Route map, Silk Road & Tibet Tour


" In the same year Wolfe defeated Montcalm on the Plains of Abraham in Quebec City (1759), the Emperor Qianlong succeeded in achieving mastery over not only the Dzungaria and Tarim basins (effectively all of Xinjiang) but also Tibet, modern-day Mongolia and Taiwan. To protect Manchuria, Qianlong had to suppress Mongols. To keep eastern Mongols quiet, he had to beat Western Mongols, which meant taking Dzungaria and Tarim. To protect them, Tibet had to be subdued. There was no material incentive behind the campaign.
