What did the 1934 journey look like for the Chinese Communist Party? Danish adventurer Mads Vesterager Nielsen shows us.

Watch as Mads Vesterager Nielsen motorbikes the route of the Long March, crossing over nine provinces in China. Today marks the 100th anniversary of the Chinese Communist Party, and the Long March was one of the greatest and most difficult accomplishments of the Party in its early years. All along the route, there are monuments and museums documenting the march and the struggles the CCP forces faced.
