National Geographic Expeditions: China Photo Adventure
Dates: Monday, April 7 – Thursday, April 17, 2014
Location: The Tea Horse Road and Shangri-La
Soaring, ice-glazed mountains that slide into deep river gorges, high alpine villages where ethnic Tibetans live as they have for centuries, and mountain monasteries filled with red-robed monks: these are what make China’s Yunnan province a thrilling place for a photographer to explore. Set off along the ancient Tea Horse trade route, hiking to remote villages and sacred mountains on the way to Shangri-La. Photograph stupas against a backdrop of pointed peaks and colorfully dressed farmers at work in their terraced fields. Get to know the local people and document their timeless way of life as we make our way toward the Tibetan plateau. For more information, visit National Geographic Expeditions.
