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.

  • Overnight train to Erdenet comfortable with sleeping compartments
  • Bulgan province in northern Mongolia is fertile, partly forested
  • The Selenge river is the largest river running into Lake Baikal
  • Amarbayasgalant Monastery built to house remains of Zanabazar


During 5 days cycling we cover a distance of approximately 300km, mainly on rough jeep tracks (classed as 98% off-road). There are river crossings, mountain passes and long grassy valleys, with a few technical sections. The trail is suitable for riders of some experience and is graded moderate. However, there is full vehicle support, so riders with less experience can always get a lift if necessary.

Mountain Bike Tour Map The tour begins by train from Ulaanbaatar to Erdenet City, then cycle through the mountains and valleys of Bulgan and Selenge provinces, finishing at Amarbayasgalant monastery. Mongolia is a great place for a mountain biking tour, but this route is remote and the terrain rough. In parts of the country there are no facilities for tourists so we camp in the wilderness.
