first_imgA group of ATAC Agents recently enjoyed a true ‘bucket-list’ experience on the Trans-Mongolian Railway, hosted by Air China and Sundowners Overland, the Group travelled from Beijing to Irkutsk, experiencing the beauty, culture and extremes of nature along the way. In Beijing, the agents visited the Summer Palace, Tiananmen Square and the Great Wall Huanghacheng section, then made their way through the Gobi Desert onto Ulaanbaatar and Terelj National Park. Highlights included visiting a nomadic family in their Ger for tea and spending the night in a Ger camp, as well as stopping at the Chinggis Khan Statue, the National History Museum and Turtle Rock; then onwards through Siberia and the frozen Lake Baikal to Irkutsk. Warm days and cool nights in Listvyanka, Russia, were followed by a Shaman visit for good luck, bestowed upon the travellers for their return journey.IMAGE: Visiting a Husky Sledding centre in Listvyanka, Russia agentsATACfamilTrans-Mongolian Railwaylast_img
