Moscow to Ulaanbaatar in 4x4

Hi all,

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.

or

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.

We did Moscow to UB in 2010 entering at Altanbulag using 4x4. Pros are that there is a paved road pretty much from the border at Ulan Ude to UB. Not sure how this fares from the West side of Mongolia. The advantages west side as I understand are the mountain ranges through Russia on entry but we didn't do. We did pretty much the route you are describing taking detours deep into the foot of Siberia (Kyzyl) - very beautiful scenery along the way. We visited Lake Baikal and loved. The considerations I would make is timing and how long your visa is as the drive times shouldn't be under-estimated.
