In September 2007 I had an amazing adventure in Mongolia. Though I loved the solitude of the Gobi, which is one of the least populated regions on earth, it was also fantastic staying with the nomads in their yurts, which they pack up and move up to 4 times a year. Also, the blue lakes and high peaks of Altai Tavan Bogd National Park, which is on the border with Russia and China, were simply breathtaking. Cheers!
