Other Need-to-Know Information about Mongolia
Mongolia may not have the quite the historic art and architecture of Europe, or the white sand beaches of the tropics, but the unique history and culture, and especially the gorgeous natural beauty of the land will more than make up for it! The national festivals, such as Naadam and the Golden Eagle festival, are a sight to behold. The three “manly” sports – wrestling, horse racing, and archery – that take place during Naadam are not to be missed!
The capital of Ulaanbaatar offers plenty to do, including art museums, the Bogd Khaan palace, the Gandan Monastery and its enormous statue of Megjid Janraisag, and much more. However, the real highlights for a Mongolia motorcycle adventure begin outside the city, among the national parks, nature reserves, and isolated countryside. The natural splendor of these landscapes will be all you need.
The weather from May through October creates the ideal travel season, and would be the recommended time for Mongolia motorcycle tours. You’ll likely want to avoid the Mongolian winters, as they bring rain or bitter cold, depending on the particular part of the country. Generally, tourism peaks in July to coincide with the Naadam festival that is held July 11th to the 13th.
Motorcycle tours in Mongolia generally begin in Ulaanbaatar, which is the capital of the country, and also the location of Mongolia’s main international airport. However, flights into Ulaanbaatar are limited and you will likely need to catch a flight from Beijing, Hong Kong, Bangkok, Seoul, Istanbul, or Tokyo. Rail is another option for reaching Mongolia’s neighboring countries and the Trans-Mongolian line is part of the famous Trans-Siberian Railway. The major roadways in Mongolia are paved and in good condition, but the further you stray from these, the more challenging and exciting the riding will become!
