The Gobi is not just a desert, it is the desert! When you think of one of them, you probably see a huge piece of sand, 50ºC... Well, the Gobi is much more than this. High mountains, stepas, glaciers, sand, tracks, and ancient Mongolian towns will make this trip an amazing journey. Join 30 MPS Adventures to live this expedition in one of the most spectacular countries for adventure riding. Learn about this amazing culture and the great conqueror Chinggis Khaan, who led the world hundreds of years ago.
During the tour, you will stay in hotel rooms for two nights. The rest will be in Ger camps (the typical cozy Mongolian round tents) that have light and bed. The bathroom is located in the main building next to the Gers.
The most comfortable flight from Spain lands in Mongolia on Saturday morning. Once in Ulaanbaatar, you will move to a hotel in the center of the capital. Depending on flight schedules, you will make a small tour of the city or the famous statue of Chinggis Khan. In the afternoon, you will go to see the bikes, dinner, tour briefing, then sleep. Tomorrow you will start the tour!
You will attend a briefing in the morning before starting to drive. You will leave Ulan Bator southbound on paved roads. Then, you will eat in the area of Mount Zorgol Khairkhan, about 130 kilometers from the capital. You will arrive to Baga Gazariin Chuluu in the middle of the afternoon. Here, your first Ger camp awaits you with a replenishing dinner. Today is a day to get acquainted with your mounts and driving through Mongolia and ride down the first tracks towards the Gobi.

This early morning, you will continue heading south with a brief stop in Mandalgovi where you will refuel and buy groceries for the next few days. You will cross the immense plains and long uninhabited distances of the Middle Gobi, where you will hardly cross a vehicle on the road. Part of the day goes by tracks where the wind will be your companion. You will arrive at the Ger camp at the end of the afternoon, where each one will be able to enjoy being alone in the surroundings. About 50% of today's route is off road.
Today, you leave the Middle Gobi region and head towards Dalanzadgad, towards the southernmost part of the Mongolian Gobi Desert. It is increasingly difficult to find nomadic groups, and you will enjoy the beauty of Mount Gurvan Saikhan. You will continue to marvel at the immensity of the place and its plains. Finally, you will arrive at Ger camp where you can enjoy a cold beer. Forty percent of today's route is off road.
Today, you will start exploring the Gurvan Saikhan National park. You will cross some tracks that will take you to glacier areas in the middle of canyons more than 2,700 meter high, with very nice views full of a great variety of birds. Today will be a hard day, but no less spectacular, including different types of road including sand. Today, 100% of the route is off road. At the end of the day, you will enjoy riding parallel to the largest set of dunes in the southern area of the Gobi. Spend the night in front of them and see one of the most beautiful sunset views in the world.
After the sand, you will reach the steppes. You will travel from the west to the north through the green Mongolian steppes on the day when you will do more kilometers of the tour. Today's trip will be 100% off road.
During the day, you will cross Flaming Cliff, canyons more typical of Arizona and documented by the adventurer and explorer Roy Andrews Chapman in 1923, which is said to have been the inspiration for the Indiana Jones character. Your destination takes you to the Monastery of Ongii, which was destroyed during the communist era and is currently being partially restored. This area is well known for the populations of Bactrian camels, a species very widespread in this area, and with which you will have the opportunity to photograph. Tonight you may dress in traditional Mongolian clothes at the Ger camp.
Your destination today is the city of Kharakhorum, legendary capital of the Mongol Empire in the thirteenth century. You will ride through spectacular steppes surrounded by herds of wild horses. Then, you will eat in a curious place, and maybe you have to do some wading.
Upon arrival, you will visit the Buddhist monastery of Erdene Zuu, the largest in Mongolia that was rebuilt in the sixteenth century. This construction is surrounded by 108 Stupas, and has been the main site of Buddhist pilgrimage for centuries. The last Ger camp awaits you in a spectacular setting. Today's ride is 90% off road.
Today, you will continue heading north on the road towards Ulaanbaatar. Today, you will have a special local surprise specially prepared for you in a spectacular place. In the afternoon, you will arrive to the capital. This is the end of the tour. You will leave the bikes, transfer to the hotel, and a big farewell dinner awaits you among photos, anecdotes, and great memories for life.
After breakfast, you will go to the airport and say goodbye to Mongolia with the desire to return to explore the endless possibilities that this beautiful country has to offer.
This trip includes many tracks that generally do not involve much difficulty, but you need some off road experience or have done some trail training. Therefore, if you do not have any experience, it is recommended that you attend one of 30 MPS Adventures' trail initiation courses.
During the Mongolia tour, you can come accompanied but your friend can NOT go on the bike with you. He or she can come in the 4 × 4 support, which practically comes at the same pace and closing the group so your friend will be at all times with you.
On this tour, in addition to the two local motorcycle guides, there will be a Spanish 30mps guide at all times, as well as a support car with another staff member. You will always be very supported.

The tour will take you to the Gobi desert and other fascinating places in Mongolia. Mongolia is a country where many more horses or sheep live than people. In fact it is probably the only place on earth that still has wild horses.
It borders Russia to the north and China to the south. Its capital is Ulan Bator, where one third of the total population lives. It is the 19th largest country but also the least densely populated in the world dominated by steppes and mountains to the north and west, and the Gobi desert to the south.
Of the 2.9 million inhabitants, 30% are nomads. 90% of the inhabitants are of the Mongol ethnic group, Tibetan Buddhism being the majority religion of the country. The Mongol Empire was one of the most extensive in history. Created and led by Chingis Khan from the year 1206, it reached an apogee extending from Korea to Europe, with more than 100 million inhabitants.
