Route in Mongolia
The way I see it there are 3 possible routes crossing Mongolia west to UB:
1. North: Tashanta - Ulangom - Moron - UB
2. South: Tashanta - Olgi - Khvod - Altai - Bajanchongor - Arvaikherr - UB
or a third alternative, a combination:
3. Tashanta - Olgi - Khvod - Altai - Uliastay - Tosontsengel - Tsetserleg - UB
What would be your recommendation? Perhaps another combination of the above? Considering a time-frame of 2 weeks, 2-300 km per day riding and some day for rest.
Of course near from the Tashanta border is mandatory to visit the places discovered by timolgra and visited by you last year (Tsengel)
