Trip Reports

Every so often I happen to find, or am made aware of, a trip report which is utterly outstanding. An epic adventure, beautifully described in words and gorgeous photos which want to make you pack up and head there immediately. In the Golden Mountains of Altai is such a trip report. A highly recommended read.
