Kyrgyzstan is one of the best-kept secrets of Central Asia. It is a magical land of snow-capped mountains that disappear into the clouds, alpine lakes with turquoise water, stunning gorges, glacial rivers and vast swathes of velvety grasslands dotted with wild horses and cattle grazing peacefully.
Located to the north of India, Kyrgyzstan is a landlocked country but has the world’s second largest alpine lake, the Issyk-Kul.
This weeklong guided self-drive road trip of the silk route in Kyrgyzstan will start and end in the country’s bustling capital, Bishkek. A MotoRover tour manager will be in the 'lead' car for navigation and the group will be followed by the 'sweep' car with a mechanic and first-aid kit on board to ensure that you get the support required to explore this foreign land.
All the paved roads on our route were part of the ancient silk route that was used for transporting silk and spices from China to the European continent. However, the real beauty of Kyrgyzstan reveals itself only when you venture off-road. Our route has a mix of paved and dirt road driving that takes you through breath-taking landscapes and mountain passes.
That’s not all, carefully selected sights like the Tash Rabat caravanserai and cultural experiences like the traditional Kyrgyz horse games, eagle hunting show and the folklore show will give you an enriching insight into the nomadic lifestyle of the Kyrgyz.
All you have to do is Arrive and drive!
