"The Potanin Glacier is the longest glacier in Mongolia, it stretches about 14 kilometres and located through in the Altai Tavan Bogd mountain in Altai Mountains. I was on my way to climb Malchin Peak (13,287 ft) and the whole environment, combined with the constant rain, snow, and sun, really felt like I was on a different planet."
