You Really Gonna Drive That Far?

20 Countries, 52 Days, 10,345 miles, 3 FUNraisers, 15 Missions, 1 Tiny Car


the map above is our original drafted routet in Google Map

Below is the actual route we took in Mongol Rally 2014, it’s approximately 1/3 of our planet earth and a big chunk of it are unpaved roads starting from Mongolia.

Inevitably, our original drafted route was changed due to mechanical problems, border crossings waiting time, health issues, visas time constraints and conditions of the roads. Our car “Takhi Butter” broke down multiple times- in Russia our engine was dangerously overheated due to a leaking radiator, our suspension springs were shattered into pieces in Mongolia, not to mention all the bent wheels and tires changing.

Thank You for your tremendous support in helping us overcoming these challenges! The ones with an asterisk next to them are the days when we tackle our FUNraiser missions.

List of Attractions Along The Route

Below is a list of attractions along the way. Some requires a serious detour or multi-day excursions. We really want to visit all of them but we know we will not be able to. It all depends upon the unknown situations.

We will drive through five different mountain ranges: Carpathians Mountains, Balkan Mountains, Caucasus Mountains, Tien Shan Mountains, Altai Mountains and three deserts: Karakum Desert, Kyzyl Kum Desert and Gobi Desert. We are nature lovers therefore our anchor points have lots of scenic wonders.

The “Missions” column describes the missions we are going to tackle to raise money for the charities. Click on the links will takes you to our mission pledge page.
