I'm on the way from the second to the first most populous country in the world. I'm very excited. I'm leaving the inland part of India, but remain in its waters, to the far south. Then I visit Sri Lanka and enter the huge Bay of Bengal, the road leads me to Sumatra, Malaysia and further to the coast of Vietnam. And I come to China. I disembark very quickly and for the first time in this Tiki adventure I start a journey that takes me deep into the mainland. Two thousand kilometers away from the sea. For every old salt and without false modesty I can call me so, this journey is not easy. I leave the sea and the raft. It's not easy to me, but I am not doing all of that without a reason. I'll see something one must see. A miracle of nature, in the full sense of the word.
Since traveling by train or some other land transport would last too long, I decide for the first time and only time in the Tiki adventure, to take a plane. I do not like it, as I’m betraying a principle which I have established - to tour the world on a raft. However, in order to achieve the objective it is necessary to change the basic plan. In India, I traveled by train and in China, well, by plane. According to me, I quickly reach my destination, the north of central China, the province of Gansu and more precisely in the city of Zhangye. Southeast of the city there is a mountain called Qilian. At only 40 kilometers from the city the “Zhangye Danxia National Geological Park” is located, the place because of which I went so far from the sea.
