There are few journeys that can rival a trip along the mighty Pamir Highway, one of the world’s most spectacular stretches of road through dramatic peaks on the roof of the world. A remote area, with isolated villages and rare wildlife, little has changed in centuries. This is a challenging journey through an enigmatic region – exciting is an understatement.
This epic adventure through the five 'stans' gives you a comprehensive overview of this fabled land. Discover the remarkable cities of Khiva, Bukhara and Samarkand, rub shoulders with nomadic herders of the shores of Lake Song Kul, traverse the wild landscapes of Kazakhstan and learn about the ancient civilisations that made up the Silk Road.
The countries of the Silk Road are some of the most evocative on the planet, filled with the romance of traders from the east, lost cities and forgotten empires. Visit Samarkand, Khiva and Bukhara, explore the mountains of Tajikistan, stay at the flaming gas crater of Darwaza and explore the bizarre monuments of Ashgabat.
