    Chinese Yurt Camping in Western China, a RARE look! You won’t believe how beautiful this tiny house yurt was and how delicious the food was. This was near the Pakistan border, a 6-hour drive from Kashgar. We made our way deep to the border of China’s Xinjiang province in search of local cuisine, and found a Kyrgyz style Yurt and meal!
    As we made our way deeper into the Silk Road, we tried a lot of different street foods. But we didn't have a lot of home cooked meals. And one of the things I love doing is getting out of the restaurant or the street and trying some home cooked food. Luckily, we found a guide who brought us to a beautiful yurt tiny house on the karakul lake, right on the silk road Karakoram highway to Pakistan. I haven't been in a Mongolian Yurt yet, but I imagine it's quite similar to this Kyrgyz style one.
    As we travel around the world and sample street food around the world, we are beginning with this Silk Road series, there is a lot of new destinations we are going to travel to! This summer we will be going on a Vietnam street food journey, then to Indonesia for Indonesian street food, and then to Sri Lanka for Sri Lankan street food! So make sure to hit that subscribe button to subscribe to The Food Ranger youtube channel. Thanks so much!
    My name is Trevor James and I'm a hungry traveler and Mandarin learner that's currently living in Chengdu, Szechuan, China, eating up as much delicious .
    I enjoy tasting and documenting as many dishes as I can and I'm going to make videos for YOU along the way! Over the next few years, I'm going to travel around the world and document as much food as I can for you! I love delicious food! This channel will show you real Chinese food and real local food, not that stuff they serve in the Buzzfeed challenge.
    Thanks for watching, and please feel free to leave a comment, suggestion, or critique in the comments below!
    Please make sure to subscribe, it's the best way to keep my videos in your feed, and give me a thumbs up too if you liked this food video, thanks, I appreciate it! You could also share the video too if you liked it, that would be awesome.

    Hi Trevor. Come to Kyrgyzstan to try real Kyrgyz meals (horse meat, yak meat, wild lamb, and many different dishes). The meals you tried on the video is not known in Kyrgyzstan. The kyrgyz people living in China are culturalised to chinese style and eat different food than what we eat in Kyrgyzstan I guess
