Nomad's Trail Motorcycle Tour 

This "Nomad's Trail" is our newest, most varied and longest motorcycle tour, 2100 km over 9-days riding, with maximum off-road. It is our only itinerary that has mixed accommodation along the way: the ger camps we have chosen are in beautiful and dramatic locations, whilst the nights camping in tents are in unique places where tourists never travel. The circular route passes through Kharkhorin, ancient capital of Mongolia, through fertile Arkhangai province where the nomadic people have yaks and horses, past the White Lake then northwards to mountainous Khovsgol region.

Tour Highlights

Five Rivers, Northern Mongolia
Location: Norhern Mongolia

Five Rivers

In the north of Mongolia, between three of the largest mountain ranges, lies the junction of five major rivers: Delgermurun, Bugsei, Ider, Chuluut and Selenge Murun. The beauty and remoteness of this place are remarkable and one night spent in a luxury ger camp under the stars will be one of the highlights of the trip.

Enduro Trails Mongolia
Location: Central Mongolia


These days about a quarter of the population are still nomadic, living in traditional gers (yurts) and moving frequently with their herds of animals. See how people work with their livestock, their horse-riding skills and religious practices and traditions. Visitors traveling and enjoying their country are always made welcome.

Location: Central Mongolia

White Lake

“Terkhiin Tsagaan Nuur” in the Khangai mountains of Central Mongolia lies at an altitude of 2060 meters. It was created many millennia ago when torrents of lava from the nearby Khorgo volcano blocked the north and south Terkh rivers forming a damned lake. The water is crystal clear and home to many species of fish and birds.

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.

The motorbikes are allocated and we set off. Start riding south-west across the rolling hills of Tuv "Central" province. We pass through only a couple of villages and most families are living the nomadic lifestyle. Overnight wild camping near in   'Buren' mountain.

Ride to Kharkhorin, the original capital of Mongolia and visit   'Erdene Zuu'  monastery. This was the first and most important Buddhist monastery in the country, founded in the 16th century. Afternoon continue westwards and overnight wild camping near 'Tuvshruulekh'.

Ride through Tsetserleg town, then through remote valleys along the   'Chuluut'  river gorge. Enter the national park and ride past Khorgo volcano to reach the ger camp right beside Terkhiin Tsagaan Nuur, the   'White Lake'.

Ride northwards through lovely and varied scenery, over   'Tarvagtai Davaa' and on to Jargalant village, famous for being the birthplace of Undur Gongor, the tallest man in Mongolia; he lived in the early 20th century and stood at 2.36 meters tall. Overnight camp beside   'Zurkh Lake'.

We are now in the province known as Khovsgol, a beautiful mountainous region that borders Siberia and has several major rivers which flow north into Lake Baikal. Near the point where   'Five Rivers' meet is a ger camp and here is where we spend the evening, surrounded by spectacular scenery. Overnight 'Ger' camp.

Continuing clockwise “with the sun”, we travel southwards, initially on tarmac road, to the region of   'Bulgan Province'  and spend the night wild camping in remote mountains of Arkhangai Province in near Khanui River, far from any of the regular tourist trails. Overnight camping near   'Khanui River'.

Ride southwards and along a very pretty part of a belt of sand dunes which stretches for 80 km through the   'fertile'  grassy hills of Uvurkhangai province. The sandy track is quiet and remote, not much used even by local people. Emerge at the dramatic granite mountain of Khogno Khan. Overnight   'Khogno Khan'  ger camp.

Set out from Khogno Khan mountain, riding about 50 km on the main highway, then turning off onto   'rough tracks', in a north easterly direction. Ride through the sparsely populated hills and open steppe to reach Uvurburd Els, another desert area with sand dunes. Overnight    'Uvurburd Els' ger camp.

Returning to Ulaanbaatar the final stretch to the city is on   'surfaced road', stopping for a picnic lunch along the way. Arrive afternoon and transfer back to the city.    'Overnight in hotel'.
