To travel the length of the Silk Route in either direction is a journey like no other and you will be following in the footsteps of many before you as this is the an historic trade route through Asia. This was the link that allowed the Venetian traders to create such wealth and culture; the lands Alexander, Ghengis Khan, Tamerlane the Magnificent and other great empire builders swept across and this is the road that connected China and Europe.

We have travelled this road since the demise of the Soviet Empire and that’s one of the amazing things about this trip as sitting within this historic framework are all things Soviet. There are some excellent Soviet souvenirs that can be found in the town bazaars along the route.

The landscapes are as diverse as the cultures, from sprawling deserts, vast mountain ranges and wide open plains and because we are travelling overland, we can get way beyond the tourist trail and camp in some of the most beautiful places on Earth.
