Visit the magic mountains of Kyrgyzstan and Uzbekistan.

Get right off the beaten track on this challenging trip into Central Asia's mountainous hinterland. Beginning in Uzbekistan's capital Tashkent, we travel through the fertile plains of the Fergana Valley before heading for the high country of remote Kyrgyzstan and the dramatically rugged Tian Shan.

Lake Issyk-Kul offers plenty of hiking opportunities, and we'll camp in the wilds of the Mountains before heading down to Bishkek and civilisation. If you're after an out-of-the-box travel adventure through 'the Stans', then this trip is it.
