Traceroute results different than show ip bgp

Hi, our company has multiple sites and are all connected by MPLS by a service provider. If I do a traceroute and show ip bgp for an ip present in a different site, i see different results - (Please note the difference in AS numbers). Why is this so? 

###### show ip bgp results #######

RTR1#show ip bgp 10.97.47.192

BGP routing table entry for 10.97.46.0/23, version 2020

Hi,

Hi,

look at the P-router part in these nice documents:

https://www.packetmischief.ca/2015/05/04/walking-with-packets-traceroute-through-mpls-cloud/

http://www.cisco.com/c/en/us/support/docs/multiprotocol-label-switching-mpls/mpls/26585-mpls-traceroute.html

I believe those AS  numbers displayed are not coming within the ICMP TTL-expired packets.

They are probably just added by the Cisco router on which you issued the traceroute command.

Can you just check which AS numbers belong to the IP addresses listed in your traceroute output?

Best regards,

Milan
