Temüjin Tour of Mongolia
Mid Life Adventures offered a trip to explore the land of Temujin (Genghis Khan) where vast plains met the sky and where the nomadic life was still a living tradition. The tour started with a two-day tour of the ‘best of Beijing’, including the Great Wall and Forbidden City. After that, we followed a short flight to Ulaanbaatar where we embraced Mongolian culture and history, and rode into the vastness, the forests, the plains, the sand dunes, and the valleys on Royal Enfield ‘Himalaya’ Adventure motorcycles.
Sleeping and dining in traditional gur camps was an experience in itself. We swam in volcanic hot springs, walked through 200-year-old monasteries, and celebrated two days of the spectacular annual Nadaam festival.
Historic Plains of Mongolia where Genghis Khan Travelled
From the capital city across the lush, green Steppes, among the turquoise coloured lakes and through the hills and mountains, we traversed the most spectacular region of Mongolia from the Centre to the North West.
Between our invigorating rides, we experienced the authentic culture of the Eagle hunters and overnight with nomadic families in their Yurts in the middle of nowhere.
Rugged Mongolia is a mind blowing adventure destination where ancient traditions are still practised daily by the hardy wanderers of the country’s vast steppes and deserts. This Mongolia motorcycle tour was designed to give riders the most extraordinary and fantastic experience, immersed in the nomadic existence as a free, wild spirit.
