Part 2: Ulan Bator to Gorno Altaysk
On the section known as the Mongol Empire, riders soon leave any trace of urban life behind as they pedal west into the Mongol steppe and eventually into the more mountainous Russian Altai Republic and its capital Gorno-Altaysk. This is the Mongolia many people imagine; vast rolling steppes, coated in green, dotted with traditional yurts surrounded by nomadic livestock and back-dropped by snow-capped mountains. The cycling will be tough but immensely rewarding. Nights will be spent tenting under the immense open skies and days churning through the gorgeous countryside.
