D1 / Ulan Bator airport - Moron

You set foot in Mongolia and know that you’re about to embark on one of the most beautiful adventures of your life. Early morning departure from Ulan Bator airport and transfer to Moron in a private vehicle. We drive through the steppe enveloped in a white coat of snow.

D2 / Moron - Hatgal - 55 miles

It’s time to leave for Hatgal on a good tarmac road, allowing you to get used to the highly nimble steering of Royal Enfield sidecars. We discover the Mongolian national fleet which remain docked for the winter before enjoying the sunset on the ice mirror. Time seems to have stopped here.

D3 / Hatgal - Jigleg - 62 miles

We glide on an ice cover which is sometimes smooth and sometimes rough towards the western part of the Lake. Every 45 minutes, we stop to check our hands and feet and warm ourselves with a good coffee. We look after each other; in extreme conditions, team spirit is essential to reach the goal all together safe and sound.

D4 / Jigleg - Hanh - 62 miles

We set off in the direction of Hanh, the highest village in the region, close to the Siberian border. We have to continue to be vigilant. Sometimes, the ice breaks and blocks of ice collide with each other making disturbing noises. Our team there will keep a close eye in order to ensure that it is possible to continue.

D5 / Hanh - Modon Huis - 62 miles

We enter coniferous forests covered with snow hoping that the powder snow is not too deep and that we do not accidentally venture onto the river whose top layer would not be frozen enough.

D6 / Modon Huis - Hatga - 62 miles

Accustomed to the cold, we will take what will come by remaining vigilant about eventual cracks. Confident, we push the Royal Enfields into the turns like a goodbye to this eternal lake. Back on the motorbike, we are amused to rediscover what normal steering of a sidecar is for our friends back home.

D7 / Hatgal - Moron - 55 miles

An extra day to account for uncertainties during our journey. If everything goes as per schedule, we’ll use the last day to make one more round of the frozen lake among the ships before hitting the road towards Moron and a hot shower.

D8 / Moron - Uan Bator

Today we set off for Ulan Bator in a Uaz (a Russian van). Whatever the weather, the quality of the ice, the mechanical troubles that we might have had, there is no doubt that at this moment you know that this journey will remain unforgettable. A unique adventure that only few adventurer-seekers would dare to try.

D9 / Ulan Bator airport

Transfer to the airport. We return back home with a head full of memories.

The riders' opinions

Brian Marris
Awesome company, excellent value for money.

“This company provides excellent value for many, superb organisation, brilliant bikes and fabulous staff. We could not fault our experience.”

A truly memorable trip

“A really fun, well organised ride that was designed to give us some riding excitement, a good look at some interesting parts of India and comfortable accommodation at the end of each day. Our tour leader was wonderful and clearly had in mind the well being of the riders. We had no problems with the bikes at all, but had a mechanic along just in case. Would I go again? Yes, very happily. Would I recommend it? Absolutely, but probably only to people who had some reasonable riding experience.”

Simply great!

“Simply great!”
