Mongolian Road and Transport

Most of Mongolia’s 47000 kilometer road system is dirt tracks. Only approximately 4% of the roads are paved.  The extreme climate wrecks havoc on the paved roads and road signs are far and few in between. The good news is that there is little traffic and no traffic jams in the countryside.  Jeeps are most suitable for countryside driving. Russian minivans are designed for tough drives and perform well in for remote areas like Western Mongolia and the Taiga.
