D2 / Ulan Bator - Hustai - 56 miles

We’re taken about 6 miles in a private vehicle, where we jump on our Royal Enfields and off we go! We take a superb asphalt road through the valley with vastness stretching out as far as the eye can see. This first day is the perfect introduction to Mongolia’s picturesque landscapes. We arrive at Hustai national park early in the afternoon and discover the Taki: wild horses that can only be found in Mongolia.

D3 / Hustai - Ogii Nuur - 186 miles

We set off this morning on a beautiful road cruising through the steppes, before riding a small, unpredictable track. We’ll experience a dash of adventure before reaching our destination: a yurt camp on the shores of Ogii Nuur lake nestled at the foot of the mountains. We arrive mid-afternoon and you have some free time to take a walk around the lake or just relax in the yurt.

D4 / Ogii Nuur - Tsertserleg - 81 miles

Sunrise at Ogii Nuur lake is worth getting up early for. An exceptional riding day: the landscapes we will see today are simply stunning. We cross three valleys to get to the city of Tsetserleg. On the way, we stop for a picnic outside Tuvshruulekh. The tracks are fine but can get a little tricky on the passes. We cross our first fords.

D5 / Tsertserleg - Terkhiin Tsagaan - 112 miles

We make an early start to head for the westernmost point of the trip: Terkhiin Tsagaan Nuur, also known as White Lake. A few miles after the start of the leg, we cross fords and passes but find ourselves back on tarmacked road for the remaining three quarters. The White Lake and our yurt camp stand before us, where we will spend two nights.

D7 / Terkhiin Tsagaan - Tsenkher - 112 miles

We go back the way we came and head towards Tsenkher’s hot springs. But fear not! With the steppes bathed in the morning rays, it seems like a completely different road. We end the day with 12 miles of superb tracks, going over three small passes and crossing several fords before reaching our camp, where we will stay for two nights.

The track takes us to the Orkhon river valley, where the landscape becomes more mountainous. The steppes gradually give way to the rugged foothills of the Khanghai volcanic mountains. By mid-afternoon, we arrive near the Orkhon waterfalls, where we will stay with our Mongolian hosts and discover the charms of nomadic life.

We head north on wonderful tracks. We cruise along the Orkhon river and the steppes unfold before us. By lunchtime, we arrive at the ancient capital of Genghis Khan’s empire: Karakorum. We spend the afternoon immersing ourselves in this capital’s history and visit its monastery.

D12 / Karakorum - Khogno Khan - 62 miles

You can enjoy a lie in today, if you’re that way inclined! If not, you can visit the archaeological museum and the city’s temple, which are living proof of the steppes’ glorious past. After lunch, we take an asphalt road to the Khogno Khan dunes. The steppe winds carry the sand to the foot of the mountains, giving it the nickname "Mini Gobi'' after the desert.

D13 / Khogno Khan - Ulan Bator - 168 miles

We make our way back to Ulan Bator on a wonderful stretch of asphalt crossing the desert plains, then the steppes. This is our last day to soak up these mind-blowing landscapes. We end the day in the capital. You’re transferred to the hotel and you have a free evening.

D14 / Ulan Bator

Those with a late flight can have a free day in the city. You can enjoy the capital’s unique atmosphere, which is both harsh and welcoming at the same time. Ulan Bator is one of those cities that everyone has an opinion about. A taxi will take you to the airport, where our services end.
