Day 9. 2004-07-12. Through Altay.

Notes: There are camels grazing not far away while we have breakfast. We are still making our way around a lot of road construction - sometimes someone ends up on the wrong side of the new road and we have to wait till they make their way back. 10:00 - the topography is finally beginning to change - we're getting closer to the hills, and we're beside a deep (dry) river bed, heading towards a cleft in the hills. There are lovely red hills against velvety green bigger hills. The top of the pass through the hills is 2130m high. Arrived Altay around 01:30, found fuel, water and good grocery shopping (eggs, cheese, bread, cookies and a wonderful Genghis Khan vodka bottle)

Diesel Fuel (Altay): 600 Togrog per litre. (1,170 Togrog = $1US)
