This is one of my favorite photos of all time. It was taken by a close friend of mine, Anthony Willoughby, on our expedition to Mustagh Ata, in a small town called Tashkurgan, high up on the Pamir Plateau in western China just near the Wakhan Corridor of Afghanistan. "Pamir" means "Roof of the World" and there they play a Central Asian version of Polo called "Buzkashi," with a sheep carcass.
Five Miles High
This was probably the most difficult photo I have ever taken, not just because it took three years of planning and one prior failed expedition to get to this spot, but also because it was -15°F and my fingers were too cold to move.
