Central Asia

Venture into Central Asia, along paths less followed, with Zegrahm Expeditions, where you’ll uncover the mysteries of this enigmatic region on immersive Silk Road tours—by land and luxury rail—and chart a course for the ‘Stans, including Turkmenistan, Uzbekistan, and Kazakhstan. As part of our immersive Central Asia tours, we take in local folkloric performances, indulge in regional cuisine, weave our way through bustling markets and take in the remarkable natural beauty and striking Islamic architecture of this, the very crossroads of civilization. Your Silk Road tour may follow in the footsteps of Marco Polo, conjuring up images of his tales of desert kingdoms, yet you’ll travel in modern-day luxury.
