The Great Game was played out between Great Britain and Russia in the late nineteenth century, centred on the old Silk Road oasis of Kashgar. This exciting research trip combines the spectacular landscapes of the eastern Pamir and Tien Shan, continuing north through the deserts to the well-watered reached of the Chinese Altai and the seldom seen but amazing geopark of Kekotouhai or China's Yosemite.
