To enjoy the most amazing scenery, historical sights, and Mongolia’s full range of geographical zones, one needs to do this grand enduro tour. The route includes the beautiful Orkhon waterfall, several freshwater and saltwater lakes, dramatic granite features and volcanic landscapes, plus Lake Khovsgol – sister lake of Baikal which is only 600 km away on the Russian side of the border. The first part of the route goes through the mountains and valleys which were the centre of the Mongol Empire. This grand enduro tour of over 1500 km covers remote steppe, mountain and forest, nearly all off-road, on all types of terrain. To maximise the distance covered in the time available, take a domestic flight back to Ulaanbaatar at the end of the trail.

  • Lake Khovsgol is a sister lake of Baikal in Siberia.
  • Man stones are regsitered by UNESCO as a cultural heritage.
  • The Orkhon waterfall is 10 meters wide and 20 meters high.
  • Chuluut river canyon is embedded in the mountainous steppe.


This tour is 90% off-road and terrain includes hard-pack, loose gravel, mud, sand, rock, tricky downhill sections and river crossings. Much of the trail is fast and some days are long, requiring stamina. The trail is not suitable for beginners without off-road experience; it is very remote and far from good medical facilities. All nights are 'WILD CAMPING' except the last night at a 'GER' Camp where the accommodation is in traditional Mongolian round white felt tents, and there are restaurant and bathroom facilities.
