Three disc DVD set about China's legendary Tea Road. It crosses the roof of the world, winding more than 4,000 tortuous kilometers across 20 mountain chains and two desert plateaux. It spans four great rivers, and cuts through the territory of 26 different ethnic groups.
This is the ancient Tea Route, which opens Southwest China onto Tibet ­ and thereby Nepal, India, Persia, Mongolia and Russia, and then Europe.
 
The legendary Tea Route, crossed by Marco Polo during his travels, but used by innumerable horse trains for countless centuries before him. Their tracks are beaten deep into the rocks. This series of High Definition films follows in the hoofprints of those caravans which hauled their baggage of tea across the Tibetan Plateau and the Himalayas to be sold in the markets of South West Asia and dispersed to the entire world.
