Welcome to the complete Xinjiang adventure – hiking glaciers, biking mountains, exploring ancient Silk Road caves and experiencing numerous Central Asian cultures. Challenge yourself to go beyond the simple tourist sites and off the paved road, into a part of western China that few people ever get to experience.
This tour starts in the Xinjiang capital of Urumqi and slowly cuts across the Tianshan to southern Xinjiang where deserts, donkeys and Silk Road ruins await. After exploring Tashkorgan, the most western town in all of China, we finally finish our journey in Kashgar, an oasis town full of culture and history.
