Trip Overview

Join AdventureWomen in 2021 in Uzbekistan and Kyrgyzstan for a deep exploration of the Silk Road. Evocative and timeless, the fabled Silk Road cities weave together a tapestry of cultures and civilizations. Answer the call of your inner adventure woman explorer and wander in awe among architectural marvels that speak of conquest and untold prosperity. Thread together the details of daily life in fragrant bakeries and high-energy bazaars, in folk art workshops and village teahouses. Forge special connections with the local people – embroidery artists and fashion designers, archaeologists and chefs, each offering a silken strand tied to millennia of precious traditions.

Set out for an immersive two-week adventure through the fascinating collage of Central Asia. From legendary Tashkent and Samarkand in Uzbekistan to historic Bishkek and the spectacular Chon-Kemin Valley in Kyrgyzstan, journey to the fabled cities that once bustled with caravans seeking respite along the world’s most famous trade route, the Silk Road.

Fly into the legendary city of Tashkent and celebrate the beginning of a remarkable journey with your AdventureWomen travel companions at the welcome dinner. Explore the labyrinthine streets of the Old City and Khast Imam Square where elegant, majolica-studded mosques and madrasas echo a legacy of conquests, from Alexander the Great to Tamerlane. In a moment of awe, stand before what may be the oldest Koran in the world.

Follow fragrant wafts through the bustling chaos of Chorsu Bazaar to its numerous bread bakeries, then bring your primed appetite to a hands-on, culinary master class in Uzbek cuisine. The former director of the famed Savitsky Museum joins you for dinner to share her astounding story of safeguarding some 90,000 pieces of dissident Soviet artworks.

Throughout your Central Asia journey, your expert guide offers in-depth insight into its rich history and unique cultural lore. You are also accompanied by an AdventureWomen Ambassador, committed to helping make your experience a fun and personally rewarding adventure, and cheering you on as you reach beyond your comfort zone to take on new challenges in your own unique way!

Delve into Tashkent’s multi-media world of art and design, first heading underground to explore its elaborately decorated, themed subway stations. Admire the fashion-forward designs of an Uzbek clothing entrepreneur who reinterprets colorful, centuries-old ikat motifs, and visit a private family pottery studio where ancient ceramics designs are given new life.

Follow the Silk Road to Khiva, once a bustling trader of camels and coffee. Your walking tour of the old walled city is a visual feast of soaring minarets, dun-colored architecture punctuated with turquoise tiles, and forests of filigreed columns adorning the palaces, mosques, and fortresses that reflect its 12th century heritage. A delightful afternoon visit with Uzbek women offers the chance to explore a truly traditional neighborhood, mahalla.

Travel by train to the tranquil desert oasis of Bukhara, once a Silk Road center of Sephardic Jewry. Take a leisurely stroll through the gardens of the Palace of the and Stars and visit the elaborate mausoleum complex of a 14th century Sufi mystic. In the center of Old Town, a picture-perfect pool reflects the surrounding monuments and domed bazaar. Join an archaeologist to explore the city’s original fortress, the massive 2,000-year-old Ark Citadel. Two memorable dinner events – a colorful, contemporary fashion show presented by whirling dancers, and an enlightening evening with an architect specializing in historical renovations – showcase the seamless weave of old with new.

Among Central Asia’s extraordinary crafts are the gorgeous textiles called suzani. Visit a silk embroidery co-op and witness the arduous process of creating them, from harvesting the silk cocoons and thread dyeing to the complex design motifs that are an integral part of this ancient art.

Continue your train travels to Samarkand, UNESCO’s “crossroads of cultures” city and the chosen capital of Tamerlane’s empire. Take in the sweeping panorama of scale-defying mosques and madrasas from the city’s elegant Registan Square, and pay homage to Tamerlane himself in his fittingly gold-gilded final resting place. A performance of Uzbek folkloric songs and dances by young schoolchildren is, simply, endearing.

Take a beautiful mountain hike, following well-worn shepherd trails to the village of Ohalik where a cheerful cup of tea with local women offers the chance to hear about a time-honored way of life. Back in Samarkand, release your senses (and your camera shutter!) in the animated Siab Bazaar, where traditionally dressed vendors proudly preside over their home-cooked specialties.

Travel next to Kyrgyzstan’s capital, Bishkek, a friendly post-Soviet center with a dramatic mountain backdrop. Learn about the country’s long road to freedom across a tumultuous 20th century and share a delicious regionally-flavored lunch in the convivial company of local women. Colorful, noisy Osh Bazaar is the perfect place to help each other bargain for a special craft, textile, or traditional goodies.

From Bishkek drive through the lovely Chon Kemin Valley, surrounded by soaring mountains that were once the domain of nomadic tribes, and arrive to warm welcomes in the village of Tarsuu. Gather with local village women for an unforgettable DIY life skills lesson, Kyrgyz style: assemble a birch-lattice yurt; create thick felt, the oldest fabric known to humankind; and help cook favorite specialties for your lunch. This perfect prologue sets the scene for Kyrgyzstan’s joyous, and most traditional, occasion: a wedding! Keep cameras at the ready for the bedecked bride and groom, and all the colorful details that make this a truly unique cultural ritual.

Return to Bishkek for your final evening and farewell dinner in Central Asia. Celebrate your new friendships, the memorable hospitality of the Kazakhstani and Kyrgyz people, and the astonishing breadth of experiences on your very own Silk Road odyssey.

Trip Itinerary

Day 1

Arrive in Tashkent
Welcome to Uzbekistan! Although it doesn’t look it today, Tashkent is one of the oldest cities in Uzbekistan. The nation’s capital is a jumble of wide tree-lined boulevards, oversized 20th century Soviet buildings and reconstructed traces of the old city with mud-walled houses, narrow winding lanes, mosques, and madrassahs.

During your adventure, you’ll get to know your expert Central Asian guide, who offers in-depth insight into its rich history and unique cultural lore. You are also accompanied by an AdventureWomen Ambassador, committed to helping make your experience a fun and personally rewarding adventure, and cheering you on as you reach beyond your comfort zone to take on new challenges in your own unique way!

You will be picked up at the airport and transferred to your hotel. One group transfer is included (time TBD). Private transfers are available for an additional fee.

Enjoy a lively welcome dinner as you get to know your fellow travelers this evening. Share stories and learn about why each woman in your trip is excited to explore Uzbekistan and Kyrgyzstan!

Day 2

Tashkent
Start your exploration of Tashkent by strolling through a labyrinth of mud-walled houses, surviving from the 19th century, to Khast Imam Square, where some of Tashkent’s oldest monuments stand. You’ll have a chance to view what Sunni Muslims believe to be the oldest Koran in the world, written on calfskin sometime after the death of Mohammed.

Enjoy lunch at a local restaurant.

Visit Kukeldash Madrassah, one of the largest 16th century madrassahs remaining in Central Asia. Constructed of baked brick with only one façade decorated in majolica and glazed bricks, the madrassah was part of an ensemble that marked the center of the town.

Spilling out of the tiled dome that shades its merchants from the sun, Chorsu Bazaar serves as a place for locals to buy and sell anything from spices and produce to woodwork and embroidery. See bread being baked in tandoor ovens and visit the dried fruit and nut area for some delicious samples.

Enjoy an introduction to Uzbek national cuisine at a culinary master class conducted by a renowned chef.

Enjoy dinner at a local restaurant with your group.
Breakfast, Lunch, Dinner

Overnight: Lotte City Hotel Tashkent Palace

Day 3

Tashkent to Khiva
Hop on the Metro for your sightseeing today. Tashkent boasts the first metro in Central Asia. Begun in 1977, each station has a different theme, some incorporating Central Asian decorative motifs and some resembling Russian palaces. With granite and marble, chandeliers and mosaics, the stations on Tashkent’s three lines are meant to be “art galleries for the people.”

Stroll through the exhibits, including the Uzbek embroidered wall coverings called suzani, ceramics, jewelry, rugs, and musical instruments.

Enjoy lunch at a local restaurant which specializes in laghman, a local noodle dish.

Pay a visit to the colorful and vibrant ikat workshop and showroom of Uzbek designer and entrepreneur, Muhayo Aliyeva, and see how her sketches on paper are transformed into Central Asian fabrics and fashion.

Day 4

Khiva
Head out for a full day tour of Khiva. Start in Ichon Qala, the inner city, which is a UNESCO World Heritage Site. As you approach the old town, you’ll see the same sight as the Silk Road caravans did. Visit the Juma Mosque, a masterpiece of woodcarving featuring 115 carved columns that support the wooden ceiling. The turquoise dome of the Pakhlavan Makhmud Mausoleum, built in 1810 to honor the patron of Khiva, has become a symbol of the city. Stop at the Kunya Ark and explore the 12th century building.

Have lunch at a local restaurant before visiting the Tash-Hauli Palace, the largest of the buildings in the old city. Built between 1832 and 1841, the palace was designed as a more sumptuous replacement for Kunya Ark, encompassing more than 150 rooms surrounding nine courtyards. They include a throne room, a ceremonial and banqueting hall with brick bases for yurts, and the khan’s own personal harem quarters, beautifully decorated with elaborate blue and white tilework, wooden columns, and intricately carved and painted plaster known as ganche.

Visit a village near Khiva for an afternoon meeting with Uzbek women in a traditional “mahalla,” or neighborhood community. Mahallas date back to ancient times as a type of close-knit, self-governing district among neighboring families. Each one has its own council, community center, and leaders deciding civil issues and overseeing mahalla projects, along with a well-established localized culture, bakery, artisan workshops, bazaar, and mosque.
Breakfast, Lunch, Dinner

Overnight: Asia Khiva Hotel

An oasis in the desert, UNESCO-listed Bukhara offers cool shade and rest to the modern traveler as it did to the camel caravans that plied the Silk Road hundreds of years ago. Enjoy lunch at a local restaurant before visiting the Emir’s Summer Palace. Known as the Palace of Moon and Stars, wild peacocks and peahens stroll through the park-like setting. Visit the Mausoleum of Bahauddin Naqshband, a 14th century Sufi mystic, which grew from a simple tomb into a spiritual complex complete with a mosque. Admire the early 19th century Chor Minor Madrassah, whose four slender, blue-topped minarets give it its name.

Attend an evening fashion show and folklore concert at Divan Begi Madrassah, relaxing over dinner and admiring the vivid costumes of the whirling dancers.
Breakfast, Lunch, Dinner

Overnight: Safiya Boutique Hotel

Day 6

Bukhara
Start your day at the Ark Citadel, the original fortress of Bukhara, which is likely more than 2,000 years old. Just behind the Ark Citadel is the infamous Zindan Prison and the even more infamous “bug pit” or “black hole,” the cell where two of Britain’s finest Great Game players were imprisoned before their execution.

Next, stop at the Bolo Hauz Mosque, called the forty-pillar mosque because of the reflection of its colonnades in the pool. The Chashma Ayub Mausoleum is where the Koranic prophet Ayub (the Biblical prophet Job) reportedly struck the ground with his staff, causing water to immediately bubble up from a spring. Continue on to the Samani Mausoleum and the Kalon Mosque.

Visit a private studio to learn from a master marionette-maker the process of creating traditional Uzbek puppets. The expressive puppets have unique faces and are dressed in traditional Uzbek garments. It may take seven or eight days to finish a puppet.

Samarkand
Head out for a full day of exploration in Samarkand. Start at the Gur-Emir Mausoleum, which features a heavily gilded central dome. Continue to Registan Square, the centerpiece of Samarkand. The three emblematic madrassahs frame the square and loom over the empty space in the center. Stop at the Bibi Khanum Mosque and the row of tombs and mausoleums collectively called Shah-i-Zinda.

Head to a very local restaurant to try osh, the well-known local rice dish. The lunch is simple, and the signs won’t be in English, but this is a very authentic dining experience!

Visit a workshop where handcrafted paper is made according to traditions handed down from the 8th century.

Enjoy a performance of traditional Uzbek dances by the young Janona Dance Troupe, consisting of schoolchildren ages 7 to 11.

Have dinner with your group at a local restaurant.

Breakfast, Dinner

Overnight: Plaza Hotel

Day 11

Bishkek
Built in 1985, the House of Parliament Building was the site of the 2005 Tulip Revolution that led to the resignation of then-President Askar Akayev. Continue to Ala-Too Square, where the public gathers to celebrate – or to demonstrate. In 2003, a new monument, called “Freedom”, replaced the square’s giant Lenin statue. The Manas monument on Ala-Too square dedicated to the hero of the national epic Manas was erected in 2011 to coincide with the 20th anniversary of Kyrgyz independence.

Enjoy lunch in a local home before continuing your exploration of Bishkek. The tree-lined Youth Avenue, where students come and go, is just west of the Philharmonic building, and is the site of Bishkek’s first art installation, a huge pair of sunglasses called “Point of View.” Next, visit the State Museum of Fine Arts, which focuses on art created during the Soviet period, and has a collection of more than 15,000 paintings, sculptures and decorative pieces.

Enjoy a master class in the art of wearing the “beldemchi,” a traditional Kyrgyz skirt typically worn by married women after becoming a mother, as well as the intricately wrapped turban-like headdress, known as an “elechek.” Have dinner at the Supara Ethno Complex.
Breakfast, Lunch, Dinner

Overnight: Plaza Hotel

Day 12

Bishkek to the Chon-Kemin Valley
Bishkek’s largest market, Osh Bazaar is a true sensory experience of sights and smells. Travelers can purchase local crafts, dried fruit, fermented milk, rice, grains, and of course the brightly colored Kyrgyz textiles.

The journey to Chon-Kemin Valley, with stops, will take up most of the day, with a total driving time of approximately three hours. Built in the 11th century, Burana is one of the only existing watchtowers on the old Silk Road that traversed Kyrgyzstan and features a magnificent view from the top.

Enjoy lunch at a local family home en route. Continue driving through the Chon-Kemin Valley to the town of Tarsuu for an overnight stay, where you will be hosted by a local Kyrgyz family at a guesthouse.

At the guesthouse, witness the cultural rituals and traditions surrounding one of the most joyous occasions in Kyrgyzstan: a wedding.
Breakfast, Lunch, Dinner

Overnight: Kemin Guesthouse

Day 13

Chon-Kemin Valley to Bishkek
You’ll have the opportunity this morning to join with local Kyrgyz women to better understand three important facets of rural Kyrgyz life: yurt assembly, felt making, and the cooking of traditional cuisine. Learn how the Kyrgyz set up their yurts, the round collapsible homes that nomads have lived in for thousands of years. Enjoy a felt-making demonstration. Kyrgyz have always used felted wool to cover their yurts, and to make rugs, bags, slippers and hats. In 2012, the art of making these felt rugs was included on the UNESCO List of Intangible Cultural Heritage in Need of Urgent Safeguarding. Finally, learn how to cook two of Kyrgystan’s beloved specialties, beshbarmak (meat and noodle dish) and boorsok (fried yeast dough).

This afternoon you have a couple of choices. Grab your rod and bait for a fishing expedition on Chon-Kemin River or head out on a horseback ride with your guide.

Drive about three hours back to Bishkek, arriving this evening.

Have a farewell dinner with your new AdventureWomen friends. Reminisce over all the memories you have made and celebrate the end of an amazing journey through this truly spectacular country.
