The great motorized ride

Drive a Royal Enfield and tackle the Mongolian steppes! You'll ride on the huge Mongolian stretches and will discover the picturesque landscapes of the country. This is an accessible moto tour that offers every night a comfortable yurt and warm showers.

An Occidental experienced guide, a mechanic and the assistance vehicle will, of course, come with you on the tour.

Day 1. Arrival at Ulan Bator and visit of the city

  • Arrival at the airport, meeting with our driver. Transfer to your hotel, settling in, and rest.

Day 2. We're off on the adventure!

Ulan Bator - Dashinchilen
  • Breakfast early in the morning before going with a van towards West Ulan Bator to discover our Royal Enfield. The adventure begins prudently because, even if we're not in the centre of Ulan Batoranymore, traffic is still heavy. Then we take a good tarred road across the steppes until West. First herds, first nomads yurts, will be seen during this first day.
  • Night in the only hotel of the small village of Dasinchinlen. Although it's a countryside hotel, it has the advantage to propose warm showers.

Day 3. A steppe lake is our scenary

Dashinchilen - Ogii lake
  • We still ride towards West on a very good road, before tasting the joys of the Mongolian track. We feel we are farther and farther when we reach Lake Ögii. Nestled in the middle of the steppe, this small fish=rich lake attracts many migrant birds that birds lovers can watch at leisure. We'll spend the end of the day by the lake, walking or resting in the yurt. Those who wish can also hire fish equipment and try to catch a beautiful pike.

Day 4. Track until hot springs

Ogii lake - Tsenkher hot springs
  • The early birds will enjoy a wonderful sunrise on the lake, before taking, not the road, but the track. We enconter many nomads and the track gets more and more hilly when we go closer to Tsenkher hot springs.

Day 5-6. Among nomads in Orkhon Valley

Tsenkher hot springs - Orkhon valley
  • Track towards Orkhon Valley. This valley is inscribed on UNESCO World Heritage List, it's a land of nomadism where many breeders set up camp each summer. The landscape is more and more mountainous and wooded. We join a nomads family in the heart of the valley.
Day 5
  • Visit of Ulan Tsutgalaan falls, white flood flowing on the black stone, transformed in rainbow by a short sunray... These 16-metres (52,49 feet) falls are just magic ! They formed 20.000 years ago, as a result of a unique combination of earthquakes and volcano eruptions.
Day 6

Day 7. Culture stop in the former Mongolian capital

Orkhon valley - Kharkhorin
