Located in China’s northwest, Xinjiang is a majestic land of ancient mosques and deserts that stretch into the horizon. This journey begins in Kashgar and ventures toward the Pakistani border. Trips to Karakul Lake, the Taklamakan desert, and the incredible flaming mountains of China’s classic novel, “Journey to the West,” will provide unforgettable photographic opportunities. Xinjiang feels preserved in time and is more similar central Asian countries than central China. Trip highlights include: desert camping, masque visits, camel rides, daily one-to-one photo critiques with Gallagher, and an extraordinary journey to the underground wells of the Karez Water System.
“This is truly a bucket-list trip for those interested in photography,” said WildChina founder Mei Zhang. “Travelers will have an opportunity to take a part of The Silk Road home with them as they explore the geography and cultural heritage of this region through the lens.”
