The Mongolian Road Network

.

Out of a total of 50,000Km of roads in Mongolia only about 5,000Km  (10%) are asphalt paved roads. In 2014 it is expected that over 2000km of new paved roads will connect east and west Mongolia 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.
