Explore World’s Emptiest Country On Two Wheels… Big Horizons, Big Adventure And Big Savings In Mongolia Book By September 30, 2015, And Save US$585
The world’s emptiest country, Mongolia, can be explored on a wild-west adventure in 2016, with Extreme Bike Tours offering US$585 savings for adrenalin-fuelled motorbike riders or thrill-seeking pillion passengers who book by September 30, 2015.
Boasting 1.6 million square kilometres in space and a population of just three million, Mongolia is the least densely populated country in the world, with only two people per square kilometre. This compares with the world’s most densely populated country, Monaco, with 18,000 people per square kilometre, the UK with 262 people per square kilometre and Australia with three people per square kilometre.
No traffic for more than 100km is common in the vast and empty horizons of western Mongolia, where Extreme Bike Tours will run four 15-day guided adventure tours in May and September, 2016.
One of the world’s last, true frontiers which few foreigners get to visit, Mongolia straddles ancient, cultural crossroads between east and west – an exotic and fascinating destination licensed riders and also pillion passengers with no riding experience can experience with Extreme Bike Tours on the back of classic Royal Enfield 500cc bullet motorbikes.
Riding between the remote, frontier towns of Uliastai and Ulgii, the all-inclusive, off-the-beaten-track tour will see riders eat around campfires and sleep in traditional Mongolian yurts at ‘ger’ camps along the route which stretches through the Gobi Desert and the Altai Mountains. Along the way, riders can meet nomadic herders, gold prospectors and traditional Kazakh eagle hunters who ride horses and train golden eagles to hunt fox and hare.
Departing the Mongolian capital of Ulaanbaatar on May 9 and 23, 2016, and September 12 and 26, 2016, the 15-day expedition is now priced at US$5265 per person, twin-share or for solo travellers – a discount of US$585 if booked before September 30, 2015. Pillion passengers riding behind friends or crew or in the support vehicle can also travel for only US$4455 – a discount of US$495, if booked by the same date.
Fares include connecting domestic flights within Mongolia, hotel accommodation at the start and end of the tour in Ulaanbaatar, ger camp accommodation on the road, all meals, use of new Royal Enfield 500cc bullet motorbikes and fuel. International flights to Mongolia are extra.
Featured on TV’s ‘Top Gear’ program, in 2011, Extreme Bike also offers itineraries to the Himalayas, Tibet, Bhutan, Rajasthan and southern India and from 2016, also Cuba.
