In the very heart of the Silk Road, Kyrgyzstan shines as an astounding and wild place. Dominated by the Tien Shan mountains, it is a country where nomadic peoples still graze their livestock in secluded valleys. Shaped by glaciers, wind, and snaking rivers, you can surround yourself by 7000 meter peaks and high desert skies. We’ll ride alongside horsemen and hear their tales of bravery and hardship in this unforgiving land. Hike along ancient paths over mountain passes in the footsteps of early caravans of traders and explorers. Bathe in hot springs. Watch the milky way rise in perfectly dark skies while exploring the shores of crystalline alpine lakes. Drink endless cups of warming chai in a yurt. While still quite wild and unexplored, the hospitality of the local people and nomads makes for an unforgettable adventure. This trip is a must for seasoned hikers and travelers, seeking out the ultimate adventure.

GRADE: This trip is graded moderate to challenging and is suitable for fit hikers capable of carrying kit and enduring high-elevation conditions. The nights can be cold and the high mountain weather can change very quickly. The accommodation and facilities are basic. As with all trips to the mountains local conditions or weather can affect the itinerary. In this case we will make alternative plans.

This kaleidoscopic tour takes us to Uzbekistan, deep in the heart of Central Asia we visit the imperial cities of Samarkand and Bukhara and hike the pretty traditional villages of the Nuratau Mountains, this is a cultural, hiking adventure like no other.

No city is more synonymous with the Silk Road then the imperial city of Samarkand once a thriving trading post where merchants travelled from far and wide to trade their wares. The city mosques and mausoleums, glint with gleaming gold, emerald and turquoise, here we have two days to explore the magic and rich history of this unrivalled Silk Road City.

Departing Samarkand we drive into the Nuratau mountains once a refuge for Nomadic tribes escaping the endless Sands of the Kyzylkum desert for fresh mountain air, before settling to cultivate the hillsides with herbs, walnuts pistachios and mulberries.
Now a mountain hideaway of clear starry nights birdsong and fragrant flowers and home to endangered species like Severtsov wild sheep. We explore the valleys and experience traditional rural Uzbek life, weaving carpets, bread making and agriculture.
We hike to traditional villages that hug the hillsides visiting castle ruins, petroglyphs, springs and waterfalls before driving back to the central lowlands.

Our drive takes us to Central Asia’s holiest city, Bukhara with buildings spanning a thousand years of history, the centre is an architectural preserve, full of madrassas and minarets, caravanserais a royal fortress and the remnants of a once-vast bazaar which once housed more than 100 madrassas and 300 mosques. After exploring this fascinating city we take the evening train to Samarkand for our last evening in this spectacular country finishing with a traditional Uzbek feast in one of the many eateries, before turning in for the night and our flight home
