Start and end in Ulaanbaatar, the Cycling In Mongolia tour is a guided mountain biking trip that takes 15 days. You will travel through Karakorum, Tal Tolgoi, Khangai Mountains and 4 other destinations in Mongolia. Cycling In Mongolia is a small group tour which includes accommodation, transport, meals and others.

Mongolia remains a mysterious presence in the heart of Central Asia [1], a traditional country where visitors are still an unusual sight. Nomads wander the grasslands, setting up their white gers (tents) where the pasture is lush for their horses. On our bikes, we follow good trails across wide, open steppe, into expansive mountain scenery and through larch and pine forests. Camping wild under the wide skies adds an adventurous edge to what is certainly one of our most intrepid cycle tours.[1] taxonomy/term/156

Big skies and teeming herds
5 - Excellent
“A great trip in stunning landscape. A good mix of easy riding with time to enjoy the views and more challenging ups and downs. It is quite something to see herds of horses running beside you while you ride, to watch eagles soaring above you as you camp by a pristine stream. If you are happy on a bike and in a tent I can think of no better way to see Mongolia than this.”
