If you type 'Mongolia' at the top of the page and press 'search' - you will find many references to Mongolia and the answers you seek.

Tell me where you want to get in Mongolia. What is your route? I can recommend a southern way from Tashanta to UB via Hovd, Altai-Gobi, Arvaiheer, etc. There are 1450 km off-road (Tashanta-Arvaiheer)and 450 km paved road (Arvaiheer-UB)
The road condition in mountain areas is bad. The much depends on weather.
You will need in about 250-300 km without refueling. The fuel is not so bad. In a small settlements I had to refuel 76-octane only. But I had no problem with my Africa Twin because of it.

Hi Weber.
I met two Czech drivers in the last summer. They came back from Mongolia to Czehia via Russia. They was stay at my home in Togliatti for 2 days. The name of one of them is Marek. He live near Czechia - Germany border. Last september I have taken their route across Mongolia. Marek is very good russian speaker. He told me a lot of about Mongolia. It was a very good help in my journey.
Greetings from Russia.

What motobike was chosen by you for this trip?
If you will go alone you have to carry a lot of luggage incl spare parts and tires.

I have next plane: I start from Prague approximately 10.May. I will go to Moscow, catch train to Barnaul. There I visit my friend and Altaj- Us-Koksa (there I was 15years ago with kayak on river Katun).
Next I continue to Mongolia over border Tasanta. I will go by direction to city Altaj, down to Gobi visit Czech geologic expedition and next north to lake Hovsgol and over border Kjachta to Bajkal. From Irkutsk I will go by train to Moscow. I think, that I return home on 30.June.
I look anybody for all trip or part of trip. If I don’t look, I will go single.

Hi Weber.

Be carefully on the mountain road between Ulgiy and Hovd at Buratyn pass. There is a big plateau with a lot of small rivers and lakes. And I think it will be possible to see a big water there in spring or after big rain.

Hi.

If you will go from Altai to Bayanhongor take left towards north. The beaten track go south via Ulaan Shalin Holloy. It is a Gobi. The southern road is better than northern one. But there is no any bridge above the Baydrag river. You will see it near Boon Tsagaan lake. It is a no problem for UAZ, ZIL and GAZ but for the bike...When I was there in autumn it was possible to pass the river with a motorcycle. But it always depends on weather.
