Description

From early on, the silk roads functioned as a link between the East and the West on which both material goods and knowledge were exchanged. The cultural impact of the old trade routes was immense. Many of the ancient caravans which followed the silk roads either started or ended in the heart of the middle Kingdom - and so does our journey. From Xi'an, home of the terracotta warriors, we travel by train to to the legendary Oasis of Dunhuang. There we hop on our bicycles and follow the Northern Silk Roads leading us westwards along the edge of Taklamakan desert. Our two weeks of cycling through the beautiful roughness of steppe, stone- and sand- desert and oases ends in the multicultural city of Turpan. A visit to Beijing, Chinas political and cultural capital will round up our journey.
