What a journey ... Ulaan Baatar to Moron

Imagine a bus for 36 people with 56 people on board, no boot for the luggage, hard seats and a trail road ... This was our 22 hour journey (600km) from Ulaan Baatar to Moron in the north of Mongolia where we should trek for a few days.

A few highlights include:
  • Swap of drivers whilst the bus is still running
  • Everybody gets off the bus to allow it to climb a steep hill
  • Obviously, no room for legs nor body since luggage are on the floor and people sitting in the alley on top of them
  • Running over a Dog (not very nice and quite shocking for some people), but managed to avoid cows, goats, sheep and horses etc.
  • Stopping an hour for the prayer ... after 4km departure.
  • Mongolian music during the journey ...
Anyway ... what a trip and a great experience to remember. Although we feel K.O after no sleep.
