The least populated country in the world is the stage for an epic ride like none other that we do. Once we leave the capitol city of Ulaanbaatar we stay in local ger (yurt) camps for our entire time out on tour. The majority of this trip is on gravel road or jeep track, and off road experience is required. Rest days at the Gobi desert’s singing sand dunes and another at the hot springs, we will get a fascinating glimpse into rural Mongolia. This ride is guided and fully supported.   This is not 2-up trip, but non-riders are welcome to ride in a private chase truck. (2200 kms/ 1400 miles).

  • Offroad heaven
  • 90% double track off road riding
