When I was in Mongolia, I pulled some video clips from my dashboard camera and said I’d upload them when I got a decent wifi connection. Well, I just got a very good wifi connection! It’s taken a while, but here are some clips of off-road driving in Mongolia.
An example of the dirt roads in Mongolia. In this clip, I’m following a couple of guided-tour vans on a dirt road – Click here
Water crossing. In this clip, I come across a stream that blocks the road and some locals in a car are already surveying the scene. I take a look myself and select a place to cross. The water is not deep but the banks are fairly steep on either side. Click here
Another water crossing. In fact, I think this was the first water I crossed in Mongolia. I needed to get across this to reach a Buddhist monastery. The water isn’t deep but there is some mud in the vicinity. Click here
In this clip, I’m driving from the White Lake. The dirt road has pot-holes filled with water and then I come across a short section of packed snow that I have to drive across. Click here
They are fairly short clips, but they give you a little idea of some of the driving conditions in Mongolia. I wish I was back there 🙂
