I think the Silk Road map as well as the list of countries on top of the page lacks some major "player" countries of the time - Armenia and Georgia in particular. If you need more info, please do not hesitate to let me know. Cheers

Can anyone help a fellow Tripatini member with a question about driving through Kazakhstan? If so, please respond not on this wall but at this link to our Ask A Travel Pro forum.

I am surprised Turkey is not on the list of countries here. Constantinople (Istanbul) was one of the most important European destinations for the trade from the East, as even the map above indicates; and it was reached by a land route from Persia, primarily via Syria -- which must also be added to the list, since its seaports as well were transshipment points on the final leg of the Silk Road.

Hello Sarah,
I spent time in Tajikistan this summer and highly recommend the you visit there. We stayed in homes, camping out in the family room and enjoyed the company and food of the locals. There is very little tourism and people benefit directly from your visit. I'd hurry back in an instant. You may wish to look into small hotels and home stays operated by the Aga Khan foundation.
I work in the travel industry and also recommend a couple of Silk Road tours that we operate:


We have others too. I think an ideal trip is a mixture of independent travel together with a few small group adventures thrown in so that you can relax and let someone else do the planning once in a while.
Bon Voyage!

The Khunjerab Pass,the highest border crossing in the world (between Pakistan and China) opened in May of 1986. The crossing is an experience in majestic mountain scenery and a culture that has by and large remained intact. This portion of the Silk Road has been amongst the most attractive. Via the Khunjerab Pass the Shangri-la region of Pakistan is now connected to other Central Asia countries including Western China (Xinjiang), Kyrghyzstan, Uzbekistan, Tajikistan, Kazakhstan and Turkmenistan.

One of the main reasons I set this group up is that next summer, I will be travelling overland from Australia back to the UK, possibly along a Silk Road route. I'm blogging both the planning and actual travel experience at, and all comments and advice are most welcome...
