It is also of immense historical significance and we will visit the places where Genghis Khan lived until he became leader of his people and moved his capital to Kharkhorin in Central Mongolia.

Apart from the last day of the trip, which is on tarmac, we follow rough jeep tracks on packed mud or rock all the way. There may be some river crossings (depends on recent weather conditions), although we travel out of our way to find bridges to cross the big rivers. All nights on tour are spent in the wild, camping in tents and we cover a distance of approximately 1300 kilometres in 6 days.
