Jeff Fuchs has devoted much of the last decade to discovering Asia’s indigenous mountain cultures. He led the first western exploration of the Nomadic Salt Road in southern Qinghai province and authored ‘The Ancient Tea Horse Road’, becoming the first westerner to travel and document the extraordinary six thousand km tea trade route in its entirety – a journey that National Geographic Traveller Magazine listed among ‘50 Trips of a Lifetime’ edition.
