I am back from China now and would like to take a moment out of my busy schedule to let you know that your company and your guide Rogin Lee are fantastic. Rogine made my tour of China, his depth of knowledge is incredible and his presentations and introductions were indepth and interesting. Rogin presented China's past and present in a new light. This China tour with Rogin surpassed what I was expecting from any China tour company. I would like to extend my thanks to yourself, Rogin Lee and Mr. Wong, the driver.

We had an absolutely perfect day with our tour guide - Rogin Luo - who took us for a hike along The Great Wall! Didn't know what to expect and were thrilled to have him as our guide. Very imformative, knowledgable and fun! We go to experience a part of The Great Wall that was unrestored and see all its natural beauty. Got a long history lesson along the way! After the hike, we all went to lunch at a small place at the bottom of the hill. Located in a house, we ate lunch in the proprietors bedroom! What a hoot! Rogin is the Best of the Best! This tour company delivered for us and we are extremely grateful.

The Ewenki have no written script but a spoken language composed of three dialects belonging ot the Man-Tungusic branch of the Altaic language family. The schools in pastoral area use Mongolian script, while others in agricultural and mountain areas use the Han language.

Maonan – China 56 Ethnic Groups

The Maonan are aborigines in the western aprt of Nanling Range. They call themselves “A-Nan”, meaning “locals”. The Maonan developed from the ancient tribe “Yue”. Studues show that the Maonan has some historical connections with the “Liao” that existed before the Tang Dynasty and the “Ling” that exist during the Song, Yuan and Ming period. In 1986, they agreed upon the official name of the Maonan.

The Maonan are distributed mainly in Huanjiang Manonan Autonomous County in Hechi, Guangxi Zhuang Autonomous Region.

The Maonan has their own language, which belongs to the Dong-Shui subbranch of the Zhuang-Dong branch of the Sino-Tibetan language family. Having no scrip of their own, almost all the Maonans know both the Han and the Zhuang languages.

Zhuang – China 56 Ethnic Groups
The Zhuang was developed from one branch of the ancient Chinese “Yue” people, and has a close kinship relationship with the “Xi’ou”, “Luoue” people in the Zhou-Qin period, the “Liao”, “Li”, and “Wuhu” people in the Han and Tang Dynasties. In 1965, it was officially named the Zhuang ethnic minority.

The Zhuang has its own language which belongs to the Zhuang-Dong branch of the Sino-Tibetan language family. It has an ancient square Zhuang script, created on the basis of the Chinese characters, which is not popularized and mainly used in writing place names and folk songs, ect. In 1955, a zhuang script based on Latin alphabet was established. In 1982, the script was revised.

Yugur – China 56 Ethnic Groups
“Raohui” is what the Yugurs refer to themselves, whose origins can be traced back to the nomadic ancient Ouigurs in the Erhun River valley during the Tang Dynasty. In 1953, following consultation with the Yugur representatives, the official name of “Yugur” was fixed, which is similar to “Raohui” in pronunciation and means “rich and stable” in Chinese.

The Yugurs are mainly concentrated in the Su’nan Yugur Autonomous County of Zhangye city, Gansu Province. According to the fifth national census in 2000, the Yugur population was 13,719.

The Yugurs use two languages: a Turkic branch of the Altaic language family used by the Yugurs in the western part of the Sunan Yugur Autonomous County; a Mongolian branch of the same language family by those in the eastern part of the county. Having no written script, they use Chinese as a common medium of communication.
