Extreme & Expedition

Central Asia has fantastic climbing, and some seriously challengeing off-road routings in it's desert areas. The Torugart pass and the mountaineous routings of western Kyrgyzstan and the remoter areas of the Kopetdag Mountain range have fascinating off-road treks for cyclists and motorcyclists. Other extreme sports such as paragliding and sky-diving have tremendous potential, but there is little supportive infrastructure.

The Pamirs and Tien Shan mountain ranges boast some of the Worlds highest peaks with Samani (Communism), Lenin and Khan Tengri in first place, all of which are regularly climbed by international expeditions and individual climbers.

The most interesting off-road routings are certainly in Turkmenistan's Karakum and Uzbekistan's Kyzylkum, both of which have to be taken very seriously, since water and food availability is very limited, maps inaccuarate and infrastructure practicacly non-existent.
