Asia Rivers

THE TEAM: Zand Martin and Bria Schurke

WHAT: Canoeing 1,800 miles across Mongolia, Siberia, and the Russian Far East

HOW: Beginning in central Mongolia, Zand and Bria traveled by canoe through the canyons of the Chuluut and Ider rivers; paddled Russia’s Lake Baikal, the largest freshwater body (by volume) in the world, then continued east through the Amur watershed toward the Sea of Okhotsk in the far east of Russia, a place that regularly records the coldest temperatures on Earth. The Asia Rivers leg capped Martin’s four-year, 15,000-mile, human-powered crossing of North American, Europe and Asia.
