Moscow to Ulaanbaatar in 4x4
A couple of choices, which I am asking for pros and cons.
I feel that this would be a late summer, July/August trip.
In a suitably equipped diesel Land Cruiser.
1/ Moscow, via Novosibirsk, either enter Mongolia at Tsagaannuur, in the far west of Mongolia, then take the southern rout via Arvaikheer to U.B.
2/ Moscow, via Novosibirsk, onto Irkutsk, see Lake Baikal, then enter Mongolia at Altanbulag, northern Mongolia, then onto U.B.
So, what is the pros and cons of undergoing the long drive eastwards, in either Russia or Mongolia.
