THE BIG TOUR OF MONGOLIA - 30 DAYS - 3888 KMS

FROM THE GOBI DESERT TO THE NORTHERN MOUNTAIN LAKES AND THE MYTHICAL STEPPES OF THE COUNTRY. YOU WILL DISCOVER THE BEST THAT MONGOLIA CAN OFFER YOU.

Be careful, the same village can have several different names which adds to the confusion. The best application is Mapsme which can be downloaded for free and whose names roughly match those of the map of Mongolia. Google maps is only recommended to find hotels. The names of the villages are often different

Enfin, un grand merci à Cheke qui a su mes donner les meilleurs conseils, ceux que l'on ne trouve pas dans les guides de voyage

So, thank you again for providing such good motorbikes who made this journey possible, completely fit for the outdoors and known from every nomads, which makes it very easy in case of a problem because the people is really curious and willing to help.As urban bikers, the experience of the offroad in this country was one of a kind. Travelling on a motorcycle is unique way to travel, especially in this nomads country where you can pretty much camp anywhere you want to.If some of you want more practical details (budget, organization, motorcycles, etc) you can send us a mail at : eliseninnin0@gmail.com

Elise and Jeremy

Cheke was super helpful and friendly and nothing seemed to be a problem for her. We rented a tent, cooker etc and headed off on 2 bikes. We got lost leaving UB, but oddly enough didn't get too lost when we were out in the countryside. We had a paper map and GPS, but found it more useful to use the map and just ask for directions whenever we ran into a local. I can't recommend travelling by motorcycle through Mongolia and Cheke highly enough.
