Jammin thru Mongolia Begins!!
Jammin thru Mongolia begins and wow, just a few kilometers outside town and we're in awe at the immensity of the landscape. Once the concrete gives way, the grassland takes over from horizon to horizon. It isn't that flat as we rolled up and over hills that gave us views far across the land. It looks sort of like Montana but of course, there's Russia to the north and China to the south here ;) We had a coffee break up on one hill and after lunch, the big sky, bactrian camels and wild horses kept us enthralled and affirmed that yes, we were riding in Mongolia!
We left the city behind and the landscape opened up in front of us and all around us. It's not as flat as I imagined as we rolled up and over small and big hills. It makes for some pretty sublime riding and that too when chugging along on a #RoyalEnfiled Bullet
