A Fatbike Adventure Tour through Tavn Bogd National Park, Mongolia
If you are one of those people who likes to take advantage of the energy which mother nature has provided for humankind in remote places of the planet, one of those people who regularly takes yourself to those places in your imagination, adventuring out into the vast spaces and snow capped mountains of Western Mongolia is a must for your traveller’s soul.
Many people ask why Fatbikes instead of normal Mountain bikes. The answer is simple. Fatbikes take you places you’ve never biked before, places which you wouldn’t be able to get to or terrain you wouldn’t be able to cross on a normal mountain bike. People ask if they are heavy and slow. They are neither.
