I'm planning to travel the Trans Mongolian from Beijing to Moscow with stopovers in Ulanbatar and Irkutsk in October.

Anyone with tips on the weather in October, whether there will be anything to do and see in October?

All kinds of help appreciated!

Wow, you did the opposite trip that I did. I did Moscow to Beijing with stops in Ulaan Baator and Irkutsk in October of 2005.

For information, check out my blog. I put all my tips and tricks and prices in there. Here's the link: GregW travels the rails.

As for weather, it was nice this year (10C in Irkutsk, 15C in Ulaan Baator), but that was unusual for the time of year. A lady I was speaking to in Ulaan Baator said that last October (2004) it was -20C in late October.
