  • The Stans of Central Asia - for thousands of years, these lands were sought after and conquered by some of the world's greatest leaders from Alexander, Attila, Genghis Khan, Tamerlane, Babur, Cyrus, and Darius of ancient Persia. Today it is the world's greatest adventure seekers who are drawn to these exotic lands of Kazakhstan, Kyrgyzstan, Uzbekistan, Tajikistan and Turkmenistan. Lands filled with harsh deserts, towering snow-capped peaks, ancient cities and fortresses with exotic cultures.

    Our extensive 24 days tour will take you through all the STAN countries and introduce to their unique history, traditions and culture. You will learn a lot about life, culture and the history of people living in the heart of Asia. Journey past giant burning gas pits, intrinsically tiled mosques, alpine lakes bordered by yurt camps, grand monuments, rural villages and colourful markets on this epic trip through the heart of Central Asia.

    Uzbekistan is one of the most common reasons why people visit Central Asia. With its distinctively beautiful Central Asian turquoise mosques and rich history, Uzbekistan more or less defines Central Asia when one talks about the region. And like the rest of the region, much of its beauty lies in its friendly people. We will start our journey from Tashkent that serves as a regional transport hub for visiting all 5 Central Asian countries. In Tashkent we will visit complex of Khast-Imam where one of Islam's most sacred relics - the world's oldest Koran that was compiled only 19 years after Muhammad's death. In the southern part of country we will visit ancient Buddhist monuments and will learn that Zorooastrianism was probably originated here.

    We will visit some of the oldest cities in the world such as the legendary Samarkand, Bukhara and Khiva. Each one boasts a glorious architectural legacy that is simply dazzling. In Samarkand you will enjoy its famous Registan square and have a look at th burial place of one of the world's most ruthless conquerors - Tamerlane. Your trip to Fergana valley, land of hereditary craftsmen will be unforgettable, and also will visit the Palace of the Khudayar Khan in the former capital city of the Kokand Khanate, and in Rishtan you will have a chance to see the most famous pottery of Central Asia.

    Kyrgyzstan's stunning mountains and a nomadic horse-riding culture are its main assets. Kyrgyzstan is quite simply one of the most beautiful countries on earth. The Mountains of Heaven that stretch majestically across its length and breadth are lush, high and wild, dissected by sweeping steppe lands, primal forests and turquoise lakes. Memories of the time spent on the sunny beaches of the Issyk-Kul Lake surrounded by snow-capped mountains will be one of the brightest ones taken from the trip. There you will also see ancient petroglyphs in the open-air museum that is sometimes called 'A Stone Garden'.

    Kazakhstan, the world’s largest landlocked country, is undoubtedly the most economically advanced of the Central Asian ‘stans’. Rich in oil and minerals, the country has undergone a transformation in recent years that has seen it emerge from the windblown steppes of Asia to become the dominant presence in the region.

    Tajikistan's mountains are spectacular and the way of life is simple. It is a destination that promises adventure and a real sense of discovery, places like Penjikent and the old Uzbek town of Khujand are high on the list of must-see highlights. In Tajikistan you will have an excursion to Khujand, visit to the fortress of Timur-Malik that was considered as one of the unassailable fortresses in Central Asia but was assaulted by Genghis Khan army; and you will also stopover the mosque and madrasah of Shaikh Muslihiddin, the ruler of Khujand and a poet living in the 12th century. We will ride along the mountain route through a picturesque pass Anzob (3300 meters above the sea level). Once in Dushanbe we will make a short trip to the most important landmarks of Tajikistan - Hissar Fortress that is believed to be 2,500 years old.

    Turkmenistan, The ‘North Korea’ of Central Asia, shrouded in mystery, a country of wonders and contrasts, will amaze your imagination with the monuments of one of the biggest cities of the ancient world - Merv, a desert city stacked by Genghis Khan. Our journey will leads us to Ashgabat, the splendid capital of Turkmenistan, built predominantly of white marble.
    If you like riding, come for the famed Akhal-Teke horses, the predecessors of Arabian breed. In Kunya-Urgench, the ancient capital of the Khorezm Khanate, you will learn its fascinating history.

    Chorsu Bazaar
    trip advisor rating
    Tashkent
    Chorsu Bazaar is Tashkent’s most famous farmers market, topped by a giant green dome, is a delightful slice of city life spilling into the streets off Old Town’s southern edge. If it grows and it’s edible, it’s here.
    Alay Bazaar
    trip advisor rating
    Tashkent
    Alay Bazaar is one of the oldest bazaars of Tashkent. Presumably, it emerged in 12-13th centuries on the Mount Alay, but not as a market, but only a place of trade on the trade route, going from East Turkestan in the Fergana Valley.
