redspokes 15-day Gobi Desert to the Khangai Mountains cycling holiday offers challenging biking in the dramatic Mongolian wilds riding on sandy track, rutted riverbeds and dry sanded terrain. Our tour begins in Ulaanbaatar, Mongolia's vibrant capital, where ancient culture and 21st Century traditions forge a unique path.
We fly south from Ulaanbaatar to the heart of the Gobi Desert and visit the dramatic Flaming Red Cliffs. Our cycling begins here as we ride across the Gurvan Saikhan mountain range and wide-open plains to the Khongoriin Els ‘singing’ Sand Dunes renowned for their ever-changing crests which hum in the wind. Our only encounters will be with nomadic herders grazing their livestock on the summer pastures. We will camp in river valleys, stay in traditional Ger camps and experience a traditional way of life that has remained unchanged over centuries.
After a vehicle transfer, we cycle onto the Arts Bogd mountain range which divides the Gobi Desert from the central Mongolian grasslands. We camp beside an extinct volcano where you’ll see ancient petroglyphs and burial mounds. We transfer again to reach the Khangai mountain range. Crossing the range from south to north we cycle a series of peaks and river valleys enjoying challenging climbs and thrilling descents. We visit therapeutic hot springs at Tsenkher before riding on to Karakorum the historic medieval capital of Genghis Khan.
You will be transferred back to Ulaanbaatar where redspokes Gobi Desert to the Khangai mountains cycling holiday ends.
