Several-time Drone Video of the Week Finalist Makhorov brings us this stunning drone video from Russia's Altai Mountains, home of some of the world's most remote and beautiful scenery.  The range, which runs through southern Siberia and also covers portions of China, Mongolia, and Kazakhstan, has peaks as high as 4.5k meters above sea level (14.8k ft.).  Sparsely populated and studded with a number of giant lakes, the Altai's are famously difficult to access (particularly from within Russia) due to a lack of passes.    

China's Great Wall


The Great Wall of China


The Great Wall is perhaps the most widely recognized site in China and one of the most well known in the world.  The wall, which was built over centuries to protect the Chinese heartland from the ever-present threat of invasion over the Central Asian plains, spans a total of 21k km (13k mi).  Best accessible from the Chinese capital Beijing, the wall is a monument to the human will.  Contributor and pilot Flyusanywhere used a DJI Phantom 4 drone to create this magnificent aerial mini tour of the Great Wild Wall.

Although China is the world's most populous country, most of its 1.2 billion inhabitants live on or near the coast.  Parts of the vast interior of the country are much less densely populated.  One of these is the Ningxia Hui Autonomous Region, which sits in the north-central part of the country and which was once part of the Gansu Province.  Contributor Mattcoq traveled to Ninxia with a DJI Phantom 3 drone, creating a spectacular aerial video of this land which features landscapes ranging from mountains to desert.

Contributor and FPV pilot Gespar used a racing drone to capture China's answer to the iconic "Hollywood" sign in the hills over Los Angeles.  The city is Qingdao (Tsingtao), and it's one of the biggest cities in northeastern China.  Better known for its beer, it's now home to a multi-billion dollar film production studio.  Which is why the sign says (translated from Mandarin) is "Movie Metropolis of the East".  This video was shot from a racing drone being flown first person view ("FPV") with video goggles.

Contributor and drone pilot borje_zy brings us this amazing aerial tour of Tianjin, China's fourth largest city by population.  The northeasternmost of China's major cities, Tianjin is also the principal port serving the capital city Beijing which is only a 90 minute drive away.  Founded in the 15th century, Tianjin also has great cultural and historical importance, particularly during the Boxer Rebellion at the turn of the 20th century which inaugurated a long period of civil unrest in China.

Beijing's Mountainous Surroundings


Clouds and mountains, Beijing, China


China's capital Beijing is one of the world's few large cities not located on a coast or major river.  Rather, the great city once known as Peking owes its existence to being at the north end of the North China Plain.  Surrounded on all other sides by mountains, Peking served a historical role guarding the approaches from the Eurasian steppe into what is in effect the heart of China on the great alluvial plain.  Contributor borje_xy created this amazing drone videos of the mountains surrounding the capital city.

Japan's Castle in the Sky


Castle in the sky


Japan is known in part for its "castles in the sky": hilltop or mountaintop castles which can appear to be floating on the clouds in the right atmospheric conditions.  Top contributor and Instagram phenom Danielkordan definitely got it right with this stunning aerial capture of Echizen Ono Castle, which does indeed appear to be floating on the clouds.  It's located in the Fukui Prefecture in western Honshu.  The castle was constructed in the late 16th century, and has been modified numerous times since then.
