The Silk Road is one of the world’s oldest and historically important trade routes and had a huge influence upon the civilizations of the West. A series of trade routes connecting China to the Mediterranean via the Central Asian steppes, the Silk Road covers some of the most inhospitable terrain on the planet.
The vast plains and great deserts create an unmissable wilderness landscape, home to nomadic tribes and marauding warriors. The Silk Road is also home to the forgotten cities that were once the centre of civilization – Samarkand and Bokhara in Uzbekistan, and Kashgar, regal posts on this incredible journey to Xi'an and Beijing.
