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.
Motorover’s weeklong, guided motorcycle tour of the Silk Route in Kyrgyzstan starts and ends in the country’s bustling capital, Bishkek. There will be a MotoRover tour manager on the lead bike and the group will be followed by the sweep car that carries your luggage and has 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 this tour were part of the ancient silk road 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 riding 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 tradional horse games, carpet weaving, eagle hunting, yurt stay (traditional Central Asian round tent) and the folklore show will give you an enriching insight into the nomadic lifestyle of the Kyrgyz.
