Flashes of the Altai

Three childhood friends set out for the far western corner of Mongolia to combine mountain biking and packrafting in a self-supported adventure into the unknown. Never having attempted a mountain bike to packraft link-up, they decided it was a great idea to travel to one of the most remote and sparsely populated places in the world to try it out.

 My god this was inspirational. From both a Trip Report and a filming perspective, The amount of gear you had to carry for this on a self-supported bikepack must have insane. At least 15kg back of the hand calculation.

 Seriously, the videography and the images you chose to highlight, that falcon, breathtaking. Adventures are like that, sometimes you are prepared, sometimes not, makes me want to go on my next one!

 Wow. Super awesome film work, and to think... You packed all that gear to capture it so well. It definitely paid off. I feel like there should be a full feature on this trip and perhaps this was just a teaser for it.

Don't think so as I saw in person up front a golden eagle coupleof weeks ago at a falconry centre and it's head was as the name suggests golden.
