THE GOBI DESERT - 15 RIDING DAYS
Around 2100 kms
Vast expanses of emptiness, driving for days through dry, dusty land, this Gobi desert itinerary will take you to some of the iconic sites: the Khongryn Els and the Flaming cliffs. Traveling by motorcycle in the Gobi might be easier and faster than in the steppe but the distances are greater and there are fewer nomads who could help you in case of problems. Anyway, the landscapes are beautiful and nobody comes back from there without lots of stars in their eyes. This itinerary is given as an indication and does not include rest days that you will have to add to your program
Be careful, the same village can have several different names which adds to the confusion. The best application is Komoot which can be used off line 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.
This route that you can download on your phone is not 100% reliable. Indeed, a river whose water has risen due to rain may prove to be impassable at the location indicated on your GPS. The tracks are in perpetual motion but the general direction remains the same.
