Like Muztagh Ata expedition,we are so confident for this expedition Taklamagan-world second largest desert . Trekking 7 days in the center , no human being area,exploring remote present day villages and past deserted ruins on the Silk Road, you get so closed to Seven Herdins ,and Sir Aire Stein’s expeditions hundreds years ago……
The best time is on March, beganing of April, the end od Sept, Oct. and Nov.
