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.

  • The Khorgo volcano last errupted 20,000 years ago.
  • Pike, Taimen and Lenok are the main fish found in the White Lake.
  • Sharga Lake is a clear freshwater lake with few nutrients to sustain life.
  • Ugii Lake is a stopover lake for migrating waterbirds.


Mongolia’s wild open spaces completely lend themselves to the challenge of off-road motorcycle riding. The terrain on this Nomad’s Trail routes are 65% off-road includes rough jeep tracks, hard-pack, loose gravel, rock, mud and river crossings. Experience is required because the route is remote and far from good medical facilities. Accommodation is at traditional 'GER' camps with decent facilities, located in the most beautiful places.
