Trans-Mongolian Railway is one of the longest continuous rail lines on earth. The total distance by rail from Moscow to Beijing is 7621 km. This train crosses Siberia, cuts across Mongolia and the Gobi desert, then enters China and passes through the Great Wall before ending in Beijing.
You can travel almost non-stop directly from Moscow to Beijing or make stops along the way. Enjoy a homestay with a Russian family on the shores of beautiful Lake Baikal, the world's deepest freshwater lake, visit Ulan Ude, or discover Mongolia before entering China. It is also possible to go by train to Vladivostok and take a return flight back.
