IT’S SNOW TIME

Action Asia - - SIGNPOSTS -

Win­ter is al­most here so next is­sue will be serv­ing up sto­ries from the snows of the Al­tai Moun­tains in Mon­go­lia and Ta­jik­istan, to get two very con­trast­ing views on what ski­ing means to peo­ple there. We’ll also be in the depths of Eastern Ti­bet, trekking up into the sa­cred moun­tains of Golog (shown be­low), still largely un­ex­plored and a par­adise for botanists, am­a­teur or oth­er­wise. Round­ing out the is­sue’s fea­ture ar­ti­cles, if you’re pre­par­ing for a trip to the snows at the end of the year or early next year, you might be need­ing some fly new gear, so

don’t miss this win­ter’s Great Gear Guide which will pro­file our pick of the lat­est skis, boards, hel­mets, gog­gles and more. Look out too for a story on Asia’s pan­golins, unas­sum­ing and gen­tle souls that are un­der grave threat from poach­ing for use in tra­di­tional medicine, while the fi­nal in­stall­ment of Si­mon Pridmore’s se­ries on get­ting into scuba looks at the big is­sues around chil­dren learning to dive. Plus, of course, there’s the usual mix of news, views and re­views from around the world of ad­ven­ture.
