The SilkRoad is a historical trade route connecting the East with the West. The section that runs through Northwest China’s #Gansu province accounts for one-fourth of the entire road in terms of length. Thus Gansu is called the “golden” part of the Silk Road.
There are numerous historical relics and varied landforms there. The long winding camel caravans, the never ceasing Crescent Spring (a crescent-shaped lake surrounded by desert in Dunhuang city) and the splendid Yadan landform are all breathtaking sights.
It’s a place that encourages people to strike up a dialogue with history.
