Второй день в Китае и у меня он сегодня начался в 5 утра. В 5:50 уже выезжать планировали в сторону пустыни. Сегодня мы там встречались с группой «реконессанс» - командой, которая пишет маршрут будущего ралли «Шелковой путь». Подсматривали за их работой и мешали им немножко. С утра в песках было очень холодно - плюс пять. Надели все что было, но при съемке, бегая, согреваешься. У нас тут замечательные водители местные, которые очень хорошо ездят по пескам. Ниче не понимают, ржут все время. Пока мы писали интервью, они откопали какие-то корни. Оказалось ценные штуки - растут только в этом регионе в песках и стоят доллар за килограмм при сдаче на переработку. Делают из них эликсиры и настойки для мужчин😳. Эта хреновина тяжеленная - килограмма на 2, а они там таких «цветочков» накопали целый неподъемный мешок. Как они их нашли - не знаю, так как растут под землей, зато много сразу. Днем, кстати, было очень жарко - почти 25С, у меня даже нос обгорел. Море незабываемых впечатлений и килограмм песка, высыпавшийся, когда я вошла в гостиницу. Сейчас у нас почти восемь вечера, а сил уже нет. Пытаюсь переписать весь отснятый материал #мои366дней #китай #съемки #пустыня #gobidesert #recco #silkwayrally2018

Scientists estimate less than 40 of these #bears still exist in the wild. @Global_Wildlife_Conservation scientist Dr. Jim Sanderson and I were lucky to see the world's rarest #bear (Gobi Bear) while trekking through the Gobi Desert of Mongolia.

Going through my archive this weekend I found my favorite Mongolian camel lady. I have ridden her bactrian camels many times on my various trips to Gobi desert in Mongolia. Riding through the sand dunes on these magnificent creatures is an incredible experience. I plan on doing another workshop in Mongolia in the near future. Stay tuned. @thephotosociety @natgeo . . . #mongolia #gobidesert #gobi #bactriancamel #archive

Day six - Totally desert time time now as we head deeper into the Gobi, ending the day at the Saxaul cliffs which were the place of lots of important fossil and dinorsaor bone find in the 1920's. Known to westerns at the flaming cliffs after the it was renamed by archeologists after its burning red colour during sunset. Totally fell in love with this place, could have spent all day there! . . . . #flamingcliffs #mongolia #gobidesert #adventures #camels #sandyhair

Hiking up sand dunes is WAY harder than you'd expect! Because the sand isn't packed, for every step up you sink back down 50%! However, the sand you displace with each step flows just like water sploshing across a floor; I'm fascinated by how fluidly it flows forward. #🏜 #🐫 #gobidesert #china #remoteplaces #travelblog #gaytravelblog #gaycation #hiking #desert #desertlandscapes #desertplants #scruff #thegaypassport #gayfit #gayadventure #instagayboy #gaysnap #gayboy #gaycute #gayhike #gaytravel #gayfollow #cutegayboy #sweaty #offthebeatenpath #gaysummer #backpackingasia #boytrip #traveleverywhere

Travel | Why we need to take photos from cameras rather than our eyes? “后来我又去了很多城市,慢慢就不想记录了,记录得太频繁,有时候会忘记去感受。我明明在这了,为什么还要用相机去代替我的眼睛。很长的一段时间,有过这样的疑惑。” “记录最大的魔力就是能把你一瞬间带回到过去某个你本来即将忘却的时刻,然后心生感概。” — sᴜɪᴛ . . . . . #northwestchina #大西北 #戈壁 #gobidesert #urbanandstreet #fujifilm #filmphotography #filmphoto #analogphotography #analoguefeatures #olympus #filmcolor #travelblogger #travelphotography #travelblog #instatravel #ig_color #justgoshoot #recordmylife #photoforfun #createcommune #lifestyleblogger #travellover #agameoftones #beautifuldestinations #artofvisuals #shotzdelight #instamagazine_ #somewheremagazine #suitandtieya

“Khongor sand dunes” One of the largest and most spectacular sand dunes in Mongolia. Rising as high 200m, the dunes are 7-8km wide and about 180km long. Another name of this sand dune is “singing sands”. The sand dunes makes a singing sound while you climb. It makes you feel extraordinary comfort amd infinite peace and to see the sunrise. You will have a great experience if you visit to the Mongolian Gobi desert.

I'd always heard of the Gobi Desert but never thought I'd ever travel through it. Waking up, not knowing where I was, it took me a while to realise I was actually there.

#Repost @whatthehellisrosedoingnow with @get_repost ・・・ The camels place their bets as Rob from New Zealand takes on Red Herder. Wrestling is as commom as riding a horse in Mongolia. The Mongolians are exceptional wrestlers and the training regime of survival as a nomadic herder has yet to be replicated. #gobicoldcamelexpedition #wrestling #mongolia #gobi #camels #mongolianwrestling #nomadlife #nomadic #gobidesertmongolia #gobidesert #wrestler #herders #mongoliancamel #bactriancamel

Рядом почти с любой достопримечательностью в Монголии можно остановиться вот в таком кемпинге с домиками в виде традиционного для Монголии жилища - юрты. #mongolia  #mongoliatravel  #asia #ulaanbaatar   #travelasia  #asiatravel #монголия  #улаанбаатар  #уланбатор #natgeotravel  #natgeotravelru  #travel #traveling  #travelgram  #travelingram # traveler #instatravel  #instatraveling #instatrip  #touris  #tourist  #trip #путешествие  #путешествия #путешествуем  #desert  #gobi #gobidesert  #туризм #пустыня #гоби

В одном из юрточных городков в пустыне Гоби. Как и многие экзотические хостелы и отели, юрта не очень комфортна для проживания привыкшего к комфорту городского жителя. Кровати не удобные, да еще каждый час приходится вставать и подбрасывать топливо в печь, иначе не долго и окочуриться. Зато можно всем говорить, что ночевал в традиционном монгольском жилище. #mongolia  #mongoliatravel  #asia #ulaanbaatar   #travelasia  #asiatravel #монголия  #улаанбаатар  #уланбатор #natgeotravel  #natgeotravelru  #travel #traveling  #travelgram  #travelingram # traveler #instatravel  #instatraveling #instatrip  #touris  #tourist  #trip #путешествие  #путешествия #путешествуем  #desert  #gobi #gobidesert  #туризм #пустыня #гоби
