TURFAN AND LOCATIONS ALONG THE T'IEN SHAN

 
   
{short description of image} This link is to the index of map sheets that accompanied Serindia. Stein visited locations along the northern rim of the Takla Makan and foothills of the T'ien Shan during both his second and third expeditions. They are shown on maps 14 - 19 - 23 - 24 - 34 - 39 - 42 - 45 - 44 - 48 - 49 - 51 - 52 - 4 - 55 - 58 - 59 - 62 - 63 - 66 - 69 - 72 - 73 - 76 -77- 80. Here I have listed some of the various locations that Stein found interesting enough to sketch or photograph and discuss in Innermostasia or Serindia.
