You want to take us where?
When we say we are going to the Republic of Sakha, most people give us a blank look. If we try Yakutia (its alternative name), that doesn't help much. But if we say Siberia, people start to be able to place it - and then dismiss it as a cold, desolate wasteland.
That's a mistake, as this vast area is incredibly beautiful. How vast is it? Almost the size of India, but with a tiny percentage of the population. So it's a big, beautiful, empty wilderness. Perfect for exploring on horseback!
We take packhorses into the taiga, a roadless mix of low valleys, mountains, lakes, huge braided rivers, and forest. And yes some bog too. This is the land of bears, moose, and snow sheep to keep a watch for.
