Beijing to Moscow

Beijing to Moscow


The Trans-Mongolian route is the shortest of the 3 train routes at 7,621km (4,735 miles) from Moscow to Beijing. It is also the most popular route by a long way as most people prefer to pass through or, even better, stop off in Mongolia. Scenically it is also the most varied. The Chinese operated train number 3 / 4 runs the entire route and takes just over 5 days. Two border crossings have to be made at the Russian / Mongolian border at Naushki / Sukhbaatar and the Mongolian / China border at Zamyn-Uud / Erenhot.
* The cities marked in yellow on the map are just some which can be connected to by rail from this line.
