Train #004 Moscow - Beijing

This is one of the most interesting Trans-Siberian route to take. The weekly Trans-Mongolian train leaves Moscow for Beijing every Tuesday night. The 7,621 km (4,735 mile) journey takes 6 days. This train crosses Siberia, cuts across Mongolia and the Gobi desert, then enters China. The whole train is lifted into the air and the bogeys substituted for the different gauge when crossing border with Russia. Whether arriving from the east or the west, this is a wonderful journey and is certainly the experience of a lifetime. Train has deluxe 2-berth compartments (with shared shower), 1st class 4-berth compartments & 2nd class 4-berth compartments.

MOSCOW - ULAANBAATAR

Moscow - Ulaanbaatar

This is an International express train operates twice a week between Moscow and Ulaanbaatar along the Trans-Mongolian route.

The train has 2nd class compartments and a restaurant. Travelling from West to East one gradually passes from a European to an oriental culture at a sedate enough pace for the mind to absorb the subtle changes. The landscape too metamorphoses from one of neatly laid out fields through the vast inhospitable birch forested Siberian taiga and the treeless Mongolian steppe.
