And finally the Terracotta army


The sight is located one hour's drive north of Xi'an. It was discovered in 1974 by a farmer und was unearthed completely in 1980.



The "work" on the army began at around 250 BC on command of emperor Qin Shuangdi. It took 36 years and up to 70000 soldiers to finish the work.



Qin Shuangdi was one of the most prominent emperors in Chinese history. He was responsible for the Great Wall's construction as well as of paved roads and channels covering long distances.

Shigatse, the 2nd largest city in Tibet (pop: 80,000)




The Qinghai Lhasa railway is currently being extended to Shigatse


The city is located on 3800m above sea level in the comparably fertile and broad TsangPo river valley.

Shigatse contains the huge Tashilhunpo Monastery, founded in 1447 by Gendun Drup, the First Dalai Lama.
