Mountain Biking Tsetsee Gun East Trail
#14 of 76 mountain bike trails in Mongolia
#1143 in the world
The trail is ridden as a out and back and starts as a two track dirt road. Most of this road runs in the open along the edge of the forest and a small stream. This actually makes for a nice warm up before the real climbing begins.
At about 3.5 km the road/trail enters the forest in earnest and becomes ST. From here, it is slow going for another 5.5km to the reach the top of the mountain which is Tsetsee Gun. It is a technical climb and quite steep in many places. It is not for the weary or faint hearted. BUT the return ride is all DH and a hoot blasting through all the gnar as fast you dare. Once you break out of the forest and you're on the two track again, it is a 3.5km DH sprint back to your car.
On top the trail can be linked up Manjusri-Tsetsee Gun Trail, heading south towards Zuunmod for a point to point shuttle or a longer out and back.

From the east gate of Ulaanbaatar (Bayanzurikh Tovchoo), travel east on the main road about 11km to the little village of Khonkhor on the right side of the road. Turn right and drive through Khonkhor towards the mountain. From the southern edge of Khonkhor, drive up the valley (south and then west) 6km until the dirt road dead ends at two camps. Park your vehicle here. The trail is behind the first camp. You have to go around the camp (fence) to get to the trail. It starts as a two track dirt road and after about 3.5km it becomes ST.
