HIGHLIGHTS
Start cycling from the northern edge of the Gobi desert and traverse the Khangai Mountain range. Challenge 2000m passes and enjoy breath-taking descents into valleys of nomadic herders who graze large flocks of sheep and goats on green pastures. The extreme climate of central Asia has shaped this tolerant and friendly people. Mongolia has always been imagined as the land of vast grasslands and of arid plains roamed by innumerable yaks and horses. But this is true only to an extent. This cycling tour will allow you to experience the part of Mongolia that is dominated by high mountains, woods and that receives a relatively high amount of rain.

Biking in Central Asian mountain range Khangai. From Bayankhongor to Karakorum, and Inner Khangai mountain range to outer Khangai Mountain range, this is a true adventure biking journey across Central Mongolia. We begin this classic journey in the foothills of the majestic Khangai Mountains, which form the border between the Arkhangai province and Uvurkhangai province. Following superb dirt roads and single-track, we take 10 days to ride from Bayankhongor into Karakorum, crossing high passes en route and stopping off to take tea with nomadic shepherds at their yurt encampments. Crossing the Bayanzurkh Pass (2733m) into northern Khangai Mountain range, we make the breathtaking 5-day descent roadway to Karakorum, passing close to peaks and tumbling glaciers. This is a fast-moving and immensely diverse journey of epic proportions. A true and unique biking expedition. Due to the special nature of this unique trip with regard to logistics, we would advise contacting TNM at the earliest opportunity to register an interest.Description: http://travelgobimongolia.com/images/stories/img_1819.jpg
