TRAVEL NEWS: Discover the Mystery and Majesty at The Heart of the Silk Road

The History Channel created a marvelous series in 2012 called “Mankind: The History of All of Us.” This video segment profiles the significance of the ancient Silk Road, a trade route of over 3,000 miles that ran from China to Rome. Along the way the 5 Central Asian “Stans” became essential in the trade of the most valued commodity of all: silk. Kazakhstan, Kyrgyzstan, Uzbekistan, Tajikistan and Turkmenistan (near the Iranian border) each played a unique and essential role in the creation of the mystery and majesty of the Silk Road.

You can explore both the ancient and the modern splendor of these countries on the upcoming cultural immersion tour offered by Original World, The Heart of the Great Silk Road, which departs twice in 2014, from April 24/25-May 15 and September 11/12 – Oct 3.
