Travel map of west China published by National Geographic.
The most populous country in the world and one of the cradles of civilization, China is a leading destination for global travelers.
The map delivers extensive detail of the country, north and west of Changsha, Hunan Province. These central and western parts of China are some of the less populated, yet still very diverse. They include China's three largest regions, Xinjiang, Tibet and Inner Mongolia; megacities Chongqing and Chengdu; and many natural and man-made wonders like the Himalayan Mountains, Jiuzhaigou Valley, the Terracotta Army and sections of the Great Wall.
Find your destination with the user-friendly index of cities and towns or look for pinpointed natural, cultural or historical areas of interest like national parks and preserves, Buddhist Temples, mosques, caves, spas, hot springs, waterfalls, botanical gardens and UNESCO World Heritage sites. Navigate the country using the mapped road network, showing motorways, major and secondary roads complete with distance markers. Get to hidden gems with other transportation aids like airports, harbors, railroads, trails and tracks. The map is the perfect complement to National Geographic's China Traveler's Guide or any other guidebook to the area.
