We set off on a beautiful road through the steppe - a spot of adventure en route to our yurt camp, on the shores of Ogii Nuur Lake, nestled at the foot of the mountains. Late afternoon is free: take a lakeside walk, or rest in the yurt.
An exceptional day in store, with landscapes to blow your mind. We ride through three valleys to join the town of Tsertseleg. The trails are in good nick, but can be a bit tricky when crossing passes.
An early start for a 120km ride on asphalt roads to the volcanic region of Terkhiin Tsagaan, or the "White Lake". Only the last 40km is trails. Night in a lakeside yurt camp.
A day devoted to discovering the region of the White Lake, with visits to the crater and a few caves. Picnic by a waterfall.
We depart in the opposite direction, towards the hot springs of Tsenkher. After 160km along a beautiful road, we end the day on superb trails crossing three passes.

Today we discover the lives of the nomadic herders, switching saddles to survey the steppe. Accompanied by several guides, we go riding in one of the country's most beautiful valleys.
In early morning, we board our Royal Enfields and ride straight north to the ancient capital of Genghis Khan's empire, on a superb trail then a smooth asphalt road. Night in a yurt camp.
Visit to the city's archaeological museum and temple, which testify to the glorious past of this empire of the steppe. After lunch, off to the dunes of Khogno Khan on an asphalt road. Night in a yurt camp.
We take a superb ribbon of asphalt across the desert plain, then the steppe - one last day immersed in these spectacular landscapes. We reach Ulan Bator in late afternoon, and transfer to the hotel.
A free day for those with a late-afternoon flight. We make the most of the unique atmosphere of this capital, which leaves no one indifferent. A taxi will take you directly from hotel to airport.
“A wonderful and memorable experience. The 12 day tour that my wife (pillion) and I went on in Madhya Pradesh was very well planned, with interesting and sometimes challenging rides and sight-seeing during the day and comfortable, culturally fascinating places to stay in at night. Our tour leader was experienced, organised, had a fun personality and managed to respond to each member of the tour as an individual. We highly recommend Vintage Rides to anyone with a sense of adventure and competent motorcycle skills. Laurie and Jennie McAdam”
“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.”
“I would recommend Vintage Rides to any rider contemplating a guided motorcycle tour. Right from my initial email with Denise, the professionalism and attention to detail was reassuring. Everything was organised for us and our tour guide Josh was fantastic from start to finish. The Royal Enfields were a lot of fun and suited the type of riding we did, the scenery was simply mind blowing and the tour was the best holiday and adventure ever. On top of all this, the value for money was excellent. I will be touring with Vintage Rides again. I did the Trans Himalayan in India.”
