Tim Cope – Mongolia to Hungary on the Trail of Genghis Khan

Adventurer and author Tim Cope shares his epic three-year journey through the land of the nomads, from Mongolia to the Danube, across the great Eurasian steppe with three horses and his dog, Tigon.

Tim – National Geographic Adventure Honoree 2007 and Australian Adventurer of the Year 2006 – speaks fluent Russian and guides in Siberia and Mongolia. He has spent the best part of a decade travelling Russia, Mongolia, and Central Asia by bicycle, row boat, skis, horse, camel and many other means. Most of all Tim enjoys coming to know people in their home environments by traveling in traditional and local ways. He will be talking to us about his most renowned journey: on the trail of Genghis Khan.
