The first thing to note about travel in Central Asia is that most areas, particularly towns and cities are more relaxed in their attitude to Islam than their neighbors to the south in Afghanistan and Pakistan. It is a Muslim zone, therefore it is important to be cautious in specific regions. While both men and women can wear shorts or T-shirts in the city, they should not wear T-shirts or sleeves that are long. However, anyone visiting active mosques should wear trousers that are below the knees and wear tops that cover the shoulders. A headscarf is also advised for women. On this trip, we will be traveling in remote locations seldom visited by tourists. The locals are modest in their attire and therefore you’re likely to feel more relaxed dressed in conservative clothes too.

The majority of the people adhere to Sunni Islam, with the minority of them following Russian Orthodox, Catholicism, Buddhism and Judaism.

Food and drink

The focus of this tour is soups and meats. The availability of vegetables can be difficult locate in remote areas or at higher elevations. However, there’s a lot of dried nuts and dried fruits that you can taste.

The choices for alcohol are limited to beer or vodka. Anyone looking to sample something else – such as Scotch or Gin should buy the item duty-free and take it along. Mixer drinks such as tonic water can be extremely difficult to locate, however.
