Great Silk Road

WHAT IS 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.

“Can’t tell you how much we enjoyed the trip. The guides, Azat and Madina could not be beat. They worked so hard to make sure we were comfortable and taken care of well. Their knowledge expanded our grasp of the land, the people and our history. We were so fortunate to team up with a great group of people. The camaraderie we had made each day a joy. This trip went beyond our expectations and we wouldn’t hesitate to recommend it to anyone or to use Salom Travel again.”
