Nomad's Trail Motorcycle Tour 

Throughout history, the nomadic people of Mongolia have moved with their herds to find better conditions, or to trade for basic necessities. Ulaanbaatar was the central trading point on the route from Russia to China, where furs were exchanged for silk and tea. Travel from east to west by merchants and tradesmen was encouraged during the Mongol Empire because the local nomadic people needed to trade for weapons, pots and cloth which they did not make themselves. This motorcycle trail encompasses some of those ancient routes, and the Buddhist monasteries along the way which were the only permanent settlements.

Riding Terrain and Facilities

Mongolia’s wild open spaces completely lend themselves to the challenge of off-road motorcycle riding. The terrain on this Nomad’s Trail routes are 65% off-road includes rough jeep tracks, hard-pack, loose gravel, rock, mud and river crossings. Experience is required because the route is remote and far from good medical facilities. Accommodation is at traditional 'GER' camps with decent facilities, located in the most beautiful places.

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.

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 bikes are allocated and we set off. This is a long first day, nearly all off-road, arriving late afternoon at the ger camp situated at the foot of the dramatic granite   'Khogno Khan' mountain.

A one hour ride on the tarmac brings us to   'Kharkhorin', once the focal point of the Mongol Empire. Visit Erdene Zuu which at one time was the largest Buddhist monastery in Mongolia. Ride to Tsetserleg for lunch, then over Bulgan mountain to a ger camp beside the Tamir river   'Taikhar Chuluu'. Overnight 'Ger' camp.

We take a roundabout remote off-road trail through the mountains get to the White Lake, stopping at the   'Khorgo Volcano' to climb to the top for the most magnificent view. Overnight   'White Lake' lakeside 'Ger' camp.

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 'Ger' camp.

We are now in the province known as Khovsgol, a beautiful mountainous region with several major rivers. 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 to the region of   'Sharga Lake' in Bulgan Province and spend the night at a remote   'Ecolodge Ger' camp.

Ride south to the freshwater   'Ugii Lake' located in the hills of Arkhangai province. The lake is home to many species of fish and water birds. Overnight 'Ger' camp near the lake.

Return to Ulaanbaatar, stopping for a picnic lunch along the way. The first 25 km are across open steppe on the rough tracks we have become used to. After "Dashinchilen" the road (Millenium Road) has been   'surfaced', so the final stretch to the city should be a bit quicker.   'Overnight in hotel'.
