Buying a Yak in Mongolia

Postby steven » Tue Jun 27, 2017 4:37 am

Got this as a PM

Hi Steven,

I am a potential traveler from New Zealand, looking to head to Mongolia in search of the fantastic fly fishing they have there. After some brief internet research, it seems as though you may be an authority on the purchase of Yaks in Ulaanbaatar!

I guess all we are wanting to know at this stage is what the cost of purchasing a Yak likely to be (roughly), and what is the best way of doing so once on the ground in Mongolia? Is this at all feasible?

This trip won't occur for a couple of years yet, we are the type of travelers who like to make sure we get out research done before we rush into anything.

Any help around this would be greatly appreciated.

My answer

Hi Cameron,

I once researched this topic long ago when I first started the site. I do not know what happened to the yak business in the meantime in Mongolia.

It is meant more to inspire rather than to be a full-on guide. In short, I don't know the price. Do let us know if you find out!

A yak costs about 400-500$ in Tajikistan, as a guideline.
