For thousands of years, the beauty of the Three Gorges has been a source of inspiration for countless poets and painters. This cycle tour is designed for more experienced cyclists who enjoy climbing. The route will lead you from the ancient metropolis Xi’an and its world famous terracotta warriors to the Yangzi, crossing the Qinling mountain range which divides northern from southern China.
We cycle off the beaten tracks of mass tourism and discover the rough beauty of provincial China as well as the fascinating waterway culture along the country’s longest river. The cycling tour will be framed by a three-day stay in the capital Beijing at the beginning and a visit to Shanghai, China’s “secret capital” at the end.
