Whole route in Google Earth

The whole route is available here as a Google Earth kmz file. Just download and click to open the route in Google Earth (as long as you've got Google Earth on your computer).

All of the separate sections are available here to download and use to plan your own route. It's a good way to see the absolute emptiness of Mongolia and the magnificence of the Ile valley and the Tien Shan in China. The Altai and the Karakorums look pretty good too.
