I used SRE for some awesome trekking in the Tian Shan. I wouldn't call it a complicated reservation, but there were quite a few specific requests and requirements, which they dealt with promptly and efficiently, telling me clearly what was not possible, and making happen what was possible. For those of you not lucky enough to be Visa-Free, they also provided an invaluable visa-support service. As their great website suggests, the company is perfectly geared and dedicated to providing all sorts of travelers with a brilliant Central Asian experience. And while not restricted to this they have a very good handle on adventure travel (get Andrey to take you Heli-Skiing in winter!). Evgenia and Andrey make an excellent team and are a joy to deal with. This is a superb new operation that makes all aspects of travel in Kyrgyzstan and surrounding areas that much easier and loads more fun!

I am an Australian and at relatively short notice I decided that I wanted to climb Pik Lenin (7134m).I was in Kyrgyzstan for about 3 weeks.
After a search of the internet I decided on Silk Road Explore.They were so helpful and patience with my overwhelming number of enquires.
My climb of Pik Lenin did not go as well as expected (I was not fit enough) and as a consequence I left the mountain early.i contacted Silk Road Explore and again at short notice they organised for me to go to Song Kol lake and to do some white water rafting.
I cannot rate Silk Route Explore highly enough particularly Evgenia.
If you visit this beautiful country it will be troublefree with this company- they really care!

Silk road explore organized an excellent trip to the Tien Shan Mountains. They are very helpfull. I had several questions about special needs (diat food) They reacted imediatly on every Mail i sent and made my trip a wonderfull and careless experience. I met them aftre my trip for a coffee. They are positiv minded and will do everything to make your trip as special as possible. Even with this personal tough, the proces are more than fair.

Silk Road Explore organized an excellent 2-week trip to Kyrgyzstan for us: trekking to Khan Tengri base camp and a few days' cultural tour. They responded promptly and helpfully to emails during the planning, and all the ground arrangements worked perfectly. The ground operator they recommended was very efficient, and our only criticism is that perhaps the cultural days were too hectic (but that was as much down to what we asked for as to the organization). I would recommend Silk Road Explore as a tour organizer: they are a young and dynamic company.
