D2 / Ulan Bator - Dashinchilen - 137 miles

After an early breakfast, you meet your tour leader. We’re transferred about 19 miles in a private vehicle, where we collect our bikes and it’s time to set off on our adventure! We take a superb road through the steppes with the mountains as a backdrop and come across flocks of sheep, cows and goats in our path. We spend the night at the village's only guesthouse!

D3 / Dashinchilen - Ogii Nuur - 87 miles

We set off this morning on a beautiful road through the steppes, before riding a small, unpredictable track. We’ll experience a dash of adventure before reaching our destination early afternoon: a yurt camp on the shores of Ogii Nuur lake, nestled at the foot of the mountains. Spend the rest of the afternoon at your leisure: take a walk by the lake or rest in your yurt.

D4 / Ogii Nuur - Tsenkher Hot Spring - 87 miles

Sunrise at Ogii Nuur lake is worth getting up early for. We take a track through the heart of the steppes, which stretches as far as the eye can see. First, we pass unspoilt, virgin countryside and then we spot nomad yurts dotted here and there. The track enters hillier terrain on the approach to our yurt camp, where we will enjoy an early-evening soak in the hot springs.

D5 / Tsenkher Hot Spring - Orkhon Valley - 87 miles

The trail takes us to the heart of the Orkhon Valley. The steppe gradually turns into the rolling scenery of the volcanic Khangai Mountains. We reach our hosts' homes in mid-afternoon. We stay in yurts, discovering all the charms of nomad life.

D8 / Karakorum - Khogno Khan - 68 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.

D9 / Khogno Khan - Ulan Bator - 180 miles

We take the road 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, where you can have a free evening.

D10 / 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.
