The river traffic was one-way only, however, as the fast current made sailing up the Huanghe impractical. To travel from Baotou back to Lanzhou or Yinchuan, one would use a cart and camel road. There were also caravan roads from Baotou to Ordos and the Alxa League. Owen Lattimore, ''The Desert to Turkestan'', 1928. Pages 7-8

Taghaza

to Oualata to visit the Mali Empire. According to Ibn Battuta, there were no trees, only sand and the salt mines. Nobody lived in the village other than the Musafa slaves who dug for the salt and lived on dates imported from Sijilmasa and the Dar'a valley (Draa River), camel meat and millet imported from the Sudan (Sudan (region)). The buildings were constructed from slabs of salt and roofed

with camel skins. The salt was dug from the ground and cut into thick slabs, two of which were loaded onto each camel. The salt was taken south across the desert to Oualata and sold. The value of the salt was chiefly determined by the transport costs. Ibn Battuta mentions that the value increased fourfold when transported between Oualata and the Malian capital. . The location of the Malian capital is uncertain. In spite

Hohhot

Kong Camel trains have also long been used in portions of trans-Asian trade, including the Silk Road. As late as the early twentieth century, camel caravans played an important role connecting the Beijing Shanxi region of eastern China with Mongolian centers (Urga (Ulan Bator), Uliastai, Kobdo) and Xinjiang. The routes went across Inner (Inner Mongolia) and or Outer (Mongolia) Mongolia. According to Owen Lattimore, who spent five months in 1926 crossing

the northern edge of China (from Hohhot to Gucheng (Qitai County), via Inner Mongolia) with a camel caravan, demand for caravan trade was only increased by the arrival of foreign steamships into Chinese ports and the construction of the first railways in eastern China, as they improved access to the world market for such products of western China as wool.
