This video documents this years summer trek in Central Asia. I just slapped everything together because I could not wait. Maybe I'll do a short "beauty-cut" later, but generally I found it way too cumbersome to put down and re-shoulder my 28kg (60+ lbs) backpack for videographic purposes. So I don't really have a lot of footage options...anyway, this footage will be a nice reminder of an incredible holiday adventure. I have to say in all my travels, this trip ranks among the best. Kyrgyzstan is highly recommended.
We first did the 11-day Terskey Alatoo traverse with 4 passes scratching at 4000 meters (13000 feet) in 8 days and then continued to the amazingly beautiful high plains of Syrty (also just shy of 4000 m).
Greetings to everybody we met along the way.
Note I: the one talking bit is on the ҡымыҙ - the national drink of Kyrgyzstan (and beyond) - a drink of "acquired taste".
Note II: Yes, I know. No video of mine should ever feature "Modern Talking", but this is what the drivers blast at you in a Marshrutka and I wanted to be authentic :-P
