Event description

Description

With a number of high profile Silk Road books on every history lover’s bedside table right now and Wild Frontiers’ own 47-day epic adventure across six countries making its dazzling debut last summer, Central Asia and the Old Silk Road is more than just back on the map.

Discover the lure and legends of this ancient trading route as travel writer Emma Thomson (who knows the region well having travelled on our Great Silk Road Adventure in 2016) and our very own Jonny Bealby take you on a journey into the heart of Central Asia.

Magnificent cities such as Bukhara and Samarkand still exude a timeless aura of wonder and tradition, their gradual restoration to former glory instilling in them a captivating charm that harks back to the merchant caravans of old. For nature lovers the mountains and glaciers, deserts and forests provide a bountiful abundance of fauna and flora, whilst those looking for a more cultural experience will find themselves surrounded by customs and traditions that have changed little over the intervening centuries. Remote and at times harsh, Central Asia is always magnificent and it provides an ideal destination for those looking for something out of the ordinary.
