Silk Road: Kyrgyzstan & Uzbekistan - 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, including 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 Khiva, Bukhara and Samarkand 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.

Highlights:

  • Visiting the shepherds at Son Kul
  • The stunning mountain scenery of the Tien Shan
  • The Silk Road Caravanserai of Tash Rabat
  • Travelling the Fergana Valley
  • The amazing architectural sights of Khiva, Bukhara and Samarkand

  • Full services of a Wild Frontiers Tour Leader with local guides and drivers
  • 15 breakfasts, 14 lunches, 14 dinners (typically in local restaurants where viable)
  • Drinking water throughout
  • All transport (minibuses, coaster buses and cars as well as a regional flight)
  • 15 nights' accommodation (9 nights in hotels & guesthouses, 4 in traditional yurts and 2 nights in homestays)
  • All entrance fees, sightseeing, excursions and activities as per the itinerary
  • A carbon-offsetting contribution to Carbon Clear (if booking international flights through WF office)

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.

Try Boorsok - deep-fried, diamond-shaped donuts dipped in homemade jam, which are popular at Kyrgyz celebrations.
