D2 / Ulan Bator - Dashinchilen - 220 Km

We meet up with our tour leader, then time for the big departure! We take a superb road through the steppe, with mountain backdrop. From time to time, an eagle awaits us on a roadside pylon, flying off as we approach.

D3 / Dashinchilen - Ogii Nuur - 140 Km

We set off this morning on a beautiful road through the steppe, before riding on a small, unpredictable trail - a dash of adventure before reaching the yurt camp on the shores of Ogii Nuur Lake, nestled at the foot of the mountains. Night at the camp.

D4 / Ogii Nuur - Tsenkher - 140 Km

An early start by Ogii Nur Lake, offering a superb viewpoint. We ride along a trail through the heart of the steppe, which stretches endlessly ahead. At first pristine, then dotted with a few nomads' yurts, the trail enters hillier terrain as we reach our yurt camp. An early-evening soak in the hot springs will be much appreciated.

D5 / Tsenkher - Orkhon Valley - 100 Km

The trail leads us into the heart of the Orkhon River Valley, and the landscapes become ever more mountainous. The steppe gradually changes into the rolling scenery of the volcanic Khangai Mountains. We arrive in mid-afternoon at our hosts' place, near the Orkhon Falls.

D6 / Orkhon Valley - 50 Km

This morning, we leave our bikes and sidecars back at base, and explore the steppe. With several guides, we go horse-riding in one of the country's most beautiful valleys - an unforgettable experience. In mid-afternoon, back in the saddle for a 90-minute cruise through the valley.

D7 / Orkhon Valley - Karakorum - 100 Km

In early morning, we climb onto our Royal Enfields and ride straight north to the ancient capital of Gengis Khan's empire, on superb trails then a smooth asphalt road. Night in a yurt camp.

D8 / Karakorum - Khogno Khan - 110 Km

The marmots among you can enjoy a lie-in! After lunch, we take an asphalt road to the dunes of Khogno Khan. The winds coming off the steppe convey the sand to the foot of the mountains - a place known as "Little Gobi''.

D9 / Khogno Khan - Ulan Bator - 290 Km

We ride the road to Ulan Bator - a superb ribbon of asphalt along the desert plain, then the steppe. One last day immersed in these mind-blowing landscapes. We reach the capital at day's end.

A free day for those with a late flight. We'll savour the unique atmosphere of the capital, both rough and warmly welcoming. Ulan Bator won't leave you cold. Transfer to the airport.

The riders' opinions

Suresh Yeraballi
Lifetime experience riding across Rajasthan, India.

“Vintage Rides represented by Denise had tailormade a bike route in Rajasthan for four of us and I should say they have planned the trip so meticulously that everything went so seamlessly and gave us an experience of a lifetime, in terms of riding and the stay at some awesome places. They have mint condition bikes and an excellent team onboard, who are best in what they do and a note of thanks to the team leader Sid and support staff Ashraf, without whom the trip would have been incomplete. Cheers!”

Johnny, Newbury (UK)
Excellent organisation

“Excellent organisation. I found everybody that I dealt with to be very professional and most helpful, both at the planning stage and during the trip. I'd definitely recommend Vintage, and will undoubtedly use them for any future trips I'm able to undertake.”

Vintage Rides SrI Lanka

“I was born in Sri Lanka but I was taken to parts I didn't know existed. Excellent knowledge of which routes to take to avoid the sometimes hellish traffic. The bikes were great fun : this is despite me being 125 kilos on a 350 - impressed ! They seem to be constantly reviewing their hotels which can only mean a better experience I would recommend this company to my biking friends”
