Afghanistan Horse Trek - Riding the Wakhan

Dates: 18th August - 8th September 2014
£3000
In the summer of 2014 we will be heading out to one of world's most remote corners. A 22-day odyssey to meet and live with one of the world's last and least visited nomadic cultures: The Kyrgyz of the Afghan Pamir. We will begin and end in Tajikistan's capital Dushanbe travelling along the dramatic Pamir highway before crossing over into Afghanistan, passing through the Wakhan Corridor into the Afghan Pamir. From here we will meet our horses. What better way to explore Chaqmaqtin Lake and the surrounding area than on horse back.

Join us on a 22-day odyssey to meet and live with one of the world's last and least visited nomadic cultures: The Kyrgyz of the Afghan Pamir.

From here we will carry on by foot to explore Chaqmaqtin Lake and the surrounding area. We will have the opportunity to meet Kyrgyz nomads who graze their livestock here during the summer months as well as seeing ancient tombs and Buddhist engravings which live as a reminder of this once great section of the silk route.

Melon & Grapes - Grand Afghan Tour

Dates: 13th - 27th September 2014
£2450
Each Autumn we run a trip to Afghanistan and we think it is the perfect time to visit. Summer can be blisteringly hot and winter icy cold. Spring has its charms, but for us it has to be Autumn because of the fruit. How a land that appears to be made entirely of bare rock can produce melons as large as beach balls and grapes bursting with juice is one of life’s great mysteries. This trip shows the best of Afghanistan at the best time with as much fresh fruit thrown in as you can eat.

Silk Road Cities 2014 - Uzbekistan

Dates : 18th - 30th October 2014

Uzbekistan epitomises the silk road. Empty desert highways and isolated oasis cities that stand as a reminder of the days of Timur, when half of Asia was ruled from Central Asia. On this trip, we visit three of the best preserved cities on the silk road as well as getting a feeling for what life is like in post-soviet Central Asia.
