Stretching from the Caspian Sea to the borders of western China, the ‘Stans’ of Central Asia encompass a vast expanse of land, cultures and history. Lying at the crossroads of an intricate web of trading routes, this region has witnessed the movement of goods, people and ideas between Europe and Asia for centuries.
This incredible journey takes you from Turkmenistan and across the Asian steppes to the mountains of Kazakhstan, passing through the homelands of the Uzbeks, the Tajiks and the Kyrgyz along the way. You’ll follow part of the old Silk Road, taking in the ancient ruins of Merv and the almost legendary cities of Bukhara, Samarkand and Tashkent as you cross the Kyzylkum Desert towards Termez.
Passing through some of Central Asia’s most beautiful landscapes, you’ll gaze upon some of the world’s highest peaks, spend time amongst the fertile Ferghana Valley and Tien Shan Mountains, walk around Son Kul Lake and Iskandar Kol Lake and drive through the Karakum Desert before ending your adventure in Almaty, Kazakhstan’s most important city.
This is an example itinerary to give you an idea of what we can offer.
