WHAT IS THE GREAT SILK ROAD?
For centuries, Westerners have read about and dreamed of visiting the exotic places on the Great Silk Road. Few landmarks have tantalized the minds of people more than the legendary caravan routes of Central Asia. Marlowe, Keats, Milton and Kipling all wrote about these Oasis Cities, although none had ever seen them. Remotely located behind barriers of deserts, mountains and politics, these cities had rarely been accessible to non-Muslims and travelers from the West.
These areas are inaccessible no longer. Now travel is open along the length and breadth of the Great Silk Road. All these places, experiences and splendors as seen by Alexander the Great, Gingiz Khan and Tamerlane are now available to you.
