Our photography tour of Kazakhstan and Kyrgyzstan and the Great Silk Road will take place in September 2025 with Mehmet Ozbalci. Kazakhstan and Kyrgyzstan are two beautiful Central Asian nomadic countries that are part of the Great Silk Road, the network of ancient trade routes between China and the Mediterranean. Despite their beauty, culture, history and multitude of photographic opportunities, they are yet to be fully discovered by photographers. Join Mehmet in Central Asia, which he knows intimately, having led a dozen tours to the region already. He will help you discover these countries with your camera and ensure you return with images to treasure.

The Great Silk Road - Kazakhstan and Kyrgyzstan Photography Tour

Kazakhstan and Kyrgyzstan Photography Tour - The Great Silk Road
Many people think that Kazakhstan consists of steppes and not much else. A great part of the country is covered with steppes, but it also features breathtaking views over snow-capped mountains and it is known for its photogenic landsapes. The country has the 9th largest territory in the world, yet the population numbers only 20 million. Kazakhstan has many natural resources and is a wealthy, prosperous and peaceful country in Central Asia.

Kyrgyzstan is located right at the heart of Central Asia and it has a reputation for being the country of mountains and alpine lakes. It is surrounded by snow-capped mountains and has one of the largest alpine lakes in the world, Issyk Kul Lake. Kyrgyzstan lies within the Tien Shan and Pamir mountain ranges. It is believed that the country has been formed by the 40 clans of Manas, a legendary hero who united forty regional tribes. The name Kyrgyzstan means 'country of 40 tribes'. Kyrgyzstan is prosperous with plentiful natural resources.
