The Mongol Rally Presents The 10 Stupidiest Ways To Reach Mongolia!

The 2012 Mongol Rally reached its climax this month as the final teams crossed the finish line in Ulan Bator, Mongolia after 10,000 miles across mountains, deserts and some of the most remote terrain on the planet, raising around £2.3 million for various charities.

This year saw 265 teams taking part in what was one of the toughest years to date with torrential rain, flash floods and swollen rivers across Mongolia. There is no set route from start to finish line, and all drivers must not have an engine size bigger than 1.2 litres.

One of the most famous aspects of the Mongol rally is the unusual driving teams and vehicles. 2012 included a couple on their honeymoon dressed as bride and groom, a car with a bathtub on its roof and a conservatory on wheels.

To celebrate the closing of the 2012 season, The Adventurists (the company behind the epic journey) have put together a video of the 'top ten most stupid ways to reach Mongolia.'
