Central Asia

Enigmatic. Uncharted. Historic.

LAYERS OF HISTORY MEASURELESS TO MAN

Kashgar, Samarkand, Ashgabat, Tashkent, Khiva and Bukhara - these names resound with the poetry of a bygone era. Epic history is strewn across Central Asia’s mountain ranges, deserts and steppes, where ancient ruins and sublime minarets recall the great exploits of empires from Alexander the Great to Tamerlane. Some of the world's greatest centers of civilization flourished in this storied region for centuries, and perhaps would be counted among the great cities today, were it not for the ravages of Genghis Khan.
