information about

Riding Terrain and Facilities

The route is 75% off-road and is challenging as it has been revised to avoid the new asphalt road where possible and go an alternative way on rough and remote tracks. Even the first day is 400 km off-road, requiring stamina and strength. All nights are spent at 'GER' Camps where the accommodation is in traditional Mongolian round white felt tents, and there are restaurant and bathroom facilities.

White Lake Tour Highlights

The places you will see along the way:

"White Lake" Mongolia

The lake was formed when torrents of lava from the Khorgo volcano blocked the north and south rivers, thus forming the dammed lake of "Terkhiin Tsagaan Nuur" at an altitude of 2060 meters above sea level.

"Khorgo Volcano"

This extinct volcano lies at an altitude of 2240 meters, east of the White Lake in a National Park. The volcanic crater is 200 meters wide and 100m deep; the northern slope is covered with Siberian larch.

"Taikhir Chuluu"

This mysterious pinnacle of granite rises abruptly from the flat grassland of the gravel spreads of the Tamir River. There is no agreement amongst geologists on the origin of this puzzling phenomenon.

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.

Set out early morning and ride south eastwards, initially on the main asphalt road to    'Zuun Mod'  town, then off into the wilderness. Outside the city most people live the traditional nomadic lifestyle, moving several times a year with their herds of animals and we pass through only a couple of villages along the way. Arrive    'Khogno Khan'  in the late evening. Overnight at the foot of the dramatic granite mountain.

Ride "Khogno Khan" to "Kharkhorin" town and spend an hour or two at    'Erdene Zuu'  monastery. This is an active monastery and we will probably see the resident monks performing their morning rituals. Ride through the district of "Tuvshuruulekh" and "Tsenkher" to arrive at "Tsetserleg" town for a late lunch. Cross over "Bulgan" mountain pass to the Ger camp beside the "Tamir" river and the sacred    'Taikhar Chuluu'

Riding mainly on rough jeep tracks, we travel across the fertile rolling hills of Arkhangi province, passing through the village of 'Chuluut'.  Ride on to "Tariat" village and stay at a Ger camp beside the river at the base of    'Chuluut Gorge'.

Ride clockwise round the lake to reach the salt water    'Country Lake'  nearby which are several ancient    'Stone Sculptures'. There are usually a number of nomadic families here and you will see how they live in this harsh environment. Arrive at the    'Ger Camp'  in the afternoon and relax by the lake. 

Depart from the Ger camp on the shores of the    'White Lake'  and visit the Cave of the "Yellow Dog", then climb to the top of the    'Khorgo Volcano'.  Walk around the rim of the crater for fantastic views of the whole area including the lake and surrounding black lava field. Then ride back to "Ikh Tamir" on tarmac road, stopping on the way at "Chuluut" River Gorge. Overnight "Ikh Tamir" Ger camp.

From "Ikh Tamir" ride along the valley following the "Tamir" river eastwards to "Ugii Nuur" lake. This is an area of some historical significance since the princes of Mongolia’s Turkic era (7th century) were based here and even now there are a number of ancient monuments including    'Deer Stones'  to be seen. Cross the Tamir river on a    'Raft'  and arrive early afternoon. Overnight 'Ger' camp near the "Ugii Nuur" lake.

Return to Ulaanbaatar, stopping for a picnic lunch along the way. The first 25km are across open steppe on the rough tracks we have become used to. After "Dashinchilen" the road (Millenium Road) has been    'surfaced', so the final stretch to the city should be a bit quicker.   'Overnight in hotel'
