Whistling Arrow Adventures Adventure Holidays from Hong Kong

[18/07/13] 

Adventure holidays have become quite the thing. For instance, one of the more foolhardy guys in the NecesCity office recently ran the Marathon des Sables, a 250-km running quest across the Sahara. Why, you ask? We don’t have a clue, but there are other types of wild holiday, the type that involves adventure without the very real chance of death. And this is where Whistling Arrow comes in, an adventure travel specialist based right here in HK, that’s got it all mapped up. Most of it anyway.

Founded in 2009 by Adrian Bottomley, Whistling Arrow offers a series of extreme trips from trekking in the footsteps of Tibetan pilgrims to walking up a volcano in Eastern Indonesia. The other itineraries include an awesome trek from Shangri-La to Northern Yunnan, China; climbing the north face of the 5,396-metre Haba Snow Mountain; and a sea safari in the Philippines. That last one is more our speed: less walking and more holidaying.

But that’s not all. Adrian’s thinking of adding a trip to Mt. Otgontenger in Mongolia, but before he does, he’s looking for a few adventurous souls to test it out with him. Apparently it’s a little visited part of the country but one of the most spectacular. Because the voyage isn’t yet commercialised, there’ll be a significant discount on the price compared to the other trips which start at US$2,000. Now that’d be a real adventure. Taking on a Mongolian expedition before the health & safety men get out their clipboard. Just get in touch with Adrian, mention us at NecesCity, and let him know you’re game.

Have you got the stones for it?
