Crossing the freezing river. The ice was to thin, to pas on the top, but thick enough to cut our skin on naked legs. 200m wide way in the freezing water around 0.5-1.5m deep - we had to pass 4 times because of our luggage and bikes.
In the year 2000 we'd been traveling 2 months across Mongolia by Uaz, the soviet 4WD car, then by horses and finally by bikes. Small expediton - 2 members, Lot of difficutlt terrain, hard conditions. It was the beginning of winter, with frozen days and nights below -25'C.
