Along the Silk RoadToday a Silk Road trip reveals arching blue-tiled mosques; tall minarets constructed of baked mud brick woven into fabulous patterns; bountiful piles of vivid handwoven carpets; women in brilliant dresses and men in traditional felt headgear, as well as the steadily modernizing countries of Central Asia and Western China.

The High Silk RoadA particularly challenging branch of the Silk Road went up and over the Pamir Mountains, some of the most rugged and beautiful on Earth, soaring upward where the Himalayas, the Tien Shan and the Hindu Kush meet. Travelers have the opportunity to retrace this route (sometimes called “The Silk Road Less Traveled”) each year on MIR’s Pamir Highway & Across Fabled Frontiers small group tour.
