Abstract: In a previous paper (Philica, Article 1097), we started an investigation concerning the travels of Marco Polo, using Google Earth and Wikimapia. In that article, we reconstructed the Polo’s journey from Beijing to Xanadu. Here we analyze his journey from Sapurgan, today Sheberghan in Afghanistan, to Cascar, the oasis city of Kashgar in Xinjiang. In particular, we are proposing a possible way for crossing the Pamir Mountains, after Polo’s words and roads, rivers and lakes displayed by Google Earth.
