Exciting mountain biking route in the provinces of Bulgan and Selenge, south of the border with Siberia. We travel by train from Ulaanbaatar to the start of the trail at the copper mining city of Erdenet. The mountains, forests, rivers and valleys we ride through are remote, inhabited only by nomadic families with their herds of animals. Towards the end of the trail, when we still feel as though we are in the middle of nowhere, we suddenly come upon the fantastic Amarbayasgalant monastery. It was built in the early 18th century during the period of Manchu domination, and is one of the largest and best Buddhist monasteries in the country.

Some have copied our "Bulgan Mountain Bike Trail" and website content, given it a new name and advertised it as their own tour, at a cheaper price, perhaps without having tried and tested the route.
