Mongolia is stunning but brutal. The Mongolian term for the deadliest storms is 'Zud'. Running late in the season, we rode our arses off and left the heat of Gobi Desert to reach the freezing ice storms of Mongolia's north-west territory before the weather cut off our access to the Russian border. The Zud which chased across the Altai Mountain range was ferocious, and this was one of the few images we captured of experience.
