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.

The riders' opinions

Great team offering a wide choice of …

“Great team offering a wide choice of rides. I selected northern Thailand, the golden triangle route. Well planned ride on good quality bike's, interesting and unique accommodation, well priced and well organised. No hesitation in recommending them and I am planning another trip for 2018 Neil UK”

We were a bunch of mates from Norwich …

“We were a bunch of mates from Norwich in the UK looking for something different on bikes. We decided to email 2 company's, Vintage rides and another Aussie outfit based in Nepal. Both company's provided a detailed route in the Mustang Valley in Nepal. The Aussie company was slightly cheaper but the bikes looked older and most importantly sending 20,000 euro's abroad to either company did not appeal to me! However Vintage rides payments are covered via our version of ABTA. The Aussie company payments were not. Easy choice for us. We arrived in Nepal to be greated by the coolest dude at the airport in leather jacket, ciggy in one hand , his name Francois. I can go on and bang on about what an experience the ride was which it was but if you are looking for a company to to have the ride of your life then Vintage rides is at the top of the game. All hotels were fantastic, we bumped into another British company half way up the Mustang valley and I have to say I was glad I had booked Vintage rides. The bike the Britsh had were all sorts of old Royal Enfields and the hotel they were in looked terrible, even the Britsh tour t-shirts they were wearing looked like they were from pound land ! Francois our gide put up with 8 middle aged blokes on a 12 day bender! One hotel we drunk dry !! Brexit was mentioned once or twice but we all decided the French are not so bad after all they can drink as well !! Francois new exactly where to take us ,he has done these trips most of his life. The support crew were 10 mins behind us all the time to fix puncures and fix bikes. Vintage rides is a company that know's what it is doiing and I would have no hesitation in booking another trip (Mongolia) again. A big thankyou to Francois and Denise for organising such a great trip. Roll on next year we are booking again. Doddy.”

Vintage Rides - Simply the Best.

“Having joined two tours in India previously with Vintage Rides I have no hesitation in booking a third and recommending this company as experts in their field to anyone contemplating a guided tour on the sub continent or the far east. Vintage Rides is a French company and as expected many of the riders are French speakers but it is not a barrier. I speak English and have only a little of the French language but I have been welcomed by both the tour leaders and the other riders without any problems at all. Communication is not a problem in the brotherhood off the bikers. The tour leaders know their stuff and take you to places off the well beaten tourist track, always mindful of one's safety. The support team for mechanical issues that can occasionally arise with the robust Royal Enfield 500cc Bullet bikes and for transport of luggage and local knowledge remove any concerns, just sit back and enjoy the ride.”
