    I am planning a two week ride through Mongolia in September 2018. I’m planning to head north out of UB to Lake Khovsgol, south to White Lake and then back to UB. Can anyone provide a little insight on what to expect from Mother Nature. I have looked at historical trends and it seems milder than I would have expected. Anyone that can provide real world knowledge would be greatly appreciated.

    Thanks in advance.

    It will be chilly up near Khovsgol.

    Did a write up a couple of years back. Here is a link.

    Feel free to text with any questions.

    Cheers!

    We went in their summer June July Mongolian games time, and it was hot in the deserts but really very nice. As a note their highways i found very dangerous, trucks will hold a nice line then swerve into your direction wildly to miss a huge pothole , this was normal . I recommend wear brown undies or choose the dirt roads which are loads more quiet, fun and inviting ,peolpe are friendlier .
    You can head due west of UB and hit the dirt 20 odd ks west of Cheke's Motorcycle rental south of the river which can take you to Teserleg . You can also cross the river to go to the Kustain National park where the original line of horses Takhi are preserved and kept, you can see them roaming which is great . Theres glamping there beer , goat plus good cheese and red wine in the park boundaries or you can rough it like we did and camp on the steepe which there is plenty of . In the 2 weeks we were there we had a few days rain and the last night some anoying wind and rain, all part of the fun. From there you'll come out at the highway.`
