What it's like to travel the Trans Mongolian? The ancient way from China to Russia via Mongolia is arguably the most interesting Trans Mongolian route to take. The 7,621 km (4,735 miles) journey takes 6 days if you travel not stop. This train cuts across Mongolia and the stunning Gobi desert, then crosses Siberia westbound to reach Moscow at the end of this amazing journey. This is hop on/hop off train tour.
