China Silk Road

China’s Silk Road is an ancient trade route that linked China with the empires of the west. A mere mention of the name evokes images of camel caravans carrying spools of silk through shifting sands and high mountain passes. Retrace the footsteps of the ancient traders and discover the myriad of secrets that await you on your journey across the dusty plains and arid deserts of the Silk Road.

China Silk Road

At over 2,000 years old, the Silk Road is rich in history and carves its way through some of China’s most spectacular landscapes. Journey across the Gansu corridor visiting the Thousand Buddha caves of the Mogao Grottoes and the Rainbow Mountains of the Zhangye Danxia Geopark. Discover the ‘mouth of china’ at the Jiayuguan Fort, where the Great Wall crosses the Gobi desert, take camel rides to ‘the singing sand mountain’ of Mingsha Shan and sleep under canvas at Badain Jaran. Follow in the steps of Tibetan nomads and ride horses through the Songke Grassland as you discover the ancient legends of the Silk Road.
