Mongolia (210km around the Khan Khentii range)
Start your adventure in Khan Khentii National Park and make the Genghis Khan Equestrian Statue your first stop here. Climb to the horse’s head of this 131-ft steel sculpture for a killer view of the vast grasslands studded with white ger tent camps. Bike along the Tuul River and you’ll come face to face with flocks of domesticated yaks as you continue your off-road journey to Janchivlan Hill. Feast on stone-roast lamb barbeque under the star-dotted sky as you pitch a tent next to a nomadic family in the unspoilt wilderness. End your trip back at Ulaanbaatar, where you’ll return to civilization and warm water. Plan your trip between Jun-Sep for the most moderate temperatures.
