Joe Johnstone is a mountain guide, expedition leader, adventurer and documentary filmmaker. During his work as a guide he has carried out 18 ascents of Kilimanjaro, 4 treks to Everest Base camp and over 100 days leading treks in Mongolia. He is now based in the country where he lived in the Ger District of Ulaanbaatar for 8 months over the winter of 2013/14 and spent 3 months living with nomadic herdsmen in 2015. In the winter of that year, in temperatures of -50c, he attempted a number of solo first ascents in the Mongolian Altai Mountains. The Khuvsgul Nuur Crossing is the first of a series of expeditions that Joe is undertaking as part of the ‘Last Nomad Project’. This project is backed by the Mongolian Arts Council and National Broadcasting Company and will document the current way of life, and highlight the issues faced by those living in the Mongolian wilderness.
