Cycle the Nuratau Mountains in Uzbekistan
Cycle the mountain gorges, desert oases, and vast desert steppes of Uzbekistan on a two-wheeled odyssey with Grasshopper Adventures. It’s home to ancient cities with UNESCO-protected cultural and architectural legacies that once formed key stops on the Silk Road. Departing Tashkent, the country’s capital, embark on ascents up the Nuratau Mountains, where slopes are seasonally dotted with wild tulips. Venture beyond the Pistalitau and Nuratau ridges to arrive at the Sob gorge, where a high-pass climb in the shadow of the majestic Gaukum peak awaits. Then, following the path of the Urganchy River, you’ll arrive at Shakhrisabz, the birthplace of Tamerlane, one of Central Asia’s fiercest and most famous conquerors. End with a ride through the windswept, red-sand desert of Kyzylkum, one of the largest in the world.
