Genghis Khan Motorcycle Trail

Genghis Khan was born in Dadal near to the Siberian border in the north east corner of Mongolia. This is a beautiful area of mountains, forest, lakes and wide rivers. It is also of immense historical significance and we will visit the places where Genghis Khan lived before he became leader of his people and moved his capital to Kharkhorin in Central Mongolia. The 1300km ride from Ulaanbaatar to the small village of Dadal and return is an experience of wilderness and culture that would be hard to beat elsewhere.

Riding Terrain and Facilities


Some riding on the first and last days of the trip are on a new black topped road, but for the rest of the tour we follow rough jeep tracks on packed mud or rock. The 1300km ride from Ulaanbaatar to the small village of Dadal is an experience of wilderness and culture that would be hard to beat elsewhere. There may be some river crossings (depends on recent weather conditions), although we travel out of our way to find bridges to cross the big rivers. All nights on tour are spent in the wild, camping in tents. Some days are long and require stamina.

  Take-Into Consideration !

"Please note that nowadays there are a few competitor motorcycle companies offering the same or similar tours. Some have copied our "Genghis Khan Motorcycle Trail" and website content, given it a new name and advertised it as their own tour, at a cheaper price, perhaps without having tried and tested the route"

GENGHIS KHAN TOUR MAP

Mongolia is a great place for a motorcycle tour, but it is only suitable for confident riders with off-road experience. The routes are too remote and the terrain too rough for beginners. In parts of the country where there are no facilities for tourists we camp in the wilderness.

Day By Day Itinerary


This itinerary is suitable for experienced riders, preferably with some off-road experience  

Arrive in   'Ulaanbaatar' and go to hotel. Afternoon or evening meet the tour leader and rest of group. Start pre tour meeting. Meeting talks about day by day itinerary and safety issues. Overnight in hotel.

Set off eastwards towards Khentii Province, stopping for lunch at the huge silver statue of   'Genghis Khan' on his horse. Leave the main black-topped road before the village of Tsenkher Mandal and ride over the mountains to arrive at the small   'Khukh Nuur' (“Blue Lake”). Camp.

Ride on rough jeep tracks through silver birch forest and open rocky hilltops through  'Binder' District to an ancient King’s graveyard in the mountains. There is little left to see of the cemetery, but interesting to note the historical importance of this area. Overnight camping.

Not far from our campsite are some bronze-age rock paintings which we stop to see before riding on to Bayan Adraga village beside the wide   'Onon' river. Ride through a beautiful forested area and camp before the bridge. Overnight camping.

Cross the Onon river near the entrance to Onon-Balj National Park, then ride north a short distance to Dadal village where Genghis Khan was born in 1162. Where his mother’s ger once stood there is now a small lake and not far away there is an excellent viewpoint called   'Deluun Boldog'. Drive to Norovlin district to camp. Overnight ger camp.

Drive across the fertile open hills of Batnorov district and through the village to reach Onderkhaan, the capital of Khentii province located beside the   'Kherlen River'. Overnight camping on a mountainside outside the town.

"A big thank you to you all, it was a great trip and I really enjoyed it. The organisation in Mongolia was first class, we were always looked after and as it turned out the doctors services were required more than was anticipated. "
