Ulaanbaatar Murun roadA new paved road connecting Murun town – the center of Khuvsgul aimag with Ulaanbaatar has been complete. The opening ceremony for the road with 253.3 km of length was held on December 7, 2014.

According to the speech delivered by Khuvsgul aimag governor Erdenebaatar the new road not only will stimulate tourism but also contribute to the economic turnover and well being of citizens. Road, the construction of which took about 6 years to complete mainly due to fund shortage, now effectively reduces travel time between Murun and Ulaanbaatar  from 20 to 10 hours.

Despite government funds already being allocated for the construction of paved road connecting Ulaanbaatar with Umnugobi (complete in September 2014), Khuvsgul and Dornod aimags within 2014, the Dornod road is yet to see its completion in early spring of 2015.
