Overland & Train

Turkmenistan is located on the great overland routes of the Silk road- there are 1000's of kilometres to be covered from Turkey to the Great Wall of China. An East-West drive across the entire country from Bukhara in Uzbekistan to the shores of the Caspian Sea can be done in about 4-5 days including visiting all the shrines and important sites along the way. Another great route for overlanders is the North-South route, crossing the Karakum desert by road from Ashgabat to Kunya Urgench and Khiva. Many of our itineraries follow along these routes and can be customised to your needs.
Turkmenistan Overland
Sample itineraries
  The Trans-Turkestan Railway Trek - Beijing to Istanbul
The railway routes crossing the Silk Road cities remain some of the most fascinating railway routes in the world, despite irregular schedules. With two new routes opened between Serags in southern Turkmenistan and the route between Almaty and Urumchi, Turkmenistan has the beginning of a Trans-Turkestan Railway linking China and Europe. A further historically important link is the Trans-Caspian Railway connecting Bukhara and the Caspian Sea along the paths of Central Asians great explorers. All told this route still is an almost 48 hour ride but offers the traveller an unforgettable experience through some of the worlds most remarkable overlooked territory.
