Edge member Chloe Burles is currently walking 1600 kilometres across the Gobi desert and if successful will become the youngest Briton to walk the length of the Gobi.
Chloe set off from Bulgan in the west of Mongolia earlier this month and estimates the expedition to Sainshand in the East should take up to 60 days. On her website, Chloe talks about how fascinated she is by the ability of life to survive in some of the most hostile locations around the world, which was an interest sparked when she developed altitude sickness whilst completing an expedition to the summit of mount Kilimanjaro.
The most important factor during Chloe’s challenge will be finding and accessing clean water which is a problem faced by a vast number of people in their daily lives. As such she will be raising money for WaterAid on her expedition, who help to to transform millions of lives every year by improving access to safe water, sanitation and hygiene.
