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.
