This winter, follow in the footsteps of history as you journey along the ancient Silk Road from Beijing to Dunhuang, taking in different sections of the Great Wall along the way.

Your epic ten-day journey starts in Beijing, where you’ll have ample opportunity to see the sights. After Beijing you will travel to Xi’an, home to the world famous Terracotta Warriors. However, it’s not all about ticking off the sights – in Xi’an you’ll have plenty of chances to experience local culture, biking along the city walls and sampling traditional street snacks in the Muslim Quarter.

From Xi’an you head onwards to Zhangye in Gansu province to see the fascinating Danxia landforms, often called the “rainbow mountains” for the fantastic colors of the local sandstone.

Your journey through Gansu continues in Jiayuguan and Dunhuang, where you will visit wonders both natural and manmade, including Crescent Lake Oasis, the most intact surviving military building on the Great Wall, and the UNESCO World Heritage listed Mogao Caves.
