The Mongolian Road Network

.

Out of a total of 50,000Km of roads in Mongolia only about 5,000Km  (10%) are tarmac (asphalt) paved roads. In 2016 it is expected that over 2000km of new paved roads will be completed to connect all province centers to the capital city Ulaanbaatar.
All other roads are gravel and dirt roads. The majority of paved roads are roads leading out of the capital city Ulaanbaatar.

We found some more tarmac!!! We just cycled from Russian Altai to UB roughly through the middle of Mongolia. On the way to Olgii from the border the tarmac begins just before Tsgaanuur and goes all the way to Olgii apart from a horrible stretch over a steep pass. Also when you leave Naranbulag heading east there is approx. 100kms of tarmac on the way to Songino. About 25 km heading east out of Tariat the tarmac begins again.

Loads of it is ready to be tarmac'd as well. So nice to drive on.
A year or two and will be paved most of the way.

Forgot to add. South road from Ulgii to UB. Has more than enough petrol stations. We filled up everyday in morning and didn't get under half a tank before reaching a big enough town. Normally with 5 or 6 'glitzy' petrol stations.
