Khentii cycling trip | 7 days

Mountain biking in the footsteps of Chinggis Khan

TOUR DESCRIPTION

This 6 days mountain biking tour starts near the Gachuurt village about 30 km away from Ulaanbaatar and brings the mountain bikers via rolling hills and forested landscapes from the Central province (Tuv) into the Khentii province, the homeland of Genghis Khan. The total distance is about 320 km with daily rides covering between 40 km up to 80 km. The tour category is recreational/active with a number of challenging climbs followed by long smooth downhills.

The second day of the ride is characterised by a number of river crossings with a mountain biking path that can be compared to a roller coaster track passing into a forested area. During the 6 days the nature and landscapes are impressive and never boring since the mountain biking tour passes through all types of landscapes that Mongolia offers: grass land, steppes, forests in a mountainous environment with an average altitude of 1500 and 1800 meters above sea level.
