Mongolain Challenge

, Mongolia, Asia

Trip Overview

One huge adventure guaranteed to see you arrive in Ulan Bator tired but smiling, and undoubtedly with memories that will stay with you for a lifetime.

Ride the rough, broken roads of the Kazakh steppe, the pristine mountain wilderness of the Altai region in Russia and Mongolia and finally tackle the Gobi Desert head-on!

Pre-Expedition Training and Orientation

We at Kudu take great pride in running thoroughly professional adventures which are open to anyone with a desire to challenge themselves and what they are capable of. You do not need to be a highly experienced motorcyclist, off-road expert or have a huge amount of adventurous travel experience. Our training and orientation days are designed to be informal, enjoyable affairs where you can meet your fellow adventurers and the Kudu team in a relaxed environment.

TRAINING (1 DAY):

* Meet the Kudu team and each other
* Equipment and route familiarisation
* GPS training
* Ride out and navigation practical
* Motorcycle maintenance and repair

With Kudu's unique pre-expedition and en-route training, all included in the price, you can begin the toughest challenge of your life well prepared for what lies ahead. At present the trainind day is earmarked to be held on day one of the expedition (Saturday 5th June) and all riders, whether starting in London or Riga, are welcome. Those joining from London will begin the ride eastwards the following morning.

Your Kudu Support Crew

As usual you will be supported throughout by members of the Kudu Expeditions team including an expedition leader and guide, mechanic and medic. Our support vehicles are packed with tools and spare parts to keep vehicles and riders moving and they also carry communal equipment, such as tents, chairs and cooking kit. Our expeditions are run in a unique and highly successful way designed to give you the right professional support as back-up, whilst still enabling you to experience real adventures on a truly challenging trip.

Is this trip for me?

The Mongolia Challenge will be a challenging adventure covering many countries, vast distances and some tough terrain. Please remember however that all routes are achievable for any determined off-road beginner and it is normal for us to have several off-road novices on our tours - you wont be alone! In addition we take a very pro-active approach to training throughout the tour and staff will be there to instruct and help you along, whether it be with your off-road riding skills or GPS navigation. There are several nights camping out in the wilderness too where we will be completely self-sufficient, and for most this is a real highlight of their adventure. If you have any concerns or questions about how suitable you think this expedition may be for you then please don't hesitate to get in contact with us - we are here to help!
