Though they have much in common, Kyrgyzstan and Uzbekistan have their own characters. This Uzbekistan-Kyrgyzstan Tour starts with the great cities of Uzbekistan, which flourished as cosmopolitan centers along the Silk Road. Tashkent, Samarkand, and Bukhara prospered from the caravans and travelers who passed through, and the cities themselves grew as they started attracting more and more architects, artisans, and scholars. Visit the main destinations in each city, walk among the rows of vendors selling cloth, fruit, and more in bazaars, and enjoy the delicious dishes of Uzbek cuisine at warm and welcoming restaurants. The second part of the tour is all about the Land of Heavenly Mountains - Kyrgyzstan. From the pristine shores of Son-Kul, where a broad lake and yurt camps nestle among the mountain peaks, to the broad expanse of Issyk-Kul, the world’s largest saline lake (so salty it never freezes), Kyrgyzstan is a land of ethereal beauty at the top of Central Asia. Going to both countries makes the Uzbekistan-Kyrgyzstan Tour the best tour for seeing the most of Central Asia in one tour, from the marvels of ancient cities to the serenity of nature.
