Walking Home From Mongolia
from 7th Nov 2011 to 23rd Apr 2012
Rob Lilwall and Leon McCarron have embarked on an epic 5,000 km winter expedition through the heart of China.
Carrying all of their gear, they will start amidst the wastelands of Outer Mongolia from where they will head south by foot through the Gobi Desert. Crossing into China, they will follow the Great Wall down to the turbulent waters of the Yellow River, where they will inflate the kayaks in order to paddle downstream to the legendary city of Xi An. Leaving the water, they will then hike onwards through the snow-capped mountains of central China, until finally they reach their finishing point at the glittering skyscrapers of Hong Kong.
The expedition will also act as a sequel to Rob Lilwall’s acclaimed and televised three-year Cycling Home From Siberia expedition.Posted on Jan 22, 2012 by Leon McCarron
