Contributor BaBi created this amazing aerial view of the Gobi Desert in Mongolia.  The great desert covers much of the southern part of the country, as well as large stretches of northwestern China.  It's known as a rain shadow desert, caused by the Tibetan Plateau blocking precipitation that would otherwise move into the area from the south.  It's the fifth largest desert in the world in terms of land area.  Unlike most deserts, the landscape consists primarily of exposed rock rather than sand.

How's this for an epic motorcycle trip - Mongolia!  The republic in northeast Asia is not exactly known for its roads, but it didn't stop the bikers in this video.  They were able to use their bikes to get across some incredibly varied terrain, ranging from deserts to vast plateaus to forests to spectacular rivers and snowfields.  Throw in riding with herds of the country's famed wild horses, and you've got a pretty memorable trip.  It also begs the question, what happens if your bike breaks down?

Mongolia is an Asian country nestled between China and Russia that is known for its expansive and rugged landscape. It is currently the most sparsely populated sovereign state in the world. The area was home to the  Mongol Empire, founded in 1206 by Genghis Khan, which went on to conquer vast stretches of Europe and Asia and in the process slaughter millions.  Drone pilot BaBi headed out into the beautiful wilderness, showcasing plenty of wild animals, green pastures, and rocky terrain in this aerial film.

With about 3 million people spread over a land area of over 1.5 million square km (about 600k square mi.), Mongolia is one of the world's least densely populated countries.  However, it's also one of the most urbanized, as about half the population lives in its capital city Ulaanbaatar (Ulan Bator), situated in a valley in the north-central part of the country.  In this video, you'll get a bird's eye view of this amazing city, known (and for good reason) as the world's coldest capital city.
