Welcome to Dansk udgave! Dansk udgave





We visited eastern Sibiria and Mongolia in August 2018.
First we spent some days in Irkutsk and at Lake Baikal.
From Irkutsk we went by the Trans-Sibirian railroad to
Ulan Ude and continued with the Trans-Mongolian railroad
to Ulan Bator.
After a couple of days in Ulan Bator we went to two ger-camps:
Terelj and Khustain.

You can see some of our pictures from our tour on this web page.
