Taste of Mongolia Mountain Biking Tour

The cycling tour is a leisurely exploration of Khan Khenty strictly protected area which marks the southernmost tip of Siberia and is covered with pine and cedar forests. This 2mln hectare region is home to typical wildlife of Siberia: from squirrels and sables to bears and deer. The tour offers an inmost access to raw natural beauty as well as close insight to the life of nomadic herders.

Arrival to Ulaanbaatar, guided city tour

Arrival in Ulaanbaatar and transfer to 4* hotel in city center. Welcome dinner and trip orientation in the evening. (Dinner, hotel)

Ulaanbaatar capital, 1 night

Bike to Tuul river

1.5 hour car transfer east of Ulaanbaatar brings you to Genghis Khan’s 40 meter mounted statue signifying the gateway to his homeland. While bikes are being readied take a panoramic view of the surrounding steppe and mountains from an observation deck on the horses head. We then start riding along the Tuul river, a major river that empties in to lake Baikal in Russia. We cycle across rolling hills and lush meadows with some wooded mountains as a backdrop. Invariably we ride on smooth car tracks, at times slightly sandy and at times muddy depending on how much rain had fallen. As you bike you will catch a glimpse of a life that has seemingly not changed for a few hundred years. Large flocks of yaks, sheep and goats roam the area and circular tents of local herders can be seen from time to time. This morning as a warm up we have a few insignificant uphills and after lunch climb up to a wooded pass at 1887m. The effort is rewarded by spectacular views over wide valleys and forested mountains and a long descent to the Tuul river bank. Here we erect our tents and take a shower before dinner. (Breakfast, lunch, dinner, tent) Read more

Tuul river, 1 night

Bike to Bayangol valley

The whole of the morning we ride upstream along the Tuul river on smooth but at times muddy tracks. A few small stream crossings lie on your way. Around lunch time we reach the highest point of the day. After lunch we enjoy a long downhill followed by 20km easy roll across a wide valley that will bring us to our 2nd campsite. Today we will satisfy your curiosity by stopping at a nomadic family tent and introduce you to “whats, hows and whys” of Mongolian nomads. (Breakfast, lunch, dinner, tent) Read more

tent camp, 1 night

"XIII century Mongol" park

We continue riding across more open grassland to the "Mongolia in XIII century" theme park. It consists of several stations each showcasing an aspect of medieval life of Mongolia. "Horse relay station" is where you can get your photo taken in traditional clothes and armor, "Craftsmen camp" introduces you to traditional smith, wood and leather work, at the "Educational camp" visitor are introduced to traditional calligraphy and games. The last station is the "Khan's Palace" - a huge ornate ger decorated with medieval costumes and warrior implements. Here you may try royal costumes on and test your archery skills etc. Each station is about 500m from each other so we take short rides to visit them. After completing the visits we climb to the top of a local highest mountain to a campsite that offers 360 degree panoramic view. The climb is a 9km gradual ascent on grassy tracks. Dinner and overnight. (Breakfast, lunch, dinner, tent) Read more

tent camp, 1 night

Bike to Nalaikh plain

Last cycling day. Again we take easy ups and downs across grassland. We will serve a snack stop nearby some granite boulders as a backdrop before taking the highest climb of the tour at 1830meters above sea level. Weather permitting we have lunch at the top of the pass and enjoy great panoramic views of Mongolian steppe land. A 3km steep descent is ridden by rain water ditches so use your breaks!!! When at the bottom of the descent we roll for another 20km across grassland with no significant ascents. Here we load bikes and take a 2 hour return transfer back to Ulaanbaatar and to your hotel. In the evening we all gather for a farewell dinner. (Breakfast, lunch, dinner, hotel) Read more

Batbayar, On behalf of the six of us, I just wanted to thank you for organizing a fantastic trip to Mongolia. We really enjoyed all aspects of our trip and thank you for working with us to design a trip that enabled us to see and explore so much of the great country in a short amount of time. Also, Jack did a fantastic job as a guide, and we enjoyed spending time with the three drivers as well. We all have said we will highly recommend this trip and working with your company to our friends back home. Thanks for all the help. Read more

Dear Batbayar, Just a quick email to let you know we have safely returned to Shanghai after an amazing trip to Mongolia. I wanted to thank you for planning an excellent trip for us. We experienced many wonderful things and had a fantastic time living with nomadic families and seeing the beautiful countryside. Our trip was made even more enjoyable because of the experience of both the guide and the driver. They did an excellent job making sure we experienced everything that Mongolian culture had to offer. Mogy, our guide, was informative and friendly and looked after us extremely well. He is a very valuable asset to your company. He works very well with the driver too, who we named James. They make an excellent team. We felt very safe in the hands of James when he was driving through the countryside on small dirt roads. His navigation skills are amazing, always reliable and accurate. It was due to their skill and expertise that our trip was particularly successful. Thank you again Mongolian Trekking for serving us so well. A very special thank you to Jack and James. We will certainly recommend your company to any friends and family who are planning to visit Mongolia and when we return in the future we will definitely be contacting you. Best wishes. Read more

Hi Bat, Sorry it has taken me so long to reply to you... I was going to come in on Monday before we left and tell you how great the trip was but we ran out of time as we went back out to the CHCF Ger Village to play with the kids... The trip was amazing... Mongolia is one beautiful country and the people just add to this! Chookaa and Umba were brilliant... I can't speak more highly. It was like traveling with two additional friends on the trip. We had such a great laugh with them both, sung, drunk vodka, laughed and just generally learnt a lot about the culture and Mongolia from them both! We even made Chookaa leave one night and made Umba try to explain the next day to us in english once we thought we had the right plan we got her to come back in and check (was very very funny)! When we come back next year on the school trip I would LOVE to have them both come along on the few days we travel to the Ger camp... I miss them both a lot and Mongolia already! Can you please email me a postal address to send some photos through to Chookaa as she has some names of people we need to try and get them to in the countryside! Thank you so much for organising the trip and sending great people with us I am looking forward to next year already! Thanks again. Read more
