Travelers of Central Asia

The two-humped camel is a large ungulate native to the steppes of Central Asia. He has two humps on his back.
Domesticated camels have served as beasts of burden in Inner Asia since ancient times, enabling caravan travel along the Silk Road due to their resistance to cold, drought and high altitude.
