Tours to Tajikistan and China with Christine-Ann Richards in 2017

Art & Adventure are two of the strands that Christine-Ann Richards has successfully used over the years in planning her travels in China and central Asia. Her first visit with other members of the Craft Potters Association in 1978 has led to an on-going affair with the culture, the country and the peoples of China. This interest in the art, archaeology and philosophy that make up the history of the area have led to many a detour ‘off the beaten track’, which in her travels she seeks to share with others.

THE SILK ROUTE IN CENTRAL ASIA - Tajikistan

7th – 21st June 2017

Dushanbe, Shahr-i-tuz, Khorog, High Pamirs, Wakhan Valley, Murgab, Osh, Uzgen & Bishkek

Visit Shahr-i-tuz, part of the elusive Graeco-Bactrian kingdom of Alexander the Great which over the centuries thrived in an intense, material, spiritual and artistic melange much influenced by Turkic and Buddhist Indian worlds. Follow the Pandzh River (upper Amu Darya) to Kalaikhum before joining the Pamir Highway to Khorog, which has the second highest botanical garden in the world and where we will spend a couple of nights visiting the gardens and museum before heading south to hot springs, ancient caravanserai, castles and petroglyphs in the Wakhan Valley. Turning northwards at Lyanger we rejoin the Pamir Highway to Alichur and have the opportunity to explore the lakes, mountain and the local flora and fauna as Spring unfolds.

Landprice:  £2,725 inclusive

Turkish Airlines Flights:   London via Istanbul to Dushanbe, Bishkek/Frunze via Istanbul to London: approx. £600

CHINA TOUR, Sichuan Province & the Tibetan Border

 11th – 25th October 2017

Chongqing, Anyue County, Chengdu, Qionglai & Yinjing with a pottery tradition dating back to the 8th century, Songpan & Jiuzhai Gou

In the Autumn we will be travelling to Chengdu the capital of Sichuan Province, which lies in the hugely fertile Red Basin, surrounded by chequer-board fields and well irrigated plains.  The wealth generated by this fertile land helped sponsor the temples on forested slopes and the mélange of Buddhist, Confucian and Daoist sculptures of the temples which we will visit.  In contrast, northern and western Sichuan are covered by the snow capped foothills of the Himalayan range, rising well over 5,000 metres, a thinly settled region whose culture is predominantly Tibetan.   While in the far north is the beautiful alpine scenery around Songpan and Jiuzhai Gou.

Landprice:  approx. £2,350 inclusive

Flight London to Chongqing return – Tianjin Airlines: approx. £400
