Accommodation

Check-in Time:
09:00
Check-out Time:
12:00

Enduro Expedition LLC's head office is located in the city center. They will arrange three to four-star hotels by your choice; before arrival, they will give you more details with information.

You will be accommodated for two nights in three to four-star hotels and six nights in established ger camps. A flexible attitude is needed, as services in these extremely remote regions of central Asia will not be what you are accustomed to. All accommodations are on a twin share basis. If you are traveling alone, Enduro Expedition will pair you up with another solo traveler.

The ger camps are pre-erected, traditional carpet-floored, and felt-lined tents that are very large, each one with a log fire as the centerpiece. Each tent has a number of beds with mattresses, pillows, and linen.

Program

The Gobi Desert is a vast arid region in northern China and southern Mongolia. It's known for its dunes, mountains, and rare animals such as snow leopards and Bactrian camels. In the Gobi Gurvansaikhan National Park, the Khongoryn Els sand dunes are said to sing when the wind blows. The park also features the deep ice field of Yolyn Am canyon. Dinosaur fossils have been found at the red "Flaming Cliffs" of Bayanzag.

Day 1: Arrival in Ulaanbaatar

You will be leaving from the shop by 9 a.m. at the latest via minibus to Dalanzadgad, the center of the Gobi province, where the rest of the team and bikes are already waiting for you. After checking-in to Gobi Oasis ger camp, a detailed security briefing for the tour will be held by the tour manager followed by an approximately one-hour test ride so you can get used to your bike and equipment. The welcome dinner will be held at the ger camp!

Day 3: Khongor Sand Dunes - 205 kilometers

Exciting day ahead! Start riding to the biggest sand dunes in Mongolia. You will experience how amazing it is to ride an enduro bike in the endless steppes of Mongolia.
