Mountain Biking Selkh Am West Ridge

*****   Add a review
#9 of 76 mountain bike trails in Mongolia
#1,052 in the world

This is a big ridge that is quite complex. You have to piece together two tracks and small singletracks to work you way south down the ridge. The area is a mix of big climbs, blazing descents, pretty forests, barren rocky slopes, and outstanding views. It takes a lot of physical effort and a lot of navigation. All in all, it makes for a great mountain biking experience.

    Huge beautiful views, beautiful colors in the fall, blazing fast singletrack, sometimes in beautiful forest, sometimes on barren short grass slopes and ridges, remote feeling even though you are just 15 minutes or so from the center of the city. I miss you Selkh Am and Mongolia. Soooo grateful to the Lord for all the time I got to ride and explore the little mountains around Ulaanbaatar.

    The trail is about 8.5 mi long inside Selkh Am. If you count the downhill ridge ride from the fire tower above Selkh Am, then the trail/ride is 10 mi long. I prefer to start the ride all the way back at Selbe Amaralt and ride up to the fire tower (see map). This makes for a great 15 mi (24km) ride. A five star ride without question -- big climbs with huge DH payoffs and a great variety of beautiful scenery.
