Spring-2015

We drove around 4500 km to and from western Kazakhstan and made a week-long 1500 km round-trip in the desert area of Mangyshlak and Ustyurt plateau. The round trip appeared to be extrememly hard for the vehicle, as we had limited time and had to drive fast on a very rough surface. Click here for a map and route details.
