route through Mongolia

From Ulan-Ude ( Ула́н-Удэ́ ) the Trans-Mongolian heads south to Ulaan-Baatar before making its way southeast to Beijing. Ulan-Ude was founded in 1666 by the Russian Cossacks. Due to its geographical position, the city grew rapidly and became a large trade centre which connected Russia with China and Mongolia. There are old merchants' mansions richly decorated with wood and stone carving in the historical center of Ulan-Ude, along the river banks. They represent beautiful examples of Russian classicism. There is also a large and highly unusual head of Lenin in the central square - the largest in the world.

 

 

 Trans-Mongolian Railway: Moscow to Beijing and beyond

The Trans-Mongolian Railway is one of the greatest rail journeys of the world. I shot this footage on the way from Moscow (Russia) to Beijing (China) and on to South China. More than 15,000 kilometres.
