Overview

This trip follows the starting part of the China Silk Road, which originated from Xian. Learn about the story of the great trading route in Xian and continue west to Gansu province, which has been serving as the vital corridor between China and Central Asia. See the Spectacular grottoes, monasteries and temples which marked the exchange of religion and culture between China and the west along the silk road.  

Apart from culture, the Silk Road is also famous for its magnificent landscapes. Be impressed by the breathe-taking Danxia landform in Zhangye. As an important military base in the past, this tour will also allow you time to visit Jiayuguan, the starting point of the Ming Dynasty Great Wall.  

For those who have time, you may wish to extend the trip to Xinjiang.
