Please note that routes may vary as most of Mongolia has no formed roads, and day-to-day hazards mean that we may have to change our proposed route. This is a preliminary itinerary only and we reserve the right to make changes. Kilometres given are approximations only.
Day 1: Arrive Ulaan Baatar, Mongolia. Arrive Mongolia; you will be met by our Crew and myself. Depending on arrival numbers, pick up will be by Bus or car. Check into Hotel and settle in, meet for welcome dinner and go over route.
Day 2: Ulaan Baater – Lake Egginuur (220 Km). Time to be introduced to your bikes, and we have an early start and bus ride from Ulaan Baatar to the Workshop. It won’t take long before we are on the dirt trails and heading west. Conditions vary considerably, a good opportunity to get accustomed to the bike, and the riding conditions. Late in the day the scenery changes to desert, sand dunes and camels as we enter the far northern Gobi region.

Day 8: Horse Camp – Workshop (100 Km). Up early is the best time to try and see the Przewalski’s wild horse, only a few 100 of these animals remain on the planet. The Przewalski horse - Takh in Mongolian - is the sole surviving genuine wild horse in the world, (not to be confused with, for instance, the mustang, a descendent from domestic breeds gone wild).
