We had a fantastic trip to Turkmenistan, Tajikistan, Uzbekistan, and Kyrgyzstan. Thank you Silk Road Treasure Tours for planning such a fabulous trip! A few highlights from each country:
Turkmenistan: The Russian market and the equestrian center were our favorite experiences in Ashgabat. The Russian market allowed us to meet the local people and see them going about their daily life. If you love horses which my husband does then the equestrian center is a must visit. We learned a lot in our short visit.
Tajikistan: I had no idea what to expect from Tajikistan. I knew I wanted to see the 7 lakes, Fann mountains, because I had read about them prior to the trip. The 7 lakes were breathtaking. The beautiful Fann Mountains in the background were beyond description. Stay overnight in Penjikent and make the drive and hike to the 7 lakes. Such a great experience!
Uzbekistan: We were in Bukhara for the Silk and Spice Festival. The festival is such an exciting time for the city of Bukhara. The people are so warm and inviting. The atmosphere and all those aromatic spices are unforgettable.
Kyrgyzstan: The scenery in Kyrgyzstan is breathtaking. There is so many things to see and do in this lovely country. Hiking, horseback riding, and enjoying the handicrafts, are just a few of the fabulous things that are available. Everyone should try to see Issyk kul lake. It is one of the most stunning sites with the Tian Shan mountain range in the background. I can't wait to go back again.
If you are ready for a great experience, call Zulya immediately! Silk Road Treasure Tours will help provide you with unforgettable memories.
