This is a photo set from a six-day trip that was supposed to go through the Bayinbuluke Grasslands.
Due to an unexpected 'local situation' we had a quite significant change of plans. Instead of visiting the Bayinbuluke Grasslands and returning to Urumqi, we ended up on a super road trip that took us all the way to Kashgar!
It was still a fun trip—instead hiking in the grasslands we followed the Silk Road, passing through old towns on the way through the mountains and deserts of Xinjiang Province.
Several of the participants sent in their favourite photos of the sights and scenery—see below!
