One World Trekking to offer new on the Lost Trade and Pilgrimage Route in Yunnan

In 2013, One World Trekking is offering an original journey, designed to take in a fading and long forgotten trade and pilgrimage route through the Yunnan's daunting and spectacular northwest.
Dec. 5, 2012 - PRLog -- From June 3 to 21, 2013, One World Trekking will offer a brand new trekking journey which remains a mystery even today. Penetrating deep into Yunnan and Tibet's history and deeper still into the magnificent geography, the One World group will take a northwesterly path once used as a remote feeder route to source goods in Gyalthang ( 'the royal plains' ) - as Shangri-La was once known and take them to Lhasa. This new trekking route links the remote villages along the Yangtze River watershed to the greater Tea Horse caravan route that spanned the Himalayas. The small group of 5 to 8 people will pass through the little known town of Ponzera, whose artisanal, sublimely painted bowls were as famous as its fearless muleteers, and known as far west as Sikkim and Ladakh. Moving on from the soft heat of Ponzera, the route climbs along one of the few remaining original pilgrim pathways up to the summit of the sacred Shula pass, a pass once referred to as the "Grand Gateway into Tibet". Traders once referred to the trade routes as 'routes through the sky' in reference to the geographies that the pathways took in, so daunting they were.
