Mongolia Panorama

Our experiences with Tim Cope in Mongolia are just the stuff of dreams.
The trip was absolutely superb and having Tim as our guide was such an amazing bonus!

Your local operators there are excellent. Nothing was too much trouble. Everything went superbly well. The drivers were unrivalled. They multi-tasked as butchers, professional singers and entertainers.

I cannot praise the whole team enough..... It was a dream come true: to ride in the wake of Genghis Khan, on a Mongolian horse, wrapped in a deel!

Thank you so much for organising such a magnificent trip!

ADVENTURE DETAILS

Mountain Biking
Mountain Biking
Mountain Biking

Mountain Biking involves cycling on remote and rough roads, in variable weather conditions for up to eight hours a day. You will spend successive days at altitudes generally not exceeding 5,500m. You will need to provide your own bike. To get the most out of these fully supported expeditions you require a sound level of cycling fitness and you should be comfortable in adverse weather conditions. Suggested preparation: One hour of aerobic type exercise, four to five times a week for three to six months prior to departure, preferably on mountain roads/trails, and in variable weather conditions. For these expeditions it is important that you also train in adverse weather conditions, particularly in strong winds where possible.
