Genghis Khan was born in Dadal near to the Siberian border in the north east corner of Mongolia. This is a beautiful area of mountains, forest, lakes and wide rivers. It is also of immense historical significance and we will visit the places where Genghis Khan lived before he became leader of his people and moved his capital to Kharkhorin in Central Mongolia. The 1400km ride from Ulaanbaatar to the small village of Dadal and return is an experience of wilderness and culture that would be hard to beat elsewhere.
THIS ITINERARY IS SUITABLE FOR EXPERIENCED RIDERS, PREFERABLY WITH SOME OFF-ROAD EXPERIENCE.
Arrive in 'Ulaanbaatar' and go to hotel. Evening meet the tour leader and rest of group for Technical Briefing. The meeting talks about day by day itinerary and safety issues. Overnight in hotel.
Ride on rough jeep tracks through silver birch forest and open rocky hilltops through 'Binder District' to an ancient King’s graveyard in the mountains. There is little left to see of the cemetery, but interesting to note the historical importance of this area. Overnight camping.
Not far from our campsite are some bronze-age rock paintings which we stop to see before riding on to Bayan Adraga village beside the wide 'Onon' river. Ride through a beautiful forested area and camp before the bridge. Overnight wild camping.
Cross the Onon river near the entrance to Onon-Balj National Park, then ride north a short distance to Dadal village where Genghis Khan was born in 1162. Where his mother’s ger once stood there is now a small lake and not far away there is an excellent viewpoint called 'Deluun Boldog'. Drive to Norovlin district to camp.
Drive across the fertile open hills of Batnorov district and through the village to reach Onderkhaan, recently renamed Chinggis City, the capital of Khentii province located beside the 'Kherlen River'. Overnight camping on a mountainside in Jargalant district.
Return to Ulaanbaatar on the good new black paved road, stopping for a picnic lunch along the way. Overnight hotel.
NOTE: Please note that nowadays there are a few competitor motorcycle companies offering the same or similar tours. Some have copied our "Genghis Khan Motorcycle 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.
