Journey Through Two of Central Asia's Stunning 'Stans' ... Tajikistan and Kyrgyzstan

With dramatic mountain landscapes, stark and craggy ridges, and rolling open pastures, it's easy to see why an adventurous traveller would be drawn to the breathtaking natural beauty of Tajikistan and Kyrgyzstan. These two countries are part of the "seven Stans" of Central Asia--an area rich with history that traces back to the mighty conquerors and caravan merchants of the ...

The Amazing Art of Bread Baking in Tajikistan

In Tajikistan, bread is still baked in a beautiful, traditional way at Shamsullo Dustov's house in Kumsangir--just 30 miles from the Afghan border. Much of the surrounding land is non-arable, so the homemade bread makes up a large part of peoples' average daily caloric intake. Watch the process unfold in John Wendle's short piece. ...

We Are What We Eat: Afghanistan

When you look at the map there is an area that was never touched by war. It's called the Wakhan Corridor. And at the end of it is a high altitude plateau that is very difficult to reach. Join photographer Matthieu Paley in the mountains of Afghanistan where no crops grow, the journey to get flour takes days, and goat eyes are on the menu.

Lost Treasures Of Afghanistan | National Geographic

Follows two interwoven quests for legendary treasures from Afghanistan's past. The discoverer of the "Bactrian Hoard," a remarkable cache of 20,000 ancient gold pieces uncovered just as the Soviets were invading, returns to Afghanistan to find out whether the treasure survived the ensuing 30 years of war. And an Afghan archaeologist sets out to prove his theory that a third 1,000-foot Buddha lies buried in Bamiyan near the two enormous Buddha statues destroyed by the Taliban....

Central Asia: The Bridge Across Forever - Tajikistan

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=bDuW9y-PZ5o&utm_source=Direct

Silk Route, the commercial highway of the world has been fundamental in bridging the gap between different civilisations and cultures. Both Central Asia and India have been witness to several warriors and conquerers and have also shared common roots of existence in many ways. The film 'The Bridge Across Forever' recalls different aspects of these relations in terms of history, culture, trade and commerce. The shared history and culture of these two regions is evident. Secularism, the very basic fabric of the Indian and the Tajik society is the guiding force of these two ancient friends. One of the bridges between Tajikistan and India has been the path that the Sufi saints like Amir Khusrau travelled through. The future of this relationship between Tajikistan and India is no longer on the horizon but now a bold reality.

Central Asia is the next big trending destination. Here’s why.

TRAVEL TO ASIA is dominated by a handful of big names. Japan and China, expat hubs like Chiang Mai and Bali, and the infamous backpacker’s strip of Khao San Road in Bangkok. But Kazakhstan, Uzbekistan, and other former Soviet republics that make up Central Asia are creeping up on the horizon as the next big destination everyone is going to be talking about and flocking to for their next holiday.

The rising tourism trend of the “Stans” makes perfect sense when you consider just how much they have to offer adventurous travelers. The region was home to the Silk Road, which functioned as a crossroads that moved people, goods, and philosophies between Europe and Asia. Unsurprisingly, this has led to many conflicts between ethnic, religious, and political groups over the years, but Central Asia has come out the other side as one of the most robust cultural destinations in the world. It’s only a matter of time before the tourists start flooding in, but for now, they’re relatively untouched by crowds. Here’s why Central Asia is on the rise and why you should make it your next big trip before the rest of the world catches on.
