In BIG Pictures: the hauntingly beautiful landscapes of Mongolia

Mongolia8

The landlocked country in east-central Asia is almost its synonymous with remoteness. Bordered by Russia to the north and China to the south, east and west, Mongolia is a rugged, adventurous travel destination steeped in tradition, shrouded with mystery and populated with hardy nomads. Regular contributor Lee Hubbard was lucky enough to experience the beguiling country en-route to China on the Trans-Siberian railway journey. From characterful llamas to parched deserts here are the hauntingly beautiful landscapes of Mongolia in BIG pictures…

Lee mostly spent his formative years as a junior Spielberg wannabe, devouring movies in front of a cinema screen, but then a “year out” after graduating turned into a not-too-shabby six years of working, travelling and volunteering across the globe and thus a change of career beckoned. Attempting to satisfy his curiosity and passion for discovery both at home and abroad, he became a concierge at a top London hotel and a member of the prestigious Les Clefs d’Or, whilst still finding time to visit over 60 countries. Although UK based, through travelling he’s cannily found a way to combine all his passions – seeking out film locations, off-the-beaten track adventures and wildlife encounters with orangutans, whale sharks, gorillas and polar bears all while wearing an eternal smile on his face. He counts New Zealand, Tanzania, Denmark and Borneo among his favourite travel destinations. Follow Lee on Google+
