Around The World - Silk Road: X'Ian To Kashgar

Season 12, Episode 6 of 30

In China, Megan McCormick follows the legendary trade route along which caravans of treasures once found their way into Europe. Starting at the silk capital of Xi'an, she passes Jiayugan and the Jade Gate, once frontier towns on the edge to the uncivilized western world. Passing through the Flaming Mountains, she stops to sample the wines and grapes of Turpan, one of the lowest and hottest places on earth. After visiting a 1,000 Buddha cave in Kuqa, she ends her journey at the famous Kashgar Market where wares from east and west are still traded today.
