We decided to buy boats and equipment in Mongolia and the first tours in this beautiful, remote country were included in the company's annual catalogue in 2012.
In early 2015, Tudevee also started his own tour company – "Targan Sarlag
" or, in English, "Fat Yak
". Through the cooperation of Siesta Oppi and Fat Yak it has become possible to offer you a much wider range of tours and possibilities, such as custom trips organized by Fat Yak.
