Day Nine – Khosvgl Nuur to Chandman Ondor

Awake 5am, surrounded by mist oozing off the lake. Too much to take in, go back to sleep.

Delightful scenic ride through wildflower meadows and jaunty pine forests.

Brief chat with German in SUV who tells us of a high road from Tsagaan Uur to Erden Bulgan, and warns us off riding through the “Tiger Forest” to the east on the way to Teshig, as we had been planning.

Camp by a river, get rained on for 10 hours, my sleeping bag is pressed up against the end of the tent, I wake up with slightly damp feet, go back to sleep, wake up with slightly damp calves, go back to sleep, repeat process until I am half-soaked and still half-asleep and just put on my Icebreaker rather than sorting it out properly. Wake up not particularly refreshed.
