The trans-boundary trading Corridor of Chang’an-Tian-shan Silk Road, covering some 5,000 kilometers across China, Kazakhstan and Kyrgyzstan, was in active use from the 2nd century BC until the 16th century AD. The corridor was inscribed on the List, along with 25 other new sites, during the 38th Session of the World Heritage Committee in Doha, Qatar, in June 2014.
