Middle Gobi Motorcycle Trail

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.

Middle Gobi Motorcycle Video

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."
