China

This gallery contains photos of my two trips to China. The first one was to Beijing and surroundings. The second one was more adventurous as I (and friend) did a trek from Xian to Yichang by train, and from here over the Yangtze river to Chongqing, visiting many interesting cities along the river.

Itinerary of Yangtze trip:
Beijing > plane > Xian and surroundings (Mt Hua Shan, Terracotta Warriors, Huanqing pool, Qin Shi Huang's tomb, Banpo museum) > train > Yichang > Yangtze ferry > Three Gorges Village > Xiling Gorge > Gezouba Dam > Three Gorges Dam > Qutang Gorge > Wu Gorge > Shennong Pass > Wushan > White Emperor City > Fengjie > Tujia > Shibaozhai > Fengdu > Ghost City > Chongqing > plane > Beijing.

Please feel free to leave your comments! Thanks :) I have added "new" photos (taken in 2004). New additions are at the bottom of the gallery.
