Riding Terrain and Facilities

This 1600 km route will be a challenge: the track is often fast and other times it is rough and difficult so technical skill and stamina are required because the daily riding hours are long. The trip is in a remote part of ‘Ovorkhangai’ province and we travel south from Ulaanbaatar to the edge of the Gobi Desert, returning via a more mountainous landscape. If you need comfort or luxury of any kind, this trip is not for you ! Every night will be spent camping in tents in the wilderness and there are no washing or toilet facilities.

Master Rally Motorcycle Trail 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 there are no facilities for tourists so we camp in the wilderness.

Day By Day Itinerary

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

Arrive in   'Ulaanbaatar' and go to hotel. Evening meet the tour leader and rest of group for pre tour meeting. The meeting is about the day by day itinerary and safety issues. Overnight in hotel.

After allocating the bikes, set off from the city, riding first to   'Nalaikh', then going off-road. The landscape is open and hilly with several low passes to cross. There are some unusual granite rock formations and we stop in such a place at midday. After lunch continue riding to the village of "Bayan-Tsagaan" and set up camp in the surrounding hills.  'Overnight Camping'.

Ride through "Gobi Ugtaal" village then to the mountains known as   'Ikh Gazariin Chuluu' where the highest peaks are at an altitude of over 1760 meters. This is an amazing place with a dramatic skyline and is a very photogenic place to set up camp.  'Overnight Camping'.

Ride through   'Mandal_Gobi', capital of Middle Gobi province, then proceed towards the dark massif of   'Delgerkhangai' mountain, which we ride towards for several hours before arriving at the village of "Delgerkhangai" at the foot of the mountain. The road winds up into the mountains to the highest pass at 1502 meters altitude. This is another unexpected and exciting mountain range in the middle of the central    'Mongolian Steppe'. Exit the mountains and ride on mainly flat terrain in an increasingly remote wilderness, many tracks of which are not marked on maps at all.   'Overnight Camping'.

We ride parallel with a range of low rocky hills with many holes and caves in. As we approach the northern edge of the "Gobi Desert" the ground becomes sandy with many pink flowering grasses,    'Zag' trees and the   'Bactrian Camel'. Sometimes the track is sandy, but if it rains this turns to sticky clay making very difficult driving; occasionally the road has been destroyed by rain. Pass beside “Ulaan Khamariin Bulsh” whose red cliffs are an interesting feature on the landscape, while ahead lie the big dark    'Arts Bogdiin Nuruu' mountains. Arrive camp near the village of "Bogd". Overnight camping.

Now travelling northwards, many tracks   'criss-cross' the countryside, dividing and re-joining, or going off in another direction. Sometimes the road is in a very poor condition having been   'partly destroyed' by flooding, and after rain would be muddy and difficult to ride. Cross a bridge over the “Arguut” river and pass through several small villages before setting up camp in the hills leading to "Sant" village. Overnight camping.

From the village of "Sant" the scenery is pretty with fertile rolling hills and layer upon layer of mountains in the background. Some areas have unusually   'shaped rocks' and there are ancient graves are in the area of "Shireet" mountain. Ride to "Erdenedalai" village then north to the unusual   'Zorgol Khairkhan'  granite mountains in "Bayan-Unjuul" district. Overnight camping.

From the "Zorgol Khairkhan" mountains we ride to "Bayan-Unjuul" village and through the nearby sand dunes. Part of the distance covered today will be on the   'new tarmac road', to arrive in Ulaanbaatar on the east side of the city.   'Overnight hotel'.

Master Rally Trail Video

"Thank you for the experience, I had a great trip. Thoroughly enjoyed the off road riding and did not want the trip to end. Well worth seeing such a great unspoiled country. My riding partners were a great bunch of guys, especially as I did not know any of them before."
