Trains to Mongolia

If you would like to travel to Mongolia from Moscow or Beijing on the infamous Trans Siberian train, we can arrange it. From Moscow, crossing five time zones and taking five whole days, this amazing journey from west to east is a once in a lifetime experience. The train passes through the great cities of Perm, Ekatarinberg, and Irkutsk, beyond which you travel along the shores of 'Lake Baikal' then cross the border into Mongolia. After the thrilling 6300 km journey, taking 106 hours, the train arrives in Ulaanbaatar. From Beijing to Ulaanbaatar, East to West, it is equally exciting, but the journey takes only 35 hours, 1356 kilometers. As the train passes through Mongolia it is sometimes called the Trans Mongolian Train.

Trans Siberian Train: Moscow to Ulaanbaatar

The Trans Siberian Train Route from Moscow to Ulaanbaatar and on to Beijing is an economic lifeline for the towns and cities through which it passes on its route to Asia. If you want to start in Ulaanbaatar and get the train to Moscow, we can also arrange it for you.

For the last century, intrepid travellers have set out on the journey of a lifetime, travelling 7,656 km (4,785 miles) by train along a track which reaches from the very heart of the Russian capital, past forbidden cities and rural villages scatted through the vast forests of Siberia, and on to exotic Beijing.

Beijing To Ulaanbaatar "Trans Mongolian Train"

Beijing to Ulaanbaatar takes about 35 hours and includes changing the bogeys. The whole train is lifted into the air, one carriage at a time, and the 'Bogeys' substituted for the different gauge. The timetable for this train is complicated because it changes every year, starting from the end of May. The Railway Authorities of China, Mongolia and Russia have a grand meeting in April and decide the timetable for the coming year.
