Классический тур в Узбекистан и Кыргызстан

The route of this group tour unites two neighbouring Central Asian republics - Uzbekistan and Kyrgyzstan. A large section of one of the main branches of the Great Silk Road used to pass through the territory of these countries - from China and India through the cities of the fertile Ferghana Valley, and then through Tashkent, Samarkand, Bukhara and Khiva to Europe and the Arab countries. Samarkand is still called the "heart" of this trans-Eurasian system of caravan routes, along which knowledge, culinary recipes, religions, ideas and innovations circulated between East and West.

During a tour across Uzbekistan and Kyrgyzstan, you will visit many ancient cities with their grandiose preserved architecture, picturesque valleys and highlands of the Pamirs, the hot desert of Kyzylkum and the beautiful Lake Issyk-Kul, surrounded by the peaks of the Tien Shan, "southern capital" of Kyrgyzstan - Osh and the Yurt Camp (3600 m) under Lenin Peak (7134 m) in the Pamir Mountains. Such surprising contrasts are quite common on this diverse land.
