Kazakhstan Adventure

Beginning in the futuristic cityscapes of Nur-Sultan (until recently, Astana), join us on this exploration from mighty Kazakhstan to mountainous Kyrgyzstan. From the otherworldly scenery of the Boszhira Valley to the ancient city of Turkistan, the Silk Road ruins of Otrar, and the culturally rich Almaty, the sights along the way are unlike anywhere else on earth.
