New $7000 uncharted expedition offers no WiFi, cold showers… and no itinerary?

A new expedition is promising the trip of the life time to destinations so remote they're not even on Google maps, but there's a big catch.

Intrepid Travel's Uncharted Expedition will take travellers on a 3500km trip into the unknown with no idea where they're going.

Aside from knowing the start point of Astana, Kazakhstan and end point of Ulaanbaatar, Mongolia travellers won't be told much else and will spend 22 days going along for the ride.

"You won't know where you're going, what you'll see, where you'll stay or what you'll be eating," said Intrepid Travel co-founder Darrell Wade

"There'll be long travel days, intermittent electricity and WiFi, a few cold showers, and a few treats along the way though, including fermented mare milk.

"But it's going to be a real adventure. One day you could be hiking through the world's most remote and breath-taking landscapes; the next, soothing your aching muscles in a sauna in the middle of nowhere."

The expedition will be leaving on June 30, 2019 and will cost NZ$7005 per person. Spaces are extremely limited and only 10 people will be going on the trip.
