Meet Katya

I've been travelling around the world since 2009 and have visited more than 40 countries in Europe, South America, Asia and Africa, had my home in those that I wished to stay longer. In my student years, I started working with Sundowners Overland as a Vodkatrain Honcho, and in 2011 I led my first trip across Russia, Mongolia and China. Since then I've never looked back and return to the Sundowners Overland team each year.

Favourite thing about Tour Leading: Being able to show people beautiful pieces of the world is very rewarding. And I love to be on road.

Favourite place to visit and why: In Central Asia I'm at home, and love Kyrgyzstan for its mountains. Bukhara in Uzbekistan and Isfahan in Iran are among my favourite cities in the world.

On the road tips: Live the experience - in any situation there's new knowledge. And be open-minded.

Hobbies, achievements and dreams: : I love mountains, it's the whole world for me. I climb rocks, ascend peaks and fly my glider when I'm not busy with Sundowners.
