Great Escapes: Flashes of the Altai - Mongolia

Three childhood friends set out to traverse the Mongolian Altai via mountain bikes and packrafts for a self-supported adventure into the unknown. Sure, the trio had never attempted a mountain bike to packraft back-to-back double header before, but what of it? They set off into one of the most remote and sparsely populated places and now they have this awesome video by Joey Schusler to prove it. The only inhabitants of the region are Kazakh nomads, the last people on earth who continue the tradition of hunting with golden eagles. This is not an adventure these young lads will soon forget.
