If you are looking for another trip through a country with wide open spaces and stunning views just like Mongolia, our trip through central China might be interesting as well….
In August and September 2011 we traveled by bicycle in Mongolia. The trip took four weeks to complete. The total distance cycled was around 900 kms.
We started and ended our trip in Ulan Bataar. We first hired a “taxi” to take us out of town. We started cycling near Amarbayasgalant, then traveled west to Erdenet and Bulgan. We continued south to Tsesterleg and east again to Karkorin and finally Arkayveer. There we chartered a minibus to take us back to the capital.
