Accompany Lonely Planet travel writer Bradley Mayhew. Written and directed by Rolf Lambert and Bernd Girrbach.
In part 3 Bradley Mayhew continues his exciting trip in the footsteps of Marco Polo. In Afghanistan he finds that Marco Polo’s report of a journey “through lands harassed by bandits and ravaged by armies” is as sadly accurate today as it was in the 13th century. In the mountains of northern Afghanistan Bradley meets lapis lazuli miners, in the Pamirs of Tajikistan he shares a yurt with yak herders. Finally crossing into China he heads for the vibrant oasis trading towns of Kashgar and Khotan.
