Mongolia is one of the most unique and unexplored destinations in Asia, with its wide open spaces, nomadic people, and proud history. If you’re looking to immerse yourself in a place that is completely different from home, you couldn’t do much better than this country. Cycle through the grasslands of Mongolia where animals graze, highways are dirt tracks and people still know nothing other than the traditional nomadic lifestyle. The grasslands are a natural habitat for millions of grasshoppers that you will see everywhere on this tour. Needless to say, we feel very at home in Mongolia.
Not only will you cycle through a wide variety of diverse landscapes on this tour-including the mountains of the Arkhanghai, lush green grasslands, pine forests and the spectacular Orkhon Falls- but you will also see an incredible array of wildlife including birds of prey, cattle, yaks, gophers and the pride of many Mongolians: the horse. For the duration of the ride, you will stay off the beaten track- literally, as the route avoids the few sealed roads that exist in Mongolia.
This really is a trip to getting away from it all. When you are out in the middle of the grasslands, sleeping in a tent or ger, you couldn't be further from the modernism of the western world. Hop on your bike and escape to Mongolia for a 13-day active adventure.
395 km / 245 mi riding. The entire ride in Mongolia is off road so some experience riding on uneven surfaces and dirt roads is expected. While there are no technical mountain biking sections experience in riding dirt trails will be an advantage. As we are away from the few roads in Mongolia the only traffic to contend with are sheep, goats, horses and cattle!
Camp out under the endless stars or stay in a well-equipped Ger camp with ample facilities.
Pedal through the historic Orkhan Valley, across ancient lava flow to the Orkhan Falls for a hike or dip in the chilly water.
Visit the otherworldly Mongol Els Sand Dunes that stick out in the middle of the barren steppe.
Explore the city of Ulaanbaatar that greatly contrasts all the scenery you have cycled through thus far.
