31-Jul-2011 -- Today is 11th day of our trip. We have finished installation job in Bugat soum of Gobi-Altai province, had a lunch and then we continued our trip to Tonkhil soum. We kept moving at low speed and really carefully because of no stock wheel, full of baggage and also rocky road. Bugat soum had no wheel repairman. We found tire of Russian wheel in order to repair our broken wheel. End of the day, we could repair car wheel.

There was no obvious road marked on the map so we asked for directions from a local man. A long the way there were some people looking for gold. Finally we found the intended point. The time was 21:00. One of the miracle mountains is Sutai khairkhan mountain and Tonkhil lakes, beautiful lands were within view of the point. Our trip team had 3 members: Gankhuyag, Khishigbayar and Narangerel.
