If you want to hike across stunning Georgian Mountains, cross the deserts of Central Asia, marvel at the works of Tamerlane in Samarkand or ride ponies through the Tian Shan Mountains of Kyrgyzstan with Kyrgyz shepherds, then we think you should consider this journey.
This trip explores the land of the Ottomans, travelling along the Turkish coast into the wilds of Cappadocia and on into the Caucasus. Georgia and Armenia have some of the finest churches, cathedrals and monasteries in Christendom, and certainly some of the most magnificently situated. Azerbaijan has the great city of Baku with its imperial Russian splendour, vying for supremacy with massive Soviet brutalism and the modernity of its new found oil wealth.
Crossing the Caspian we come to the land of the Stans, the Deserts of Turkmenistan, the magnificence of Khiva, Bukhara and Samarkand in Uzbekistan and finally to the beautiful untamed mountains and lakes of Kyrgyzstan. If you can manage to find the time, this really is the ultimate journey to explore this wonderful region of Asia.
