I flew on Langaki Borneo via Kuala Lumpur. Flight can not just. 2 times our Boeing - 737 almost touched the ground, and then suddenly soared upward. The commander was afraid to land the plane, due to heavy rainfall that was somehow directly over the airport, and not even at himself in Kuala Lumpur.
As you know, only mountains that were not better can be better than mountains. From the school lessons of geography, I knew that the Urals were, in fact, mountains too, although for some reason no one was serious about them. And on the map, Ural is temptingly located not far from Moscow, considering that I have already seen the Caucasus a bit. In this post, this was the main reason why this trip was started, and an attempt to convince skeptics that the Urals are completely worthy of the attention of travelers. Under the cut, there is a high-mountain lake and the Zyuratkul range, the Taganai National Park, and also the lakes Turgoyak and Bannoye (Yakty-Kul), which are popular with local tourists.
Kamchatka! Probably not in Russia a man who would not hear of it. This, of course, because in almost every village and certainly in each class has its own "Kamchatka". It does not just far away (in Russia there is, thank God, and far away places). Kamchatka - it is an amazing and fantastic world where high mountains, clean, full of fish rivers, mysterious geysers - in a word, the kingdom of Far Far Away, but despite the popularity of the word, very few people were there who saw firsthand the fire-breathing, mountainous peninsula.
Pitcairn Islands (Pitcairn; in the southern Pacific Ocean, population 50 people) - one of the most difficult to visit the countries of the world. Pitcairn, of course, visa-free, but there is no airfield here to go sea 1.5 days from the nearest airport: Gambier archipelago in French Polynesia
