Kazakhstan, Uzbekistan, Tajikistan & Kyrgyzstan by Motorbike

TAJIKISTAN | Sunday, 28 July 2013 | Views [3077] | Comments [1]

The Central Asian Ring - an adventure tour on motorbikes via some of the most interesting roads of Kazakhstan, Uzbekistan, Tajikistan and Kyrgyzstan! A world called Central Asia. The tour will take us from the vast Kazakh steppes along the Zailiyskiy-Alatau Mountains into Uzbekistan where we visit the ancient, 3,000 years old Silk Road cities of Samarka

We then move into the Fan Mountains of Tajikistan rising up to the "Roof of the World", the Pamirs – described as one of the most remote places on earth. The road will take us through through the Anzob tunnel - named the death tunnel - though the Hissar ridge at a length of some 5 kilometers. There we follow the famous M41 highway (Pamir) with mountain passes at an altitude of nearly 5000 meters. Leaving Tajikistan, the bright and wonderful nature of Kyrgyzstan looms with its highly talked about mountain lakes and rivers.

And, of course the entire tour introduces the hospitable and friendly people of these countries showing their culture and way of life. 4,500ks, across four different countries, bordering countries such as Afhanistan, Pakistan and China.  

- Pamir highway and the highest mountain pass of the former USSR (4655m).

- The Mars landscape on the earth, Descent into meteor crater

- The road of Genghis Khan and the secret trail of the Silk Way

- Unfinished route and favorite lakes of Aleksandar Macedonian 

 "This is not a usual motorcycle tour. This is a challenge for those who are ready for real adventures. This tour requires endurance and fortitude. The accommodation conditions vary from the luxurious to the quite disappointing" Marat Buzubaev, SilkOffRoad

One evening after the honeymoon, the new bride said to her
husband, "Honey, I've been thinking. Now that we're married,
I think it's time you quit hunting, shooting and fishing.
Maybe you should sell your guns, tackle and boat."

The husband got a horrified look on his face.

She said, "Darling, what's wrong?"

"For a minute there you sounded exactly like my ex-wife."

"Ex-wife!! I didn't know you were married before!!"

"I wasn't."
