Eastern Mongolia Motorcycle Trail

13 - 17 SEPTEMBER 2021 only USD $1395

This is an amazing 3-day ride to Khentii province east of Ulaanbaatar and includes forested mountain passes, remote steppe and dramatic landscape. The journey begins riding along the Tuul river to Terelj National Park, then a little further to the gigantic silver statue of Genghis Khan on a horse. Beyond this we ride eastward into Khentii province and through a valley where it is believed that Genghis Khan established his original capital. It is also celebrated as the place where the book “Secret History of the Mongols” was written. Wooden bridges in various states of repair cross the Kherlen river and its tributaries and the route crosses some wild high steppe and passes by a few small lakes and villages before returning to Ulaanbaatar.

Riding Terrain and Facilities

The total riding distance is 600 km of which approximately 90% is off-road on rough jeep tracks. Most of the route is an area of Mongolia rarely visited by tourists and there is no formal accommodation so we will camp in tents and take all equipment. Each night will be wild CAMPING in TENTS (tents provided) and support vehicles will carry the equipment and luggage. Support staff travel with us, including a cook to prepare the meals.

DAY BY DAY ITINERARY

This itinerary is suitable for experienced riders with some off-road experience

Arrive in    'Ulaanbaatar' and go to hotel. Afternoon or evening meet the tour leader and rest of group. The pre-tour meeting is about the day by day itinerary and safety issues. Overnight in hotel.

Meet the tour crew and allocate motorbikes. Start riding along a potholed tarmac road to reach the village of "Gachuurt". Following the "Tuul" river for several kilometres, the road quickly becomes very poor, rough and    'Rocky', with mountains either side. Heading uphill through pine and silver birch forest, cross two mountain passes at over 1800 meters altitude, then down into the valley to the village of    'Terelj'. There are many tourist Ger camps and hotels in this beautiful valley. Stop to visit the amazing silver statue of    'Genghis Khan'  on a horse and visit the museum located in the base of the statue. Continue eastwards riding through typical lush green meadows and hills inhabited only by nomadic families with their herds of animals. Overnight camping.

After the coal mining town of    'Baga Nuur'  we ride parallel to the "Kherlen" river for a while and along a long flat valley before reaching the village of "Tsenkher Mandal". After a few kilometres on the new black-topped “Millennium Road” we turn southwards, back onto the hard-pack track. We come upon the rather surprising health spa    'Avaraga Toson'  where many local people go to bathe and heal various ailments. Not far from this “holiday village” is a statue marking the place where the first book describing the history of Mongolia was written:    'The Secret History'  of the Mongols. Continue in a south-westerly direction until reaching the wide "Kherlen" River.   'Wooden'  bridges are quite exciting and make for some good photographs. Overnight camping.

The wide empty valley is crossed by many tracks and after a while we head up to a low pass at an altitude of 1273 meters and cross a wild remote stretch of steppe where you may see    'Gazelle', steppe foxes, eagles, or other wildlife. Pass through the pretty village of "Bayanjargal" and continue on for a further 40km or so, bypassing another health spa "Buureljuut Rashaan" and on to the village of "Gurvan Bag" where the line of the Trans Siberian Railway crosses our track. The trail passes by more dramatic and beautiful granite rocky mountains and over    'Buuraliin'  davaa pass at an altitude of 1603 meters with fantastic views at the top. Ride down to the mining town of "Nalaikh" and back to "Ulaanbaatar" along the tarmac road    'Overnight in hotel'.

        Departure.
