Six years later and the Great Khan's tomb still remains undiscovered. One intrepid explorer/adventurer, Alan Nichols, thinks the tomb now lies in what is historical Mongolia.

We have all sorts of things, both from military and from mineral research. They’re going to find it, and they’re going to find it soon. And if it’s not found by someone who wants to take it to the next step – which is to find the right institutions and way to protect those remains – it’ll be another Disneyland.

The dunes are steep and the sand gives way under the camels’ feet, causing them to slide and stumble; the fact that they’re tied together on a short rope doesn’t help.
