Follow in the footsteps of Marco Polo as you journey along the Silk Road. Your journey begins in Kashgar and heads east to Shanghai. Highlights include Dunhuang’s Mogao Grottoes, famous for its Buddhist sculptures housed in 492 caves.

Begin your travels in the border town of Kashgar, where you will visit the Id Kah Mosque, the largest mosque in the Xinjiang Province. Additional highlights include the Afaq Khoja Mausoleum, one of the best examples of Islamic architecture in China, and Kashgar’s Grand Bazaar.

Then, fly to Urumqi, the capital of the Xinjiang Province. Highlights include the desert oasis Turpan, known for its grapes and its ancient underground irrigation system, and Tianchi, or the “Heavenly Lake.” Other attractions include the ancient ruins of Gaocheng and the Flaming Mountains, both known for their link to the Chinese classic Journey to the West.

The main attraction of this tour is the desert city of Dunhuang. A major stop along the Silk Road, Dunhuang is home to the Mogao Grottoes. Carved from the 4th century to the 11th century CE, the grottoes house over 2400 Buddhist sculptures in 492 caves. Long forgotten until 1907, this site is now the city’s main attraction.

Additional highlights include Jiayu Pass (the western end of the Great Wall), Bingling Temple, Qinghai Lake, and Kumbum Monastery.
