The route

Mongol Rally 2018

NEW! You can track our route live with our satellite tracker!

The route has been discussed at many a pub planning session over the years ever since we first talked about doing the rally. But it wasn’t a very detailed plan, because we anticipated rolling out our paper map at the start line and going from there.

But alas, we need visas, and so our vague idea has turned into a rough plan:
