Throughout history, the nomadic people of Mongolia have moved with their herds to find better conditions, or to trade for basic necessities. Ulaanbaatar was the central trading point on the route from Russia to China, where furs were exchanged for silk and tea. Travel from east to west by merchants and tradesmen was encouraged during the Mongol Empire because the local nomadic people needed to trade for weapons, pots and cloth which they did not make themselves. This motorcycle trail encompasses some of those ancient routes, and the Buddhist monasteries along the way which were the only permanent settlements.
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.
The motorbikes are allocated and we set off. Start riding south-west across the rolling hills of Tuv "Central" province. We pass through only a couple of villages and most families are living the nomadic lifestyle. Overnight wild camping near in 'Buren' mountain.
A one hour ride on the tarmac brings us to 'Kharkhorin', once the focal point of the Mongol Empire. Visit Erdene Zuu which at one time was the largest Buddhist monastery in Mongolia. This was the first and most important Buddhist monastery in the country, founded in the 16th century. Afternoon continue westwards and overnight wild camping near 'Tuvshruulekh'. Overnight camping.
We are now in the province known as Khovsgol, a beautiful mountainous region with several major rivers. Near the point where 'Five Rivers' meet is a ger camp and here is where we spend the evening, surrounded by spectacular scenery. Overnight 'Ger' camp.
Ride south to the freshwater 'Ugii Lake' located in the hills of Arkhangai province. The lake is home to many species of fish and water birds. Overnight 'Ger' camp near the lake.
Return to Ulaanbaatar, stopping for a picnic lunch along the way. The first 25km are across open steppe on the rough tracks we have become used to. After "Dashinchilen" the road (Millenium Road) has been 'New Tarmac Road', so the final stretch to the city should be a bit quicker. Overnight hotel.
