Land Rover Journey of Discovery Reaches Western China

Stop Highlights Partnership with Chinese Historical Organization

Apr 18, 2012
We've covered Land Rover's Journey of Discovery from its start in Birmingham, England, to winter driving in Austria. Now, the trek has taken the team to western China, where it has met with the China Exploration & Research Society, one of Land Rover's humanitarian and conservation partners.

The expedition team met with CERS founder and explorer Wong How Man in the ancient, historic city of Dunhuang, famous for its Mogao caves, known for being one of the world's top sites of Buddhist artwork. Dunhuang is located on the route of the ancient Silk Road, the main corridor for trade an interaction between China and the western world.
CERS maintains a fleet of Land Rovers comprised of Discoveries and Defenders to help researchers reach some of the remote sites that they study, including Asiatic Beaver research and the Tibetan Antelope project.

To commemorate the eight-year partnership between Land Rover and CERS, Wong was presented with a scaled reproduction of an art piece created by Ian Cook shown at the 'Land Rover in Action Exhibition' at the Royal Geographic Society last year.
Wong has written many articles about sites along and around the Silk Road, and has published a book about the history of Islam in China, released in 2011.
