In aid of NSPCC – Trek across the Gobi Desert in Mongolia
Western edge to its far Eastern corner
Estimated passage: TBC
The Gobi Desert – a rain shadow desert formed by the Himalaya’s, covering
over 500,000 square miles, is one of the world’s greatest deserts. Its name,
taken from the Mongolian word meaning waterless place, covers much of the southern part of Mongolia. The climate is extreme to say the least.
Using human power to drag supplies in custom built trailers, our team of 2 guys and 1 girl, will be pushing the limits of human endurance and resilience to cover over 1400 miles, traversing sand dunes, large barren expanses and rocky outcrops. The route will see the team navigate their way across the desert from well to well, setting a new worlds first record.
