Since 2004, this extravagant rally has inspired hundreds of enthusiasts, though not everyone made it to Mongolia. The idea behind the rally is that the participants are supposed to get the cheapest, least powerful car and manage to cover the 10,000 miles (16,093 km) route around Europe and Asia, finishing at the far east of Kazakhstan. There is no fixed track; time is the only limit. And the main point of this race is that nobody really knows how they are supposed to get to the finish line.

Race Culture & Risks

While going through the urban areas and highways, drivers must obey the traffic rules. But in the Mongolian Steppe, there are no rules at all! Since there are not that many bridges, people even cross the rivers in their vehicles. The organizers claim that after this adventure, your life won't be the same. However, it is important to remember that this is a dangerous activity, which follows the phrase: "If nothing go​es wrong, everything has gone wrong." So prepare well before you start off.

Rally Route

Mongol Rally doesn't have a set route and only announces the starting and finishing points of the race. This year, the rally is set to begin near Prague in Czechia and will end at the far east of Kazakhstan, with no confirmed location yet. The participants will get to witness the gorgeous landscapes of the Kyrgyzstan mountains, Uzbek roads, and Turkmenistan's infamous Gates of Hell. To get to Central Asia, contestants need to make a stopover in Tbilisi and send their car to Baku, Azerbaijan, where they can set off and continue their journey.

Entry Cost & Fees

To take part in the 2024 edition of the Mongol Rally, one must pay £795 per car or £375 per motorbike. In 2025, the participation fee is £895 per car and £425 per motorbike. The car team can consist of four people maximum. You need to pay an additional fee, which usually amounts to £900-£1,300, to ship your car to Azerbaijan. You also need to consider all other additional costs, such as gear, vehicle repairs, visas, and fuel.
