Explore the Unchartered Homeland of Chinggis Khan

Tour Description

Mongolia motorcycle tour

In East Mongolia, the freedom to roam is unparalleled. There are no fences or borders to hinder your journey. Want to explore that distant mountain or forest – veer off the road and head straight there. With boundless landscapes and endless possibilities, Explore Indochina motorcycle adventures ensure an unforgettable experience.

You’ll walk the ground where Temüjin (later Chinggis Khan) grew up, married his wife Borte, and escaped from slavery before becoming the man who changed the course of world history. You’ll visit his place of birth, the ground on which he was coronated, and where he fought his first battles against his arch-rival Jamukha.

You’ll be amazed by the abundance of wild and domestic animals roaming the vast plains. Apart from the incredible annual gazelle migration in the Toson Kulstai National Park, you’ll pass herds of goats, sheep, horses, yaks and wild camels while the skies are full of eagles, hawks, and vultures. With most days spent off-road and nights in traditional ger camps, you’ll genuinely experience Mongolia in a way few have.
