    Mongolia has a population of three million people and a land the size of Alaska, where majority of the population is concentrated in few settlements, including the capital city of Ulaanbaatar, home to more than half of the total citizens. With less than few thousand km of pavement Mongolia is an ideal place for those who enjoy wide open spaces, unspoiled landscapes and challeging tracks! Using Yamaha dirt bikes, WR250F and WR450F bikes you will be able to explore Central Mongolia. Visit the ancient capital Kharakhorum, ride through famous Orkhon river basin, bath in one of Mongolia’s hot springs and ride through ancient lava fields. One of the highlights of this trip is meeting the local herders who are still living the way their ancestors lived for several millennia.
