As a photographer who travels six months out of the year, my expedition to Mongolia was far from a tedious business trip. The country’s unique cultures and unspoiled landscapes make it a destination unlike any other. Known as the “end of the earth,” Mongolia is the world’s most sparsely populated country with only two people per square kilometer (six per square mile). In contrast, Macau boasts a population density of almost 22,000 people per square kilometer (58,000 per square mile). Additionally, Mongolia is the second largest landlocked country in the world after Kazakhstan, with the Pacific’s Yellow Sea located 700 kilometers (435 miles) to the east, being the closest ocean.
