Lanzhou Tours and Travels
Located on the banks of the mighty 5,487km-long Yellow River (the second longest in China after the Yangtze), Lanzhou is capital of Gansu Province, a harsh and rugged region. Gansu connects the Chinese heartland with the vast desert regions of the northwest. Indeed, the Hexi Corridor, running some 1200km between two mountain ranges and dotted with oases, formed a link between China and the far West. Lanzhou was a former staging post on the legendary Silk Road at the beginning of the Hexi Corridor, which linked ancient Xi’an with Central Asia and the Roman Empire. The Silk Road spawned hundreds, then thousands of diverging tracks that enabled traders to transport Chinese goods to Persia, Arabia and Europe and return with treasures from these faraway lands. To protect Lanzhou, the Great Wall was extended as far as Yumen.Read More
