Leaving the city from the eastern side, we ride for approximately 25km on the main road to Baganuur before branching off onto rough jeep tracks across the open rolling plains.

Most of the population in the countryside still live a nomadic or semi-nomadic existence, moving frequently with their herds of animals. Nevertheless, in recent years many families have moved to the city, so we may ride for a considerable distance across the wild and beautiful land without encountering people or vehicles.

On this 4-day circular route we travel over 1000 kilometres and will visit the unusual granite mountain at Baga Gazriin Chuluu, the ruins of Ongi Khiid monastery, and another beautiful mountain, Zorgol Khairkhan nearby the sand dunes at Ovorburd Els. Accommodation will be at traditional ger camps with all meals provided and support vehicles will carry the luggage, equipment and staff.

This itinerary is suitable for experienced riders, preferably with some off-road experience. Mostly the trail follows rough jeep tracks, but we do ride some distance on tarmac.

Non-riders are welcome to join the group and can travel in one of the support vehicles.
