Glimpses of the Silk Road

Xi'an, Dunhuang and Turpan

For 2,000 years, the Silk Road was the principal artery for caravans traveling between China and Europe laden with textiles, spices, gold—and ideas, philosophies, and religions. On this adventure, designed to pair up with our Great Game trip immediately following it, we visit some of the noted historical sites of this legendary route: Xi’an, home of the celebrated Terra Cotta Warriors; Dunhuang, where we explore the cliff-bound Mogao Grottoes, a priceless repository of Chinese Buddhist cave art long lost in the desert; Turpan, close to the ancient city of Gaocheng and the Bezeklik Caves, with their strikingly painted mural art; and the celebrated Kashgar Sunday market.
