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.
