About China , Mongolia , Russia

Trans-Siberian & Mongolia Summary

Add to Shortlist

Days 1-2 Beijing/Train

Welcome to the irrepressible capital of China. If you'd like to explore Beijing's myriad incredible sights, we'd recommend arriving a few days earlier to witness places like the Forbidden City and Great Wall of China.

Days 3-6 Ulaanbaatar/Ger Camp

This surprising city combines tradition with modern day in a Soviet-style framework. Ulaanbaatar may look gray, but the city's inherent spirit and its colorful people make this a city to remember. With its rolling meadows, forested hills and imposing rock formations, a ger camp in Terelj National Park is the perfect place to take in Mongolia's natural beauty.

Days 7-10 Ulan Ude & Lake Baikal

Completely surrounded by mountains and tree-covered shores, beautiful Lake Baikal is the world's oldest and deepest lake, holding over 20% of the world's fresh water.

Days 11-12 Trans-Siberian Railway

The world's most famous train line, the Trans-Siberian is also the longest - winding its way through forests, small Siberian villages and big industrial cities to the far-flung reaches of Russia.

Days 13-14 Kungur

Kungur is a charming Siberian town with a history of leather making, trade and is home to the remarkable Kungur Ice Cave.

Days 15-16 Moscow

Whether it's awe-inspiring history, iconic architecture, edgy creative centres or stylish bars and cafes, Moscow delivers on so many levels with a surprise around every corner.
