This motorcycle tour through Mongolia's central provinces is partly off-road and offers the opportunity to see just what an amazing place this is. Ride round the shore of the White Lake, climb the Khorgo Volcano and ride through the town of Kharkhorin which was once the capital of Genghis Khan's Mongol Empire. Motorbike touring in Mongolia is a great way to experience Central Asia, but you need some off-road experience.


  • "White Lake" at an altitude of 2060 meters above sea level
  • Khorgo Volcano volcanic crater is 200 meters wide and 100m deep
  • "Taikhar Chuluu" mysterious pinnacle of granite
  • Kharkhorin was the capital of the Mongol Empire in the 13th century



This 1750 km route will be a challenge, as we have revised it to avoid the new black-topped road and go an alternative way on rough and remote tracks. Even the first day is 400km 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.
