Gobi Desert Off Road Motorcycle Trail

30 August - 8 September 2017 only USD $3195

This trip is a fascinating cultural experience as well as an off-road bike tour across Mongolia of over 1750km. Apart from a few villages and small towns that we pass through on the way, most of the population have a nomadic lifestyle, frequently moving with their round white felt yurts ("gers") and herds of camels, goats and horses.

KHONGOR ELS DUNES

Khongoryn Els is the largest accumulation of sand in the Gobi Gurvan Saikhan National Park. The wind blows continually, so the dunes can reach an imposing 200 meters height. The highest dunes are called 'Singing Sands' by the local inhabitants.

GOBI DESERT

The famous Gobi Desert is not all vast flat steppe under a deep blue sky. There are bizarre rock formations, canyons, the Gurvansaikhan mountain range and sand dunes 185km long, as well as forests of small saksaul trees and other desert vegetation.

ONGII RUINS

Ongii Hiid, a once large Buddhist Monastery destroyed in the 1930s lies in the hills on the edge of a bend in the Ongi river. It is a quiet and spiritual place; one can imagine the original busy monastery on one side of the river and the non-religious community on the other side.

WHITE STUPA

Tsagaan Suvaraga (White Stupa) limestone rock is about 30 metres high and shaped strangely as a result of wind and water erosion. This area is rich in marine fossils as a huge inland sea once covered it. In the year 2000 an earthquake shook the eastern part of the White Stupa and it partly collapsed.

VULTURE'S MOUTH CANYON

The Bearded Vulture, 'Yol' in Mongolian, has given the valley its name: 'Yolyn Am' means Vulture Gorge. The Gurvan Saikhan National Park is the only area in the southern Gobi Altai region where copses of beech and willow trees have been preserved.

This tour is nearly all on rough jeep tracks across the rolling hills of Middle Gobi and the sparse desert of South Gobi. All nights are spent at ger camps where the accommodation is in traditional Mongolian round white felt tents, and there are restaurant and bathroom facilities. Some days are long and require stamina, but towards the end of the tour the distance between ger camps is less and riding days shorter.

What Our Customers Think

  • "We were very impressed with the organisation, variety of terrain and scenery, the food - delicious ! We think this just might be the best catered trip we have been on - the support, the bikes and their maintenance and the team in general. We will certainly be telling all our friends about how professional this trip was. We had a great time"

    Huw Williams (Wales)
  • We wish that we had more time to spend in Mongolia. What a fascinating place. Not only the Naadam Festival in Ulaanbaatar, but the many mini - Naadam Festivals we encountered in the countryside as well as the people and scenery were fantastic...

    Steve Sidebotham (Delaware, USA)
  • "We really enjoyed our time in Mongolia with the off-road experience and closeness to nature. The experience at the family ger was an emotional one. It struck a chord with me, somewhere deep inside. I could see the sense in their simple way of life, which I have not really been able to see in ours in the west"

    Joakim Hansson (Sweden)
  • "We really enjoyed all aspects of our trip. The itinerary was well organized. We felt like we had a good taste of the country. We especially liked meeting the nomadic family. The accommodations and food were all satisfying as well"

    Hans Schnegluth (Germany)
