Highlights

  • Travel beyond the headlines and discover a world of culture, fascinating Persian ruins and famously welcoming local people.
  • Uzbekistan is covered mostly by the arid Kyzyl Kumdesert in the central regions and by striking mountain ranges in the north. The music in Uzbekistan is similar to Persian classical music, and makes use of lutes, drums and jingles to create poetic love songs. This
  • soundtrack adds to the endless reasons as to why Uzbekistan is an awe-inspiring country to visit.
  • Tehran boasts art galleries and restaurants galore - perfect for trying Iranian specialities such as the national dish, Ghormeh Sabzi, made with curried vegetables and served with Tadik (crunchy rice).
  • Turkmenistan has some of the remotest scenery on Earth. Most of the country is covered by the inhospitable Karakum Desert. The indigenous people are the Turkmen who mainly live outside the urban centres, many of whom still live a nomadic or semi-nomadic way
  • of life. The rural Turkmen are a hospitable people whose culture and way of life has altered little in hundreds of years.
  • One unusual attraction is the famous Darvasa Gas Crater, lying deep in the deserts of Turkmenistan. Initially the result of an industrial accident by Soviet gas prospectors, it is a huge burning crater that has been on fire for decades by being kept alight by the natural gas in the ground. It's a bewildering and mesmerising sight, especially after dark!
