Dunhuang we bush camped in the desert new the south pass which marked the caravan route west and warned invaders during the Han Dynasty AD25. Then we skimmed the Gobi Desert and down to Xian and then onto hohot inner Mongolia and to one of the funniest night club ever. And finally into Beijing and quite a few beers.

Crossing our highest pass 5220m only just as there was a huge landslide we had to cross.Then we had the Rear suspension go on us so it took george and i 12hrs to sort out at 3900m. It was then onto Everest Base camp and everyone feeling pretty crap.
