The "China Silk Road" tour starts from Beijing and ends in Kashgar. It is an adventure trip that takes 17 days taking you through Beijing, Dunhuang, Lanzhou and 5 other destinations in China. "China Silk Road" is a guided small group tour that includes accommodation, transport, meals and others.

Trace the Silk Road through China. The Silk Road conjures images of caravans carrying incredible wealth across the deserts and mountains - images of colourful bazaars, priceless jewels and richly woven carpets and fabrics; exotic perfumes and spices. This remarkable journey takes you along the Chinese part of this ancient route. In Beijing we visit the Great Wall; Xian we view the Terracotta Warriors while the enormous Buddhist monastery at Xiahe will surely impress. In Dunhuang we appreciate the magnificent Buddhist grottos before skirting the Gobi Desert to the oasis town of Turpan and continuing on to the the frenetic market town of Kashgar.

“Crossing the Gobi Desert and visiting the 'lost' cities of the old Silk Road was really special. Over 2000 years of cultural heritage in two weeks. Fantastic.”

“This was an amazing tour to a fascinating region of China, which satisfied my interest in the history of the Silk Road. It was a non-stop tour involving many different modes of transport to cover the large distances but it was all very well organised by our young guide Tar. The regions and towns we visited differed both geographically and also in terms of ethnic diversity. I particularly enjoyed Xian, the wonderful history museums, the Mingsha dunes, the Mogao Caves filled with Buddhist art, the ruins of ancient Jiaohe and our final stop, Kashgar. The hotels exceeded my expectations: rooms were generally large and comfortable, with aircon and free wi-fi. In all, a memorable and very enjoyable tour!”
