The Founder

Hello and thanks for stopping by. I'm Luo Xi (a.k.a. Salma), the founder of Chinatrekking.  I used to work for a couple of Fortune 500 for over 10 years. But due to a hyper-allergy against office bureaucracy and polictics, I quit and began my journey in freelancing.  With a great passion for travel and photography, I've been backpacking "off the beaten track" frequently in recent years. Asia, around the peripheral Himalayas especially, is the particular geographical areas attracting me most for its mysterious religion civilization and breathtaking landscapes.

This website was originally built for providing practical travel information for worldwide backpackers. But to cater for the needs from some of our users/members, we started to offer assistance in planning and organizing China trekking tour for them, which significantly enhanced our  understanding and knowledge of the backpacking industry. We look forward to sharing our valued outdoor experiences with more and more adventurous travellers like us.
