Silk Road 1997

China 1997
Pakistan 1997

During September 1997, I joined Maxwell Holland and 17 intrepid travelers and crossed China on the Silk Road from Beijing, Xian, Lanzhou, Xiahe, Dunhuang, Turpan, Urumqi and Kashgar.  From Kashgar we headed south across the Karakoram Mountains into Pakistan.
