Hi I depends on so many things, for instance how long you want to travel there, what you are willing to 'suffer', how much you are willing to spend and so on. My wife and I have only recently come back from traveling around certain part of China and we had a great time but because it was our first time and because of what we learnt from this trip I now know that I would have done it slightly differently.
For a start you can travel around this enormous country for a whole year and still have not seen even a quarter of what there is to see.
We are a couple in our sixties and although we didn't do any real backpacking we did do a lot of walking. Our journey started off as usual in Beijing we saw the tourist sites and from there went by plane to Chengdu, which you could call the gateway to the south and southwest. We visited the Pandas (a must) and a few other sites around the city and from there traveled to Kangding, a whole days traveling westward of Chengdu.
Anyway I will not tell you everything we did and didn't do 'cos you are looking for a route and anyway our route will not be applicable to you id you want to travel at this time of the year because many of the roads to where we went will be closed or impassable at this time of the year. There are an enormous amount of places to travel in in the south of the country whic never get snowed up for instance Guilin and Yangshou is a lovely area and you can spend quite a long time there, the area it is one of Chinas jewels. The area in and around Kunming can be very interesting and there ar lots of places along Chinas southern borders that can be visited but which I cannot tell you about because our route at this time of the year will by now be quite probably snowed in.
I seriously suggest that you get hold of the 'Lonely Planet' or some book like it and peruse it for sometime before you start off on your travels.
Enjoy yourself Ron. dance.gif

I spend half a year traveling in China . Well... How much time do you have? Better have more, since China is BIG... Don't worry too much... Chinese people are the friendliest people on planet earth and it's safe to travel here. If you want to get away from it all try to avoid the places mentioned in the Lonely Planet from time to time. These times are the most rewarding... But of course typical tourist destinations are "must", too. My favorite province...Guizhou...

Have fun... China is amazing!
