Video of the week: The Transcaucasian Trail

This week, we join a team of explorers mapping out the Caucasus Mountains

Published 3 Feb 2017, 16:56 GMT

Last year a troupe of explorers set out to map out the first long distance hiking trail through the Caucasus Mountains that stretch majestically through Georgia, Armenia and Azerbaijan.

"We traveled to the Caucasus to map hiking trails and find new routes in these gorgeous mountains. (And we brought our drone for some epic footage!) We are working to put together a long-distance hiking path across the region, which would spur sustainable tourism and encourage the conservation of these incredible landscapes."
