Partner Spotlight: A Relentless Pursuit For Ibex

AN ADVENTURE ACROSS THE WORLD

Around the world and across cultures, there is no animal more representative of the mountains and mountain culture than the ibex. From Europe to the Middle East and North Africa or the great mountain ranges of Central Asia, China, and Russia, their sweeping horns and the unforgiving environments they call home have captivated humans for centuries.

In East of the Sun, join a team from The Journal of Mountain Hunting as they travel to the Pamir Mountains of Tajikistan to pursue this iconic symbol of mountain life.

Far away from home and way outside their comfort zones, they faced high altitudes, treacherous roads, and an austere landscape that was as unforgiving as it was awe inspiring.
