Master Rally Motorcycle Trail in Mongolia

Two members of our tour support team particpated in the Mongolian Automotive Motorcycle Federation "MAMF" rally and this "Master Rally Tour" follows part of that original route. It is 90% off-road, covering a distance of 1650 kilometres over 7-days riding in a remote part of ‘Ovorkhangai’ province. The trail goes south from Ulaanbaatar to the edge of the Gobi Desert, returning via a more mountainous landscape.

Riding Terrain and Facilities

The route will be a challenge: the track is sometimes fast and other times rough and difficult on loose gravel, rock and sand. Technical skill and stamina are required because the daily riding hours are long. If you need comfort or luxury of any kind, this trip is not for you! Every night will be spent CAMPING in TENTS (tents provided) and there are no washing or toilet facilities.

The places you will see along the way:

"Mt. Baga Bogd"

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. Start pre-tour meeting. The meeting talks about day by day itinerary and safety issues. Overnight in hotel.

After allocating the bikes, set off from the city, riding first to    'Nalaikh', then going off-road. The landscape is open and hilly with several low passes to cross. There are some unusual granite rock formations and we stop in such a place at midday. After lunch continue riding to the village of "Bayan-Tsagaan" and set up camp in the surrounding hills.   'Overnight Camping'.

Ride through "Gobi Ugtaal" village then to the mountains known as    'Ikh Gazriin Chuluu', where the highest peaks are at an altitude of over 1700 meters. This is an amazing place with a dramatic skyline and is a very photogenic place to set up camp.    'Overnight Camping'.

The landscape becomes more open as we ride southwards to     'Mandal Gobi', capital of Middle Gobi province. The track proceeds towards the dark massif of    'Delgerkhangai'  mountain, which we ride towards for several hours before arriving at the village of "Delgerkhangai" at the foot of the mountain. The road winds up into the mountains to the highest pass at 1502 meters altitude. This is another unexpected and exciting mountain range in the middle of the central    'Mongolian Steppe'.  Exit the mountains and ride on mainly flat terrain in an increasingly remote wilderness, many tracks of which are not marked on maps at all. Overnight camping in "Mandal-Ovoo" district.    'Overnight Camping'.

We ride parallel to a range of low rocky hills with many holes and caves in. As we approach the northern edge of the Gobi Desert the ground becomes sandy with many pink flowering grasses and      'Zag' (“Saksaul”) trees. This is the true home of the    'Bactrian Camel'. Sometimes the track is sandy, but if it rains this turns to    'sticky clay'  making very difficult riding; occasionally the road has been destroyed by rain. Pass beside “Ulaan Khamariin Bulsh” whose red cliffs are an interesting feature on the landscape, while ahead lie the big dark    'Arts Bogdiin Nuruu'  mountains. Arrive camp near the village of "Bogd". Overnight camping.

Now travelling northwards, many tracks    'criss-cross'  the countryside, dividing and re-joining, or going off in another direction. Sometimes the road is in a very poor condition having been    'partly destroyed'  by flooding, and after rain would be muddy and difficult to ride. Cross a bridge over the “Arguut” river and pass through several small villages before setting up camp in the hills leading to "Sant" village. Overnight camping.

From the village of "Sant" the scenery is pretty with fertile rolling hills and layer upon layer of mountains in the background. Some areas have unusually    'shaped rocks'  and there are ancient graves are in the area of 'Shireet' mountain. Ride to "Erdenedalai" village then north to the unusual    'Zorgol Khairkhan'  granite mountains in "Bayanunjuul" district. Overnight camping.

From the "Zorgol Khairkhan" mountains we ride to "Bayan-Unjuul" village and through the nearby sand dunes. Part of the distance covered today will be on the    'new tarmac road',  and we arrive in Ulaanbaatar on the east side of the city.    'Overnight in hotel'.
