On this circular route of 4 days riding we travel more than 1000 km's and will visit the unusual granite mountain at "Baga Gazar" Chuluu, temple remains at "Ongi Khiid" and another beautiful mountain, "Zorgol Khairkhan" nearby the sand dunes at "Ovurburd Els". Most of the population in the countryside still live a nomadic or semi-nomadic existence, moving frequently with their herds of animals. In recent years many families have moved to the city, so we may ride for a considerable distance across the wild and beautiful land without encountering any people or vehicles.
The terrain includes hard pack, loose gravel, rock and sand. There may be some river crossings or muddy sections depending on how much it has rained. There are some fast tracks as well as more technical parts and off-road experience is required to participate.
Overnight accommodation is at traditional ger camps which are all located in wild and beautiful places. There will be shower and washing facilities as well as a restaurant and bar at each camp.

Make an early start to get out of Ulaanbaatar city and onto the road leading south to the Gobi. The road is black-topped for a while, then soon becomes a rough jeep track as it crosses the green rolling hills of Tuv (“Central”) Province. Ride on to 'Baga Gazriin Chuluu', a mountain of unusual granite rocks which are home to ibex, 'Marmots', steppe fox and plenty of 'Birds' of prey. Overnight ger camp.
This off-road motorbike tour in the provinces of Tuv ("Central") and Dundgov ("Middle Gobi") is an excellent opportunity to experience Mongolia's vast grasslands and dramatic granite mountains.
The Middle Gobi region lies north of the true "Gobi Desert" and is an in-between region of fertile plains and dry desert-steppe with some sand dunes and desert vegetation.

'Middle Gobi', province is mainly steppe with some mountain regions, becoming part of the desert zone further south. There is a large variety of birds, animals and wild plants.
The circular route of 4 days covers over 1000 km's of open steppe, rocky mountains and desert plains. Mostly the trail follows rough jeep tracks, but we do ride a little distance on tarmac and a new road linking Ulaanbaatar to the "Gobi Desert" has recently been completed which we travel on at the end of the last day.
"The motorbikes were perfectly prepared. And the choice of the motorbike type (KTM EXC450 Six-Days) couldn´t be better. The best available bike for off-road experience! The route of the first day was very interesting and challenging."
