Uzbekistan is the land-locked heart of Central Asia’s evocative Silk Road. The stunning architecture of its ancient cities links the empires of China and Persia and reflects layers of history that take in the giddy pinnacles of civilisation and culture, but also the depths of oppression.
Travel in the footsteps of those early traders through Uzbekistan and make a visit to Tajikistan to visit its mountain lakes and archaeological site overlooking the Zarafshan Valley. Travel through vast isolated landscapes containing magnificent sites and cultures little changed over time and gain insight into medical practice in these lands - ancient, traditional and modern.
