The Story Behind This Trip:

In 2010, during a trip on the Silk Road, we bumped into a hardcore traveler who had been exploring China for 2 years straight. He told us stories about an incredible place few travelers have ever seen - the Rainbow Mountains. In fact, he was so inspired by them that this traveler went back for a second visit after we parted. It took a few months of research, scouting, and planning, but we finally got an itinerary together to make it possible for you to visit this extraordinary place.
