There are some dramatic mountains on the way, especially at Ikh Gazriin Chuluu and Khairkhan mountain.
We saw thousands of white-tailed gazelle, some small steppe foxes, marmots, eagles and cute little jerboas that hop like kangaroos.
As we went further south the steppe turned into desert and we passed through some areas of "zag" saxaul forest; these trees are only found in the Gobi and take hundreds of years to grow.
For part of the route we literally had to go off the map - following faint old tracks that were not marked on any of our maps and sometimes became non-existent. This really is about as remote as you can get and it's so silent that you can hear the birds flying in the sky.
We will run this route for the first time in summer 2016. For information about the itinerary, dates and prices see http://www.ktmtour.com/master_rally_mongolia.html
