Riding in the Hoofprints of Genghis Khan

Australian Long Rider Tim Cope set off to follow the trail of Genghis Khan in 2004. The journey lasted four years

The 10,000 kilometres (6,000 miles) journey took Tim from Mongolia’s Altai Mountains, into the plains of Kazakhstan, the high alpine pastures of the Tien Shan and Pamirs in Kyrgyzstan, then headed westward on the fringes of the Kyzil-Kum desert to the dying Aral Sea. From that point he crossed into Russia, then Ukraine along the coastland of the Black sea, before ending up in Hungary.
