Confluence of the Selenge and Orkhon Rivers

The Selenge and Orkhon rivers join in northern Mongolia
A view of the joined river, on the edge of Russia with a local train passing through

Selenge murun and Orkhon gol (the Selenge and Orkhon rivers).The rivers join up a few kilometres from the border then flow into Russia, into Siberia. The countryside around this area is quite superb – mountains, rolling hills, forests and open areas all combine to form a spectacular piece of countryside.

We were fortunate to be able to get so close to the border, thank you for organising that Puujee.
