White Lake was the highlight of my Mongolia motorcycle adventure. We spent two nights at a ger camp besides the lake. During the intervening day we rode around the lake in no particular hurry wandering off into the steppes every now and then, splashing into small streams and slipping and sliding through marshes on our KTM 450 EXC’s. We headed to the nearby Country Lake, stopped for a while to bask in its beauty and then rode around it to later return back to our ger camp.
That day we rode just 60 kms. I’m saving the entire GoPro footage and backing it up to the cloud. When I get old and can’t ride a motorcycle anymore I’m going to put on one of those virtual reality goggles, have a fan blow cool air on my face and watch the video in its entirely, while grinning from ear to ear. For all the three hours.
This day was the best day spent on a motorcycle in my entire life so far. It has has been etched into my memory forever.
