Leg 3 takes us from Istanbul to Bukhara – 5,600km along the old Silk Road routes.

  • The third leg, 5,600km, takes us from Istanbul, along the Black Sea coast (in hope of some better weather!) into mountainous Georgia and Armenia. We then intend to head through Iran and Turkmenistan, until we reach Bukhara in Uzbekistan, an ancient city steeped in history as an intellectual and trading centre along the Silk Roads.
