After cycling across 16 countries on 3 continents and walking across Transcaucasia, Chinese “human-powered” traveler, Xu Jiangjun, and his Russian travel partner Fyodor Lebed, decided to traverse the frozen lake of Baikal in the late winter of 2017, pursuing the biggest goal in his traveling career. During his 23-day journey in the Siberian wilderness, Xu Jiangjun's camera became his closest friend as he recorded the ups and downs of the hardships in front of him. From feelings of excitement to desperation, traversing Baikal would be Xu Jiangjun's greatest achievement to date.

Ivan Xu is a Chinese adventurer and Ultimate Frisbee athlete. He spent two years cycling the world a journey of 14,000 kilometers across 16 countries and 3 continents. More recently, Ivan has walked across Transcaucasia, cross-skated across South Korea, and this past winter he traversed across frozen Lake Baikal in Siberia, Russia. He has won dozens of tournaments domestically and internationally.
