"Out of the corner of my eye I spot a flash of movement as a huge heard of Himalayan Blue Sheep runs together across a hillside; from my vantage point high above they appear as a school of fish floating in and out of the patches of mist that cling to the slopes of the valley. I reach for my camera and then stop, knowing that a photo will never do this place justice."
"One night, Bulga came to get us out of our ger. We went outside and looked into the direction she was pointing. It was the most incredible sight. We saw the moon rise. A large red disc rose from the horizon into the sky. It was one of the most memorable moments of the entire trip. All our city trappings normally block the incredible spectacle of this natural phenomenon." Join adventure travel writer Lisa Niver as she takes us back to her journey through Mongolia.

"The air was humid, the road was rocky, and the path just seemed to keep going uphill. I was hiking Japan’s “Samurai Trail” (on Mountain Travel Sobek’s Walking Japan trip) but I felt like a peasant. Sweaty, thirsty, dust-covered, I arrived with my group at the village of Hirasawa, a drab collection of concrete buildings linked by a tangle of telephone wires. It hardly seemed the right reward for a difficult day of hiking. Little did I know this unassuming destination would become a surprise highlight of our trip, a gold-medal payoff we’d be talking about for years."
