Trip Report Xinjiang, China! It's More Than the Silk Road!

Jump to last reply

Traveling the Silk Road is fascinating, and this is why some intrepid travelers make to China's Xinjiang Province. But very few travelers venture too far off the ancient road in search of what Xinjiang can offer. We spent a couple weeks in Xinjiang very recently (like last week!) exploring the wild side of the vast region. After being completely lost in the Lop Nur Desert for nearly three days, and wilderness camping in some of the most spectacular places on Earth, we came back with a deeper appreciation of wild China. Of course we explored the Silk Road a bit, but we loved seeing Xinjiang's wildlife and wild places so much more. What a special place on this earth. Take a look at our most recent China adventure travel series in the link below. I think you will enjoy it! (It's long but it's a nice photo-essay)

Cheers,

Coke, Som and Cokie
