Khorgo Volcano & White Lake Motorcycle Trail

4 - 12 August 2017 only USD $2795

An off-road motorcycle tour through Mongolia's central provinces is the opportunity to see just what an amazing place this is. You can swim in the beautiful White Lake, climb the Khorgo Volcano and ride through the town of Kharkhorin which was once the capital of Genghis Khan's Mongol Empire. Motorbike touring in Mongolia is a great way to experience Central Asia, but you need some off-road experience.

TERKHIN TSAGAAN NUUR "WHITE LAKE"

The White Lake is located in a volcanic area of Arkhangai province and was created when volcanic lava damned the "Suman" river and cut a large gorge through the basalt. It is a beautiful lake, surrounded by high mountains and popular with colonies of wild birds including geese, ducks and swans.

KHORGO VOLCANO

Khorgo, an extinct volcano in the district of Tariat overlooks Terkhiin Tsagaan Nuur, the White Lake. It is an easy walk to the top from where one can look down into the 100 meter crater and walk around the edge of it. It is interesting to see how volcanic activity thousands of years ago has changed the landscape.

OGII NUUR LAKE

This lake, 25 square kilometers in size, is located not far from the Tsetserleg - Ulaanbaatar road. It attracts large numbers of migratory birds.

TAIKHIR CHULUU

Nearby our ger camp in Ikh Tamir village, beside the Khoit-Tamir river, is an unusual rock known as "Taikhir Chuluu". It is 16 meters tall, standing in an otherwise empty flat plain. The subject of local legend, it is covered in ancient inscriptions which possible date back to the stone age, as well as "tamga" clan marks and texts written in Chinese, Tibetan, Manchu and other languages.

ANCIENT SCULPTURES

There are Iron age "Deer Stones" and some "Man Stones" in Arkhangai province dating back to the period of the Tuje Turks. The man stone statues are human figures shown standing holding a cup symbolising their participation in the funeral banquet organised in their own honour.

KHARKHORIN

The town of Kharkhorin in the Orkhon valley was the place chosen by Genghis Khan as capital of the Mongol Empire in the twelfth century.

This '1700km' route will be a challenge, although part of the road between Ulaanbaatar and Kharkhorin has now been black-topped. We ride from one traditional ger camp to the next, staying in places of exceptional beauty or importance.

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"
