Genghis Khan Motorcycle Trail

Genghis Khan was born in "Dadal" village 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 1300 km 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

Most of the tour is on rough jeep tracks, hard pack, rock and loose gravel, although riding on the last day of the trip is unavoidably on a new black topped road. The 1300 km return ride from Ulaanbaatar to the small village of Dadal is an experience of wilderness and culture that would be hard to beat elsewhere. There will be some river crossings, so technical skill and experience are required, 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.
