Astana

Authentic Silk Road Journey of a Lifetime

Published in Silk Road

The ancient Silk Road routes connected East and West; from China to Turkey, through Central Asia to India, Persia and the Middle East. A trade route for hundreds of years and a cultural bridge linking cultures, religions, languages. and traditions. Caravans took years to ply the routes that now take only days for us as we explore destinations in Uzbekistan, Turkmenistan, Kyrgyzstan and the China Silk Road.

This tour is the perfect combination of culture, adventure, ancient and modern history and natural wonders; visit UNESCO World Heritage sites and magnificent mountain ranges and deserts. Clamber over the ruins of Parthian fortresses, feel the shimmer in the desert night of a giant gas crater, enjoy the friendly hospitality of nomadic yurt camps and fabulous boutique hotels. Marvel at the beauty of medieval turquoise tiles glittering in the sun and trek around a stunning glacial Lake in Kyrgyzstan on local ponies. Shop the bazaars from Samarkand to Ashgabat, still as bustling as ever, and discover a world of traditional tastes and authentic cultural experiences. Feel the pulse of civilization thrumming through the treasures of the Silk Road!
