Cycling through the raw beauty of Mongolia`s grasslands is quite simply surreal, in every sense. You will be as far away from civilization as you get, feeling like you may have been whisked away to another world as you ride the rolling, rugged terrain and take in the starkly beautiful landscape.

This one can be hard work, but it will be well worth it when you come across the enchanting nomadic communities along the way. Whether the locals ride shotgun with you on horse or a hairy yak, or whether they seem to want to swap their wildlife for your wheels, one thing is certain: they will be just as fascinated by you as you are them and, in fact, they will most likely think you are mad.

The culture and charm of the Mongolian`s nomadic way of life will humble you. The excitement and adrenalin of your ride will pump you. Every so often, as an eagle swoops overhead in the deepest blue sky you will ever see, or a local sings you another love song about his animals, you may just have to pinch yourself. And try as you might, you just can't stop smiling.

This is living at its most raw, right down to our nightly camp sites under incredible star lit canopies, sitting around the fire swapping stories or listening to local tales from your guide.
