Kyrgyzstan – Silk Road Through Celestial Mountains

Kyrgyzstan – Silk Road Through Celestial Mountains

Central Asia has been on my radar for a while, and once I decided on a time to go, the next decision was which part.

In the end I settled on Kyrgyzstan because it was described as “the most accessible and welcoming of the Central Asian republics” with “incredible natural beauty and proud nomadic traditions”.

It’s a long way to go for a cup of coffee…

This travelogue is from our first trip in 2007 as a highly caffeinated team from China through Kyrgyzstan to Uzbekistan along the Silk Road route.

And after all that, a couple of days to relax (and/or max out the credit card!) in Kuala Lumpur.

In what seemed like a scene from a spy novel of the Cold War era, we waited at the border for our contact. And we waited. Although it was late July, and we had left Kashgar in brilliant sunshine and searing heat, up here on the Torugart Pass through the Tien Shan mountains, it was snowing.
