HOW COLD IS THE TRANS-SIBERIAN IN WINTER?
It may come as a surprise but probably not as cold as you think! Firstly, anywhere indoors is extremely well heated in Russia, Mongolia and China. Secondly, the cold is a very dry cold and so providing you wear the right clothing in layers and keep the wind out you'll find you can keep warm even for extended periods outside.
what are the advantages of travelling in winter?
Firstly, the whole route looks extremely beautiful covered in snow. Also, winter travel will also get you closer to the Russians themselves as there are far fewer tourists and a certain appreciation that you are choosing to visit at this time. Lastly, certain bragging rights come with having crossed Siberia in winter!
