Action Asia - - SIGNPOSTS -

Start­ing next is­sue, Ac­tion Asia is widen­ing our fo­cus. We’ll still be bring­ing you the best of Asia’ s out­doors, but we also want to re­flect the grow­ing in­ter­est among Asian sand ex­pats based here in go­ing fur­ther afield for their ad­ven­tures. Think of the num­ber of Asians com­pet­ing in the Ul­tra Trail Mont Blanc (UTMB) trail race for in­stance, or trend­ing des­ti­na­tions such as Ice­land or South Africa. In the Jan/feb is­sue, we’ll get you started with 18 for 18: a dozen-and-a-half rea­sons to think longer haul next year.

Be­sides that, we’ll have Na­tional Ge­o­graphic Ex­pert Car­roll Dun­ham writ­ing about her re­cent raft­ing trip with pho­tog­ra­pher Jock Mont­gomery through the rust-red canyons of the Zan­skar River in North In­dia. River de­scents of a dif­fer­ent kind fea­ture in Gus Schi­avon’s lat­est fea­ture for us as he checks out the canyon­ing po­ten­tial of the rivers of Iran, a coun­try in­creas­ingly crop­ping up on ad­ven­ture itin­er­ar­ies. Then we switch from rivers to peaks, with writer Ryan Stu­art and pho­tog­ra­pher Ryan Creary rid­ing into the land of the Kham in Ti­bet, past Minya Konka.
