Central Asia is home to fabled cities, market bazaars and striking architecture. It conjures images of mystery and intrigue, and centuries-old traditions. Take a journey along the Silk Road, a trading route dating back to ancient civilisation.

Kyrgyzstan is tucked into the heart of Central Asia. You will pass traditional yurt homes, spectacular glaciers, and with 90% of Kyrgyzstan above 1,500m, the snow-capped Tian Shan (Heavenly Mountains) will appear around every corner.

Uzbekistan in contrast, has a rugged and rocky landscape with deserts, mountains and valleys interspersed with pockets of fertile, green land.

Experience abundant ancient culture, intriguing relics, traditional Islamic architecture, friendly local people and stunning scenery; a journey through Central Asia will satisfy the most curious of travellers.
