The trip Kyrgyzstan & The Chinese Silk Route starts in Beijing and ends in Chuy Province. This is a trekking trip that takes 43 days taking you through Beijing, Zhangye, Liujiaxia, Dunhuang and 17 other destinations in Kyrgyzstan and China. This is a guided group trip that includes accommodation, transport and others.

The western end of the Silk Route, is arguably the most historic. This was the end that

started it all, when the Han Chinese emperor Wudi commissioned Zhang Qian to open up

trade to Central Asia and to map the route.



The link between the Central Asian country of Kyrgyzstan and China is the remote Torugart

Pass, and our route takes us through this high Tian Shan mountain pass to the fabled city of

Kashgar with its unique Sunday Market.



Then there is the vast Taklimakan Desert, the western end of the Gobi and some stunning

scenery complete with oasis towns of major historic importance to the Silk Road. The route

then climbs onto the lower slopes of the wild Tibetan Plateau through to the holy Tibetan

town of Xiahe. It’s not until we reach Xi’an that we really hit China’s tourist trail and that is

where the trip ends; it’s a perfect example of the importance of the journey and not the

destination.
