Start riding from Tsenkher up to hot mineral springs in the mountains. The track then passes through remote and beautiful scenery where the only inhabitants are nomadic families with their herds of horses, yaks and sheep. The scenery is quite dramatic, especially at the Orkhon waterfall, and there are lovely wild flowers during the summer months. Ride on across the mountains to return to Kharkhorin, a small town that was once the centre of the Mongol Empire.
Could be enjoyed by anyone who rides regularly. The roads are generally rough jeep tracks, rather potholed in parts and with several river crossings. Classed as 100% off road with vehicle support. Outside Ulaanbaatar we will camp in Western-style tents, or stay at ger camps (traditional nomadic “ger” dwelling with nearby shower and toilet facilities).
Tour follows the Orkhon river valley and ends at Kharkhorin
Arrive in Ulaanbaatar and go to hotel. Afternoon at leisure to enjoy the shops and restaurants of the city, or just relax. Overnight in hotel.
A long days drive by jeep from Ulaanbaatar through the provinces of Tuv and Arkhangai to reach the start point of the ride at Tsenkher. Overnight camping beside the 'Tsenkher' river.
Assemble the bikes and start riding along the road to Tsetserleg, the main town of Arkhangai province. Take lunch in a local restaurant then ride up into the mountains, crossing three passes, to arrive at the ger camp. There are 'Hot Mineral Springs' here and you can bathe outside in the pools.
Ride along lush green valleys grazed by yaks and sheep, home to many nomadic families who might invite you into their ger for a bowl of “airag” (fermented mare’s milk). Ride over 'Bogoch pass ' to reach the Tsetserleg river by which we set up camp.
Continue riding through gorgeous scenery up to 'Ultiin Pass', and on through mountains of gold (which is mined in these mountains), to reach Khayasaan gorge. Overnight camping.
Follow the Orkhon river to the magnificent 'Orkhon Waterfall' and spend the evening enjoying this beautiful spot. Overnight camping.
Continue along the valley, with several 'River Crossings' then northwards up into the hills of Batulzii District. Overnight camping.
