Mongolia - Russia border crossing points
The FCO website says:
"There are only six border points open to British passport holders. They are at Ulaanbaatar’s international airport; the road/train crossing to China at Zamin Uud, the road crossing to Russia at Tsagaannuur in the far west; the train crossing to Russia at Sukhbaatar and the road crossings to Russia at Altanbulag and Ereen-Tsav in the north east."
I thought it was possible to cross by road at Sukhbaatar, heading to Ulan Ude. I can find Ereen and it's quite a bit further east, can't find Altanbulag except just west of UB.
So - best border to crossing to use if heading to UU / Baikal?
