Mateusz Waligora

In August 2018 polish adventurer Mateusz Waligora set off from Bulgan in Khovd Province to cross the Mongolian Gobi Desert alone. 

Gobi is the largest desert in Asia stretching from south of Mongolia to northern China and the fifth largest desert in the world. Mateusz planned to cross only the desert covering Mongolia.

To reach the Mongolian part of the desert, Mateusz hiked through the Altai mountains, pulling a hand-cart, in which he transported all the equipment, water and food he needed for the entire trip. Water as well, because he could go for several days without finding water on the route. With additional water, the cart could reach a load of 200 kg, which he had to pull behind him. In the desert, night temperatures dropped below -10 degrees Celsius and could reach 35 degrees Celsius during the day.

 After 58 days and 1785 km covered on foot, Mateusz Waligora reached his destination in Sainshand. 

During his trip, Mateusz has chosen LYOFOOD meals to get him through the long days in the desert.
