I’m Zahariz, a Malaysian adventurer filmmaker currently travelling around the world mostly on a bicycle and making film about my journey.

I’m living the nomadic way of life, calling the road as my home and try to share my experiences and my thoughts through writings, photography and film. I want to spend my life not collecting material things but instead trying to collect as much experience as I can.

Kyrgyzstan is a beautiful small country in Central Asia where almost 90% of the land is mountainous. Recently I’ve been travelling through the Tien Shan (Celestial Mountains) in Kyrgyzstan during the winter season on skis and snowshoes. I walked about 400km and managed to capture the beauty of the landscape on my camera.
