Getting there & away
There is some traffic along the main road towards Khovd and Bayankhongor, but you may have to wait a few hours for something suitable. Very few vehicles travel between Altai and Uliastai; you will probably have to wait for something to arrive from Uliastai first. Almost no vehicles venture into the south of Gov-Altai.
MIAT flies from Ulaanbaatar to Altai and back once a week for US$132/232 one way/return. The airport and reservation office (23544, 9948 9665) are 2km northwest of the centre.
