A young Welsh adventurer has become the first person to walk 1,500 miles solo across Mongolia - one of the world's most desolate countries.
23-year-old Ash Dykes from Colwyn Bay walked into the record books after spending 78 days alone, battling sandstorms and heat exhaustion.
During his journey he tackled the high Altai Mountains, the Gobi Desert and the Mongolian Steppe.
Ash has already gained recognition from world-renowned explorer Sir Ranulph Fiennes.
