Tailor Made Itinerary - 3

Orkhon Valley In Central Mongolia (Mountain Biking)


  • The tour begins on the edge of the Khangai mountains,

    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.

    This ride is not technically difficult

    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).
