Trail consulting in the Chinese Alps!

Trail consulting in the Chinese Alps!

In August 2015, we were invited by the China Volkssport Association, as trail consultants, in the region of Kanas, Xinjiang, China. Our visit lasted 8 days. During this time, we hiked trails, we rode on horses, we discovered remote areas and we came in contact with the local Mongolian, Kazak and Chinese people. Our study resulted in re-organising the initially planned trails network, focusing this time in including trails that are more natural and that pass through more sights. We also presented the guidelines for infrastructures such as huts, rest areas and of course way-marking. Special attention was given to way-marking, as we shortly trained our Chinese counterparts on the design and implementation of way-marks and signposts. We also provided guidelines for the national and international promotion of the trails, and we believe that very soon, the trails network of Kanas Region will be open to the public to enjoy one of the prettiest areas of China!
