Genghis Khan Motorcycle Trail in Mongolia

20 - 27 SEPTEMBER 2021 only USD $2395

Genghis Khan was born in Dadal near to the Siberian border in the north east corner of Mongolia. This is a beautiful area of mountains, forest, lakes and wide rivers. It is also of immense historical significance and we will visit the places where Genghis Khan lived before he became leader of his Empire and moved his capital to Kharkhorin in Central Mongolia. The 1300 km ride from Ulaanbaatar to the small village of Dadal and return is an experience of wilderness and culture that would be hard to beat elsewhere.

Riding Terrain and Facilities

Some riding on the first and last days of the trip are on a new black topped road, but for the rest of the tour we follow rough jeep tracks on packed mud or rock. The ride from Ulaanbaatar to the small village of 'Dadal' is an experience of wilderness and culture that would be hard to beat elsewhere. There may be some river crossings (depends on recent weather conditions), although we travel out of our way to find bridges to cross the big rivers. All nights on tour are spent in the wild  outdoor CAMPING in TENTS (tents provided).

Genghis Khan Tour Highlights

The places you will see along the way:

"Genghis Statue"

This amazing silver statue of Genghis Khan on a horse is the biggest horse statue in the world. It is 40 meters tall and can be seen from more than 30km away, glinting in the sunshine. Visitors can get to the top for a marvelous view of the Tuul river valley.

"Blue Lake"

This small lake hidden in the mountains just north of Tsenkhermandal village, is the place where the young Temujin was crowned "Genghis Khan" in 1206. The lake is difficult to find and surrounded by muddy water-logged valleys on all sides.

"Deluun Boldog"

Genghis Khan was born in 1162 on a hill called "Deluun Boldog" not far from the Russian border.  In nearby Dadal village there is now a small lake, "Spleen Lake", where his family ger was pitched, and a tall monument celebrating 800 years since his birth.
