Explore the Silk Road in Kyrgyzstan:
The Best Vacation Tours for You!
  • Welcome to Silk Road Explore! We are a company dedicated to providing the highest quality and best priced tours for travelers that want to tread the paths of the Silk Road in Kyrgyzstan. Kyrgyzstan, a Central Asian country located west of China and south of Kazakhstan, has some of the most surreal and stunning natural beauty in the world. The Tien Shan Mountains (rated one of the top ten most beautiful mountain ranges in the world) meander across the country in an unending serious of snow-capped mountain peaks underscored with vibrant green mountain pastures, hidden waterfalls, blooming meadows, winding rivers, and brilliant blue alpine lakes. Most of the country is remote, untamed wilderness traversed only by quiet nomadic families and their herds. Besides the occasional yurt and small village, most travelers in Kyrgyzstan will simply find themselves face to face with nature. You’d be hard-pressed to find a more peaceful, beautiful location for a vacation. While merchants and travelers on the Silk Road experienced this region mainly by caravan, travelers in Kyrgyzstan today can explore the Silk Road in a variety of different ways. Horseback, trekking, cycling, and 4x4 tours are all available in Kyrgyzstan. For an even more adventurous Silk Road experience, travelers can go paragliding, white water rafting, or diving to name a few. Probably the most unique aspect of traveling in Kyrgyzstan is the culture. Kyrgyzstan’s ancestry is largely nomadic. While many nomadic cultures have planted roots all over the world and settled down, Kyrgyzstan still contains a large number of traditionally nomadic families that continue to roam the mountains. Nomadic culture places a high value on hospitality, hard work, traditions, and an ability to live off the land. Travelers today can take tours that introduce them to Kyrgyz culture and even learn nomadic skills directly from nomadic families. What better way to experience the Silk Road than by learning about the cultures that still call it home? Kyrgyzstan is brimming with beauty, adventure, personality, and possibilities. Browse through our tours and find a trip that’s perfect for you!
