The legendary ‘Silk Road’ occupies a mythical place in the imaginations of western travellers, a remote region in the centre of the Eurasian landmass through which countless traders journeyed on their voyages between Europe and the Far East. As well as commerce, the exchange of ideas and cultures flowed through the various arteries of the Silk Road, resulting in an incredible flowering of architecture, education and religion.
Placed at the heart of the region lie the enigmatic sites and history of Uzbekistan. On this tour we visit the truly astounding sites of Khiva and central Asia’s holiest city, Bukhara and of course take in the spectacular architecture of Samarkand’s Registan – one of the most stunning collections of architecture to be found anywhere. We spend a night in a yurt at Lake Aydarkul, the centre of Uzbekistan’s developing ecotourism, and finish in the busy capital of Tashkent.
