Remote western Mongolia during winter
This was an exciting section of they journey as information is scarce. The road takes you through Mongolian lowlands, the edge of the Altai mountain range, a pass above 2800m and through the desert cycling past Bactrian camels that walk freely. Passing small settlements of gers where you can rest and enjoy local cultures. The noodle soup and milky tea with boortsog is a real treat for the hungry cyclist. The vast Mongolian lands, clear blue skies and remoteness is a true experience. Cycling this section in the winter was a challenge and not to be done without preparation.
