Robust travelers would do well to check out National Geographic Adventurer's '25 Greatest Adventures in the World'

Hot Tip

It seems every magazine (including this one) is caught up in millennial list madness. How can you capitalize on the trend? Robust travelers would do well to check out National Geographic Adventurer's "25 Greatest Adventures in the World." Six of the best are right here in Asia. Modern cowboys should head for Mongolia to explore the mountainous Arhangay region by horseback. Cyclists will want to visit Indian Kashmir for a mountain biking adventure--outside the combat zone, naturally. Vietnam made the list for the limitless sea-kayaking possibilities along its limestone coastline. In China, try rafting round the Great Bend of the Yangtze--almost twice as deep as the Grand Canyon. The tiny Himalayan kingdom of Bhutan is on the list because of its unique, carefully preserved culture. But hurry: satellite TV arrived in Bhutan this summer. By our own judgment, all six choices are truly excellent adventures. Where to start? See for details.
