A Silk Road holiday or group tour takes you back in time, to a land of domed mosques, camel-led caravans, caravanserais, and the trade of exotic goods. Spreading throughout Central Asia, the historic silk road trade route is vast, spanning many regions, countries, towns and cities of the Middle East, the Stans, and Asia at large. It weaves through them like blood vessels in the body. Several visits to the Silk Road region will only scratch the surface of its immense history and stunning places to visit.
A Silk Road trip can vary from one week to over a month and focus on one country in depth or span the highlights of many. You can trace the footsteps of ancient traders slowly and steadily by road, absorbing the cultures of each place, or fly to cover greater distances, concentrating on the gems each place has to offer. Whichever route you choose, you can be assured that you will travel in much more comfort & luxury than the traders of old. At TransIndus, we can design a bespoke itinerary to suit your every need, combining history, culture, adventure and nature with luxury to deliver holidays that capture the essence of the Silk Road.
We have a small selection of escorted tours and guest lecturer-led tours of the Silk Road, visiting the main highlights of the ancient trade route. Talk to our specialists to find out more.
The Best Time to Travel the Silk Road
Central Asia and countries along the Silk Road enjoy picture-perfect spring and autumn seasons. Mild weather and little rain are perfect for sightseeing. In the summer, it can get incredibly hot and dusty, making long-distance travel quite uncomfortable, whilst in winter, the region experiences freezing temperatures and snow.
The Silk Road covers a vast network of ancient trading routes spreading across the Middle East, Central Asia, parts of the Indian Subcontinent and China. It would take many months to explore the route in it's entirety and most travellers visit only the biggest highlights of the region over the course of two or three weeks.
Our Silk Road experts have travelled the region in depth and create bespoke itineraries for every client depending on the duration, budget and travel style.
