The best time to take the golden ea­gle Trans-Siberian is sum­mer, when Siberia is a riot of wild­flow­ers and ver­dant pas­ture. Once you leave the urals, the train en­ters the vast­ness of south­ern Siberia, a flat land­scape punc­tu­ated by ex­pan­sive lakes, in­clud­ing lake Baikal, the world’s deep­est. As you dip into mon­go­lia, forests of birch give way to un­du­lat­ing hills and deep val­leys dot­ted with yurts. A stop at ulan ede (left) is an op­por­tu­nity to wit­ness a wrestling match and learn more about lo­cal cul­ture.
