Khan's Quest Motorcycle Trail in Mongolia  

8 - 16 AUGUST 2023 only USD $3195 *

The quest of Genghis Khan, Mongolia’s most famous historical figure, was to promote peace and security by developing stable trading routes and alliances. This motorcycle tour covers the five central provinces of Mongolia, the heart of the Mongol Empire, where initially dozens of warring tribes were united before spreading throughout Asia and Europe, gathering support and power over varied populations due to their lenient policy towards religions and local traditions.

Riding Terrain and Facilities

The route is 85% off-road following rough jeep tracks of packed mud, loose gravel, rock and sand. There will be some river crossings, the amount of water depending on the season and recent rainfall. Accommodation throughout the tour is at traditional 'GER' camps with a restaurant and bathroom facilities, located in the most spectacular places.

Khan's Quest Trail Highlights

The places you will see along the way:

"Baga Gazar"

These unique rock formations set in the central steppe of Middle Gobi are home to many species of wild animals and birds. It is believed that Zanabazar, the first in a line of Mongolian re-incarnate Lamas, came here for prayer and meditation.  

Baga Gazriin Chuluu Granite Mountain

"Deer Stone"

These sculptures, still to be found in their original locations, were erected by Bronze Age nomads up to 3000 years ago. They depict running deer in stylized form, and are thought to be grave markers or waypoint markers for the meeting of tribes.  

Deer Stones in Arkhangai province Mongolia

"Erdene Zuu"

The monastery was built in the 16th century at the site once occupied by Genghis Khan and the Mongol Empire. By the end of the 19th century there were more than 60 temples here and over 1000 Buddhist monks, but much was destroyed during the 1930s.
