The trip was exploratory in nature, and aimed to open up new climbing areas, summit virgin peaks, and increase the awareness for british exploration, and help to bring tourism to a struggling area of the world.

The great silk road

The Great Silk Road - Trade caravan routes from India and China to Central Asia went across the mountain passes of Pamir and Tien-Shan, constituting just a part of the Great Silk Road - the trade road system of antiquity and the Middle Ages. New cities were disappearing and arising on its route, but the Great Silk Road was staying put over the centuries. Since ancient times three branches of the Great Silk Road went across the territory of modern Kyrgyzstan. Caravans were often joined by poets, writers, philosophers and pilgrims, who brought their traditions, culture and religions.
