Photo of the Week: Gobi region, Mongolia – July 2013

Topping up. Wells were located on our old Soviet maps with details on recharge rate L/Hr. However only about 1 in 5 were still operational.

A great moment in the desert a long way from civilisation. A clean water well with water actually in it. We became fairly reliant on water wells during our 2 week traverse of the Gobi Desert region in the south of Mongolia. Even though it wasn’t that hot we were still using water for drinking, cooked, washing etc. Most of the time we got by with the 50L water tank but when we needed a shower we filled the 20L jerry can also. These wells literally made the trip.
