China's Ancient Tea Horse Road

This book can be downloaded and read in iBooks on your Mac or iOS device.

Description

The antique Silk Road that connected the Chinese and Mediterranean Worlds for more than a millennium, facilitating the exchange of both goods and cultures, is widely known and celebrated.

Less familiar is its more southerly equivalent, the ‘Ancient Tea-Horse Road’ that once linked the lush tea gardens of southwest China with the frigid wastelands of Tibet and – beyond – the torrid plains of northern India. The latter is also sometimes called the ‘Southern Silk Road’, though this is a misnomer, as silk seems never to have played a very important part in the traffic that traveled along it.

Follow the jingling mule trains carrying tea across the centuries from China to Tibet.
