In July 2011, Colonel John Blashford-Snell led a 16 day expedition to the remote southern Gobi Desert in Mongolia.
This involved several days travel on Bactrian camels as well as a visit to the historical Ongi Monastery, the remains of the ancient city of Karakorum. The team also saw the wild Przewalski horses that have been re-introduced to Mongolia.
The successful trip to the Southern Gobi included drilling a well to give clean water at the site of a future community centre for up to 3000 nomads.
Colonel John and his team enjoyed their traditional Burns Supper on this expedition with supplies of Stahly Quality Foods’ tinned haggis. Photographs of the celebration can be seen here. Read more about the July 2011 expedition to the Gobi Desert in Mongolia with Colonel John Blashford-Snell.
We can confidently boast that Stahly’s canned haggis has seen all five continents and is extremely popular around the globe. As it travels well and does not need refrigeration, it is always the first choice for The Scientific Exploration Society.
