||Central Asia : Travel, Accommodation and Tours
(Note: This company which used this website stopped functioning long ago. Today most of this website is of purely archival value.) We offer tours and travel to Kyrgyzstan, and also visa, and accommodation for Central Asia, which is one of the finest regions for tourism in the world with its natural beauty (the finest example is Kyrgyzstan) and man-made beauty. It has created such a deep impression in the minds of people who have visited this region that several writers have drawn inspiration from it, and conducted imaginary tours to mythical cities such as Shangri-La and Xanadu, both of which were located in Central Asia or in Kyrgyzstan, even in fiction! This proves that this area has been known to a select few for many centuries now.
This region has traditionally been hidden from the rest of the world, travel here being difficult due to the great mountains to the south and the east (and indeed, inside much of central Asia), and the vast grasslands in the west and the north. It was accessible only to travellers on the great silk road between China and Europe, and to armies of conquerors coming from the east and the north. For this reason few came here, and tourism was almost unknown here till a few years ago. This was a cause for not knowing the very existence of a very nice tourism destination for many.
In fact, Ferghana in Kyrgyzstan, and Bukhara & Samarkand in Uzbekistan were the world's finest destinations at that time. While some intrepid few managed to visit, for much of the twentieth century, large parts of central Asia inside China, the USSR, and Afghanistan were forbidden areas for foreigners (and even for countrymen), and visa was strictly by internal permission and extensive documents.
So there were practically no agents offering tours and travels in Kyrgyzhstan, Kazakhstan and Uzbekistan.
For today's visitor, all this has changed. With the collapse of the Soviet Union, foreigners can come and go as they wish and the treasures of Central Asia are again available for viewing by anyone who wishes to see them, for the first time in many centuries. Though some areas (namely Afghanistan) are troubled areas, other destinations are as peaceful as you want them to be! The three best out of all these travel destinations are Kyrgystan, Uzbekistan, and Kazakhstan. We are a Central Asian tour operator based in the capital, Bishkek Kyrgyzstan, and invite you to experience a tour to this fantastic part of the globe. You can also see a Kyrgyzstan map on this page. There is a Kazakhstan map on this page. There is an Uzbekistan map on this page.
