Beginning in August 2018, Welsh adventurer Ash Dykes will set out to be the first person to walk the entire length of the Yangtze River. The 6437km journey will start at the river’s source in the Tibetan Plateau – the highest of any major river in the world – and follow its course through eleven provinces to the mouth near Shanghai where it flows into the East China Sea. He hopes to achieve it in one year, and SKINS is with him every step of the way.
