Travel: The Russian made Furgon 4 WD van in Ikh Nart Nature Reserve, Dornogovi, Mongolia. This is not a luxurious vehicle, and it is a good thing our driver was also a mechanic, but the high clearance, short wheel base, and 4WD of the Furgon got us through some very challenging conditions, mostly high snow banks. The engine is situated in the center of the vehicle next to the driver.... handy because you don't have to exit into the cold to access the engine! It is also not a fast vehicle, but if you know how to operate it and repair it it can go places where a landcruiser or many other cars cannot go... a landcruiser high centers on snow much quicker... we experienced it!
