Central Asia includes some of the most sparsely populated regions in the world and has more than 100 different ethnic groups. Our tours to Central Asia and Asia cover Kazakhstan, Kyrgyzstan, Uzbekistan, Turkmenistan and Tajikistan, and in the far west of Central Asia, Iran.
Uzbekistan is located in the very heart of Central Asia and contains the most famous historical cities of Central Asia: Samarkand, Bukhara, Khiva and Kokand. Bukhara is seen by many Muslims as a place of pilgrimage and the most important city in Islam after Mecca, Medina and Jerusalem.
Kazakhstan is the largest and most developed country in Central Asia. It is an intriguing and little-known land of vast plains, mountainous horizons and beautiful culture.
Arguably no other Central Asian region can boast such abundance of picturesque places as Kyrgyzstan. Three-quarters of its territory is dominated by the majestic mountains of Tien-Shan and Pamir Alay. There is still a very strong nomadic culture and strong national traditions.
Tajikistan, with its unique culture and traditions, is a beautiful country situated in picturesque foothills of Pamir and the Tajiks are one of the most ancient nations of the world.
Turkmenistan is the one of the most forbidden countries of Central Asia, and once provided the bedrock for many of the most powerful empires of their age. Whether you want to explore Kazakh steppe, Kyrgyz Mountains, Tajik glaciers, Turkmen deserts, or Uzbek cultural centers, your magic carpet is Central Asia.
