Yue Xiaoyun, 29, traveled by horse and foot from Northwest China's Xinjiang Uygur autonomous region to the southwestern municipality of Chongqing — nearly 4,400 kilometers — in an adventure spanning more than half a year. He plans to reach his hometown, Fengjie county of Chongqing, on Thursday. [Photo provided to]

Once, to help Hotpot recover from a sore on his back, Yue himself carried the luggage, which weighed more than 20 kilograms, and led the horse for more than 1,500 kilometers — nearly 40 kilometers per day. He suffered nerve damage in his inner thighs and feet in the process.

To overcome long hours of boredom, Yue started posting videos on Douyin, a popular Chinese short-video platform. He posted 72 video clips and won 93,000 followers.
