Central Asia offers a stunning range of options in terms of culture and scenery. One of the most closed countries in the world, with even fewer tourists every year than North Korea, Turkmenistan is a notoriously difficult country to visit, and therefore one of the most important for YPT! From our office in Almaty, we also organize tours through the archaeological treasures of Uzbekistan and the mountains and lakes of Kyrgyzstan, and hey, why not try to see a rocket launch from the Baikonur Cosmodrome in Kazakhstan. One also not very well kept secret is that there are certain other locations we travel to in Central Asia, but you’ll need to send us an email to find out!
