In 2016, there was an attempted military coup in Turkey, usually a very popular country on the Rally, one day before the launch. Previous Mongol Ralliers have found themselves caught in the middle of the 2008 Russian invasion of Georgia, inconvenienced by the Kyrgyz Revolution of 2010, and frequently diverted away from the Pamir Highway in the notoriously unstable Tajikistan.
Though our influence and power globally is growing, we can’t yet guarantee Mongol Ralliers world-wide free passage and diplomatic immunity, so in order to not be caught out stay up to date with what’s going on in the world. We’re not about to tell you where you should and shouldn't go - that’s up to you - but we heartily recommend doing your own research and making an informed decision.
Things change quickly so it's best to be aware of current affairs and keep checking up on things regularly throughout your trip.
