Along the tea-horse-road, on Shaxi’s marketplace. In the same square, in the Qing-era theatre, traditional performances every day. In Lijiang fresh yak milk and yak milk ice cream, in Dali pu erh tea compressed in bricks, in Nuodeng salt crystals from the local salt mines, in Baoshan antiquarian tables on the street, catering to the eye.
Along the tea-horse-road, as the south-western section of the Silk Road is called, the most different goods have traveled for thousands of years, from Yunnan and Sichuan up to Tibet and down, through Burma and Vietnam as far as India. The roads meandering in the plateau below the Himalayas, in the valleys of some of the world’s largest rivers, lead through the lands of dozens of ethnic groups and cultures, the string of towns of thousands of years, where you feel time being stopped.
We will travel along these roads and visit these towns in this November with the travelers of río Wang. We present our travel plans in detail, with maps and photos, in our usual blog encounter point, the special room of Selfie Bar, Budapest, Rákóczi út 29, on 27 April, Thursday, at 6 p.m. Everyone is welcome.
