Most of its habitats speak some Turkic language and the whole region are occupied with steppes and mountains. Most of the tourists visiting this region arrive in the capital and immediately book a tour of the mountains or countryside (especially in Kyrgyzstan).
All Central Asian countries are heavily carnivorous, yes there are some vegetarians in all Central Asian countries, but they are in the minority. This means if you are a vegetarian and surviving without meat, you will attract odd looks.
Now Central Asian countries are expanding their roots and offering best travelling options.
Let us introduce you to these amazing countries:
Kazakhstan: The world's largest landlocked nation, dominated by archetypal Central Asian steppe, is sparsely populated, with deep reserves of fossil fuels and sacks of striking wilderness for adventurers. Some popular cities and destinations in Kazakhstan are Astana (Capital city), Almaty, Shymkent, Aktau, Turkistan, Karaganda, Taraz, Altyn-Emel National Park and Lake Alakol.
Kyrgyzstan: Kyrgyzstan can be well defined by its natural beauty, supremely unspoilt mountains capes, stark stony ridges and rolling jailoos (summer meadows) are brought to life by semi-nomadic, yurt-dwelling shepherds. Country where you will find well-developed network of homestays and visa-free travel, and this is the reason behind, why this is the gateway of choice for many travellers in Central Asia. Some of the main cities and destinations in Kyrgyzstan are Bishkek (Capital city), Issyk-Kul (second largest mountain lake in the world), Karakol, Osh, Song Kol Lake, Ala Archa National Park, Kochkor and Cholpon-Ata.
Tajikistan: Tajikistan is truly off the beaten path, known for uneven mountains, popular for climbing and hiking. Some of the popular cities and destinations of Tajikistan are Dushanbe (the capital city), Khujand, Khorugh, Murghab, Karakul, Panjakent, Istaravshan, Hisor and Kulob.
Turkmenistan: A perfect blend of desert moonscapes and dry mountains, dotted with the ruins of great ancient civilizations, is generally an offbeat destination, but hypothetically very rewarding travel. Main destinations in Turkmenistan are Ashgabat (Capital city), Darvaza, Konye-Urgench, Mary, Turkmenbasy, Dasoguz, Turkmenabat, Awaza and Balkanabat.
Uzbekistan: A beautiful country known for its mosques, mausoleums and other sites linked to Silk Road is packed with amazing pool of cities and destinations such as Tashkent (Capital city), Bukhara, Samarkand, Khiva, Nukus, Urgench, Shahrisabz, Fergana, and Termez has way more than its fair share of culture and history.
