Gobi Desert & Khangai Mountains (Mountain Biking)


  • This 300km ride through remote and beautiful scenery...

    Provides an opportunity to see the real Mongolia: vast and varied landscapes, nomadic families, and historical sites. Starting with an internal flight to Bayankhongor on the northern edge of the Gobi Desert, the route goes into the Khangai Mountains, second highest range in Mongolia, and finishes near Kharkhorin the site of Genghis Khan's capital in the thirteenth century.

    The riding is 100% off road

    Following rough jeep tracks for most of the way. The highest point is Khul Sayangiin Davaa at 2750 metres, and there are several technical downhill stretches. Daily riding distance varies up to a maximum of 65km. Outside Ulaanbaatar all nights will be spent camping in Western-style tents.
