As the limitless desert landscape of the Tarim Basin Silk Road tour
in Western China stretches, a wide array of geographical boundaries and differing terrains come together to form a crossroad between the East and the West. The crossroad was soon renamed The Silk Road by German geographer and explorer, Ferdinand Freiherr von Richthofen. The Silk Road was renowned for its lavish trade and human interaction and migration, between China, India, Rome, Persia, Arabia and Greek subjects, as the flux of nomads, missionaries, merchants and missionaries began to influence China’s development. Recent excavations of the area have found a number of well-preserved Caucasian looking mummies, which are substantially taller than the average population of the time.
It is estimated that these mummies date back 3,800 years, suggesting human interaction and migration on the route between East and West was well traveled. The mystery and enigmatic atmosphere which surrounds the origins of the ancient explorers, has captured the imagination of travelers from around the world, and has incited many to trip to China
to trek the ancient road.
Several of these ancient people of unknown descent were laid to rest adorned with western influenced customs, textiles and articles. This suggests that a diverse exchange and amalgamation of technology, religion, races, language, arts and customs was flourishing for some time. China travel offers a number of travel opportunities to explore the mysteries of Central Asia and the Silk Road, which include the differing journeys made by ancient travelers along the various routes such as the Southern Silk Road, the Northern Silk Road and the Silk Road tour from the Sea.
