The Ancient Tea Route was a network of mule caravan paths winding through the mountains of Yunnan Province in Southwest China. From around a thousand years ago, the Ancient Tea Route was a trade link from Yunnan, one of the first tea-producing regions: to India via Burma; to Tibet; and to central China via Sichuan Province. The route earned the name Tea-Horse Road because of the common trade of Tibetan ponies for Chinese tea.
This trip covers the 'must-sees' in Yunnan and Tibet and some of the more accessible sections of the ancient route. You will learn about distinctive cultures and religions on this trip. Rich with virgin forests and crystal blue lakes, this route offers spectacular scenery as well as an opportunity to come in contact with the primary village cultures of Yunnan and Tibet.
