Silk Road: Wild Mountains, Fabled Towns

Kyrgyzstan and Uzbekistan may be Central Asian neighbours, but they couldn’t be more different. For while Kyrgyzstan is a land of epic mountain scenery and semi-nomadic shepherds, Uzbekistan is home to the atmospheric towns of Samarkand, Bukhara and Khiva, probably Central Asia’s most revered Silk Road trading centres.

Starting in the mountains of Kyrgyzstan we’ll visit great friends of ours – Noorgul, the shepherdess in Son Kul and Jergal, the caretaker of the medieval caravanserai in Tash Rabat. We’ll spend much of our time in traditional yurts and will be introduced to the ways of mountain life on the Old Silk Road, before driving on to the ancient city of Osh. From here we will cross the border into Uzbekistan and travel on to see the fabled cities of Samarkand, Bukhara and Khiva where merchants still ply their wares in the shadow of some of the world’s greatest architectural achievements.

If you like to really get beneath a region’s surface, rather than simply travel through it, this is the trip for you.

The stunning mountain scenery of Kyrgyzstan makes it one of the most beautiful countries on earth.

Kyrgyzstan is one of my favourite countries - the scenery is unmatched pretty much anywhere else.

Always carry a torch with plenty of spare batteries - you'll use it a lot.

Take a pair of binoculars - the bird life is surprisingly good.
