Ride out over mountains, past extinct volcanoes and through the Mongolian wilderness on your own dirtbike to the unbelievably serene Khovsgol Lake. It’s a 136 km long strip of water home to brown bears, ibex, argali, elk, wolves, Musk deer, sable and Wolverines. We’ll camp out in comfortable and warm yurts and travel by motorbike with a support crew of mechanics, translators and drivers.

Arrival day. Relax in your hotel before a meting with your guide for some last minute preparations.
Today we travel to the capital of the ancient Mongolian Dynasty, Kharkhorin, to visit the beautiful Erdenezuu Monastery decorated with 10 white stupas. On the way we will visit the spectacular Elsen Tasarkhai sand dunes. Tonight is our first night in a ger camp.
TSENKHER HOT SPA
We travel only 140km but this will take at least 4 hours on high forest mountain roads to reach the hot spa. Here we can relax in the volcanic hot springs which emerge from the ground at 85c and contain curative properties for joints and other ailments.
Our journey today takes us to the Khorgo extinct volcano in the Khorgo Terkhilin Tsagaan Nuur National Park. We camp beside the stunning Terkhilin Tsagaan Lake.
A long day of travelling is rewarded when we reach one of Mongolia’s largest fresh water lakes which is more than 2 million years old.
A free day to enjoy this stunning area, time to relax, swim and trek. This protected park is home to a variety of wildlife including ibex, argali, elk, wolf, wolverine, musk deer, brown bear, Siberian moose and sable.
URAN TOGOO MOUNTAIN
A big day on the road to absorb and enjoy the vastness of the Mongolian landscape.
We travel through Mongolia’s second largest city, Erdenet, on our way to the Monastery. With a truly tranquil setting, the monastery is a holy place on the pilgrimage trail. Enjoy the breathtakingly beautiful starry sky as we camp here for the night.
In the afternoon we return to UB for some final shopping and a farewell traditional bbq dinner.
Departure day. We hope you had an awesome trip.
Travelling by Motorbike
This tour isn’t for first time motorbike riders. You’ll need to have ridden a bike before, hold a valid international license and make sure you know how to handle powerful bikes. This tour is tough, liberating, heart pounding adventure. If you fancy something easier you can do the same tour in the comfort of a Jeep. When you arrive in the Gobi Desert you’ll be met by your own private Team. Each team has a mechanic and a guide trained as a translator. They’ll navigate the stunning dunes of the desert, keep you nice and safe and help you interact with the local nomads.
Minimum number of people
Due to the large number of support staff required for this trip we reccommend a minimum booking of 3 people per trip. Any less and the cost of the trip becomes very expensive.
For the first and last night of your trip you will stay in a basic but clean hotel in the capital city. For the rest of your journey you’ll stay in a traditional nomadic Ger (like a yurt). They aren’t your ordinary tent. Each Ger is shared between 3-5 people and comes furnished with comfortable beds and spaces to lounge and relax.
