Bike transportation from Prague to UB and back – ADVfactory.com. I had plane to cross 1200 km in middle of Gobi to Gobi B protected area and visit Przewalski's horses who was reintroduce there from Prague Zoo. But plan was only dream then reality because of flooded desert. 1st day Heavy rain, big lakes of water are everywhere. I was heading from UB to Mandalgovi by asphalt. I am absolutely soaked. Before Delgertsoght rain finished, I slept near road. Morning wake-up me horn from sheep keepers’ motorbike. He visited me for short talking. 2st day I am continuing to Delgertsoght, where was last possibility for petrol, 92 oct only. By yesterday heavy rain my GPS stop work, I used spare GPS. I leaved asphalt to west by gravel road. Road go across green steppe, after 30 km I visited rock monument BagaGqzarin Chuluu. It is old volcano, interesting formed by wind and weather. I tried find prehistoric gravures and petroglyphs, but I was not successful, on place was many modern inscriptions. Next way has name “Monastery road”. I visited monastery SumKhukhBurd with lake. But there is hotel and karaoke and I leave this place very fast. Next way was trough green steppe, I meet few gears. After 50km I connected to “main” road Mandalgovi – Erdendalai. It was true rolled piste. Monastery in Erdendalai is beautifully, was established 500 years before by Tibetan monks. In communist regime there was stock and 300 monks was killed or moved to gulag. Now here live 3 monks. Pleasant women with very good English guide me and after visiting she recommend me directions to north by tarmac road. He didn’t understand, that I want go by gravel road to Gobi. I passed 260 km by gravel roads across steppe. I slept near family who had many sheep and horses. I spend evening on rock hill and watch animals around well. On north in Khangayn Nuruu mountains (central Mongolian mountains) was heavy storm with many lightning. Night was without rain.
