Stein Camels at Keriya.jpg

Stein used a variety of animals to carry his supplies and his findings, as well as for riding.  Depending on the landscape facing them ahead, the expedition bought and sold or hired camels, horses, donkeys and yaks.  Stein would send messengers ahead of him as needed to make arrangements with local merchants for a new group of animals suitable to the changing physical challenges.
