/ Gobi Desert 1000 Mile Journey Expedition on Foot
If you have a couple of months spare and also a chunk of cash or can raise it and fancy something challenging ( double speak for painful, uncomfortable and a bit dangerous) we are looking for 8-12 inspired ( double speak for daft) enough individuals to attempt to cross the Gobi Desert and Mongolia on foot starting in May 2014.
It is a distance of 1136 miles and we aim to do in 50 days It gets a wee bit hot and the winds can introduce you to flying, the camels are all awkward without exception. A lot of locals are all seriously drunk on cheap Russian vodka and want to fight anyone who is over 6ft but we do not meet many due to extreme isolation. The maps are out of date Russian military ones and the wells are often bone dry.
Those taking part will be required to attend a weekend to a week team get together at out luxury mountain Finca in Spain. This is included in price ( except flights) we do this in order to ensure everyone gets on, is fit enough, and also to cover first aid training.
Now I have covered the off the good bits anyone wants to know the downsides just ask. Contact us at http://www.1000milejourneys.com/mongolia-the-gobi-desert/
