I am entering Russia by road. They were matching my photo.
I don't know what happened. All people are very helpful and very friendly. I am enjoying here. There is a similar situation to Iran in Russia. He has served the food. Hey guys, very good morning. Welcome back to the new vlog. My name is Tourvashu. Currently, I am in Ulaanbaatar the capital city of Mongolia. It is 7:00 am. I have come out of my guest house. The temperature is -30 degrees. The Mongolian series was completed in the last video. Now, I am going to a new country. I am going to Russia. Gana is waiting for me.
I have to walk for 2 minutes. I am going to Russia by crossing the land border. I am taking a bus from Ulaanbaatar to Ulan Ude.
Ulan Ude is the first major town
near Mongolia and Russia's border. It is there north of Ulaanbaatar. I am going to the International bus station. It is 8 km from the centre of the city. I have taken a taxi, Gana is going to drop me off. I am meeting Gana for the last time on this trip. The time is more than 7 in the morning.
It is completely dark. I think the sun will rise around 8:00 am. The distance from Ulaanbaatar to Ulan Ude is 650 km.
Russia's border is 400 km from Ulaanbaatar. I have a Russian visa.
I had taken a Russian tourist visa from India for 30 days. In the last video, you saw that I was
booking an international bus ticket. I was booking the bus ticket for this journey. The cost of travelling 650 km was 1,30,000 Tugrik. It is 3,400 INR. Light will begin around 8:00 am. I have come to the Ulaanbaatar International bus station. I think this is my bus.
Many buses standing here.
It has been written here. Ulaan means 'Red' in the Russian or Buran language. Baatar means 'Hero'.
Ude means 'Gate'. We are going to 'Red Gate' from 'Red Hero'. I am keeping my luggage here. People have already boarded the bus. Which is my seat number?
I don't want it to be in the centre. This is my seat. This is an international bus from Mongolia to Russia. I have taken many eateries. There won't be any problem. Dry fruits, protein bar, multigrain cookies. I am going to Russia for the third time.
I'm entering Russia by road for the first time. I travelled in extreme summers last time.
Now, I am travelling in extreme winters. It is going to be an adventurous Russian trip. You might have been thinking, who is Gana? Gana is a professional tour guide in Mongolia. I took the name and she has come here. After travelling to more than 50 countries,
I have taken a guide for the first time. Gana has given me this.
This is a drink or sweet. This is also a drink.
This is Mongolian sweet. I will meet you once the journey starts. I slept when the journey started.
I had not slept last night. I woke up now, the bus has stopped. The time is 1 pm. It has been more than 4 hours of travelling. The bus has stopped here. Gana gave me some sweets and Juice. I also brought chocolates from India.
I gave it to her when I went to her home yesterday. I have met these 2 Russians. I thought both are a couple.
But they are not. This is a cafe. The bus has stopped here. This is salt tea. I just saw the location on my phone. The Russian border is 2 km from here. We reached the border within 5 hours. I have travelled 400 km from Ulaanbaatar to the border. The name of the border is Altanbulag. Altanbulag is on this side and Kyakhta is on another side. She was from Altanbulag
She will get down at the next stop. We travelled 400 km within 5 hours. We still have to travel 250 km.
We will reach by evening. I will show you the time taken at the border and immigration. She has given me this lollipop. I come back to the bus. Bus will reach the International border within 5 minutes. I don't know whether I can shoot a video or not. I will meet you after crossing the border. Welcome to Russia. I also welcome you all to the biggest country in the world.
