   This is the plan . . .

Our usual Spring Equinox party on 21st March marks the end of the winter season.

The summer season then starts with our opening party in the Scotch House Pub on Saturday, 6th June; following which we run the vehicles down to the Chinese border to meet our friends and guests coming up from Beijing. The first trek of the summer then starts on 14th June (Sun) when the cavalcade leaves Emin Zuud for an 8 day trek across the northern Gobi and the Mongolian Plateau to arrive in UB on Saturday 20th. The next day will be Earth Day with no vehicels allowed on the roads  of UB and a Children’s Party at THM HQ in Nisikh. 

Monday the 22nd sees the start of two huge treks: The first an epic of 2,000 km over 15 days on 650cc trailbikes down to the southern Gobi and than across the wilderness and up into the Altai Mountains. The second is a marathon Russian bike run under the leadership of Mike Rokich and the banner of “The Red Devil Redemption.” The Red Devil in question being the actual Izh Planetta that was riden by Claudio von Planta in the “The Long Way Round”, and the plan being to retrace the steps pf the documentary all the way back to London. But not before meeting up with the first trek for a huge celebration in Hovd. The return trek will run straight across Central Mongolia to arrive in UB just in time for the Nadaam Festival on the  13th July.

Our second series of summer treks starts on Monday, 3rd Aug, with a relaxed eight day ramble through the history and wonders of Central Mongolia on mysterious Russian machinery., and is followed by another 8 day trek, this time a trail bike tour of the Khentee Mountains, including hiking on the highest peaks.

T wrap up the season, we’re planning a return visit to Khar Balgas, just because we have a desire to hold out Autumn equinox party in the mysterious shadows of the remote fortress of Khar Balgas this year.  The trek returns to UB in time for a closing party in the Scotch House Pub on Friday 25th Sept.  - and that’s the season done.
