Synopsis

Yunnan Province, in southwest China, is the starting point of the ancient Tea Trade Road going to Tibet. It was also known as the southern Silk Road and carries a 2,000 years history.

Today, caravans keep travelling this route to trade tea and, most importantly, salt which has been a major currency throughout time.

These caravans and the region they pass through are still barely known.
