No dangers I think unless you are traveling alone in deserts. The Silk road streches long into present Turcky. So, it depends on which part of the Silk Road you are going to.

The travel along was incredibly dangerous. When traveling one of the 3 main routes: Northern, Central, and Southern, travelers faced desolate white-hot sand dunes in the desert, forbidding mountains, brutal winds, poisonous insects, and reptiles, not to mention bandits and pirates. Due to these hardships traders did not make the entire trip; instead they used a technique known as relay. Each trader would travel a certain distance, exchange their goods, and return.

Depends on where you at in the deserts you face death from heat and mirages. In other places you face falling of cliffs. You face getting your goods stolen, and freezing to death.

Well there was the Gobi Desert, the even more dangerous Taklamakan Desert, and there were also the dangerous terrain, bandits and the hunger, and starvation if you weren't well prepared.

The silk Road was named the (silk road) because Chinese silk was the main thing traded. But porcelain, spices, dates, tea, jewels, and perfumes were all traded too. Europeans were hungry for exotic things from China and India. (China and India were wealthier than European countries then.)

Out the silk road trade ended around 1453, because rulers in Turkey banned trade with the west. They were angry about the Crusades.
