The Great Silk Road
For two millennia, the Great Silk Road was the key trade route connecting the East and West from China to the Mediterranean Sea. A primary artery of this ancient trade road passes through Kyrgyzstan. The dales and valleys of the Tien-Shan provided shelter for the merchants, workers, monks and soldiers who journeyed the 6,500 kilometres between east and west.
At the height of the Silk Road's significance, three trade routes traversed Kyrgyzstan, prompting UNESCO to name the Chang'an-Tianshan Corridor a World Heritage Site in 2014. The well-preserved Tash Rabat Caravanserai, at 3,200 meters in Kyrgyzstan's Naryn Province, is a classic example of 15th century lodging for Silk Road travellers. Tourists can visit these historical trade routes by horseback, jeep, bicycle or motorbike. For an authentic experience, you can spend a night in a traditional yurt camp.
