September 4th, 2021 Shaded river camp

Just of the main gravel road. A small forested area with a clean river running through. Ample space to park. You can cross (4x4) the river and have an even nicer spot.

January 1st, 2020 Argo

This place is in wrong location - it is located at 42.46007, 59.61418

December 25th, 2019 Maqsood

A couple of general STO's (machanic work place) next to each other in this neighborhood. Find Maqsood, who speaks English and runs a car gas installation workshop. He helped replace a broken brake line with a copper pipe of his gas installation stuff. Didn't have to pay him. Great guy. There are other guys nearby that can help with generic car problems.

December 25th, 2019 Great Supermarket

Well stocked and big supermarket on the ground floor of a small mall. Off street parking in front. The small sushi bar inside on the right side is also nice.

December 5th, 2019 Bozoi fuel

Bought winterized diesel here. They also have gasoline.

December 30th, 2018 Overlander Campsite

We knocked on the door and made noise, but we did not meet anyone. It seemed closed to us.
The parking looks small and has a roof over it, so our high car definitely would not fit.

November 21st, 2018 Specialist for diesel components

Stepan replaced the aluminum washers under the return pipes. Great service. Knows what he is doing. Professional Bosch testing lab inside.

July 16th, 2018 Altai public bathhouse

5.000 for 2 persons in a shower room. Nothing fancy, got water after long dusty drives.

July 3rd, 2018 Bagagarin Chulu

Little side valley. Plenty of camping options.

May 3rd, 2018 Taiga Pitch Offroad Camping

Moritz and Olga just connected the newly build camp to the water and electricity. We have no illusion that they will build out this place into a wonderful rest stop along the connection roads between Mongolia and Russia, but also between the west and far east part of Russia.

Olga bakes some irresistible good bread and Moritz can help you out with solving your vehicles mechanical issues.

We are looking forward to see this place evolve into a full blown overlanders meeting place.

April 30th, 2018 Avtolider Sto / Авто Лидер

Great bunch of people with good car knowledge. I only needed a place to leave my old oil, and a Mongolian mechanic (who spoke good English) helped me change the oil and filter.

March 24th, 2018 chinese market (off-road eldorado)

Bought some gas bottles and housing isolation for the cold the coming months. If you need a winch, bull bar, led lighting for your vehicle, this is the place.

July 25th, 2017 Super Forest Road

Of the main dirt road. A little open spot along the confluence of two little fast flowing streams. We think it is used for a logging camp when they harvest pine trees. Lots of wood for great campfires. Bring a saw!

July 18th, 2017 Meakawa river camp

Free river camp site at the dead end of a narrow street. Little 45 degree angle parking lot for about 10 cars. You could park in the riverbed, but don't know how dangerous that might be?

July 10th, 2017 Taihama beach

A free camping with access to a sandy beach. Open all year round. Mainly for tenters and weekend visitors.

July 10th, 2017 Little harbor

A small little harbor. There is a paid campsite just along the main road. With showers and water if you need that kind of thing. We just parked here for the night and had a lovely evening with the little crabs roaming around. Early in the morning since fishermen take out their boats. Very quiet place.

July 3rd, 2017 Anan beach

At the dead end of a long narrow track along the beach. There is an abandoned little parking. Defunct toilet building. Some shade. Very quiet at night. Local people go for a stroll or go fishing. Weekends may see some more activity.

June 8th, 2017 Yamanakako beach

Lapping waterfront, sandy beach with a splendid view of Mt Fuji.

January 12th, 2017 Miyajima beach

Parked overlooking a deserted beach. There is a little shrine and numerous deer. The road leading to this place is very narrow and winding. Big rigs would have a very difficult job getting here.

November 29th, 2016 Saito burial mounds

Small parking next to the second burial site. Toilets nearby.

November 26th, 2016 Cape Hyuga Green Park

Large parking overlooking the ocean next to a huge green Park for playing. Walking paths with view points towards the sea.

November 9th, 2016 Aso - Michi No Eki

The Michi No Eki are the famous roadside stations. These are on local main roads and not on the expressways (toll roads). This one has a small shop selling boxed food and fresh vegetables. Also a very good Tourist Information booth with free fast WiFi. Nearby are affordable Onsen (hotbath).
