ALTERNATIVE ROUTE

If there are any political problems during our Central Asia travel that may impede our tour they are most likely to occur in Iran and/or Pakistan. If complications do occur we would avoid certain areas or take a more northerly route through the Stan’s, Turkmenistan, Uzbekistan, Tajikistan, Kyrgyzstan and China to reach Southeast Asia.

We have not used this alternate route in the past so it is unlikely that we will have to on your expedition, but please be aware that it is a possibility. Sometimes our routes within certain countries have to be altered due to political unrest, natural disasters, road works, etc. so please be aware that we may have to alter routes occasionally.

If problems arise in any other areas along the route we travel there are always alternatives.

 

London to Sydney

DAY 1 – 14, EUROPE

Our expedition begins in Hammersmith, London, and after a short ferry crossing over the English Channel we are in France and on the European continent. Our first 2 days are spent driving through France, Belgium and Luxembourg before arriving in Germany where we visit the sobering WWII concentration camp of Dachau.

We continue on to Salzburg in Austria, birthplace of Mozart, where you have a day to explore this beautiful city or take a cable-car up a nearby mountain affording stunning views over the Austrian Alps.

In Hungary we start to notice a change as Western Europe begins to fade. A goulash in Budapest is a tasty treat on a day out exploring the city’s wonderful architecture and a boat trip on the Danube River is a great way to take it all in.

In Romania, we visit Dracula’s Castle, perched high in the Transylvanian mountains before heading down to the capital Bucharest where you can visit the world’s second largest building – the Romanian Parliament House.

In Bulgaria, we camp near the stunning town of Veliko Tarnovo where you can visit the impressive Tsaravets Fortress before we cross over the rolling green foothills of the Balkans heading for Turkey.

DAY 13 – 24, TURKEY

Istanbul, the city that separates Europe from Asia has it all, and you will revel in the history and culture it offers. Take a boat trip up the Bosphorus, marvel at the Aya Sofya and explore the opulent Topkapi Palace. At the end of the day soak your aches away in the Turkish baths and tantalise your taste buds with Turkish delights!

The battlefields of Gallipoli are our next destination where we pay tribute to the thousands of Aussies, Kiwis, Brits and Turks who lost their lives here in 1915. A truly moving experience.

Historic Troy is an interesting stop on our way down the Turquoise coast to the great Roman ruins of Ephesus. Here we camp on the beach and have a day to explore the ruins and enjoy the sunshine.

Pamukkale presents us with a dazzling white mountainside of natural terrace pools where we get to spend the afternoon soaking ourselves or exploring the ancient Byzantine city of Hierapolis.

Inland on the plateau we reach the fairy-tale wonderland of Cappadocia with spectacular canyons, ancient caves and underground cities carved into the geologically diverse land. Start your day with an amazing hot-air balloon ride and finish it off at a raucous night of belly dancing!

Close to the Black Sea we visit the awe-inspiring Sumela Monastery and marvel at the Byzantine frescoes in an amazing cliff-face setting before continuing along the coast towards Georgia.

DAY 25 – 37, GEORGIA & ARMENIA

Our first stop in Georgia is at the almost completely intact Roman fortress of Gonio with its 18 magnificent towers and ancient bath-house.

Kutaisi is Georgia’s second city and one of the world’s most ancient. Here you can explore the Bagrati Cathedral, the History Museum and the Old Jewish district.

Close by and well worth a few hours is Sataplia Nature Reserve, home to magnificent caves and the world’s largest collection of dinosaur tracks.

Vardzia is a beautiful cliff-side cave monastery site that we visit for a step back in time and a delicious trout lunch next to the river.

We now head for Armenia and their capital city Yerevan where you have a couple of days to explore the museums, churches, markets and restaurants that make Armenia such a delight.

On our journey towards the mountains dotted with ancient caravanserais we visit the monastery of Khor Virap with it’s wonderful location beneath Mt. Ararat before heading to the turquoise waters of Lake Sevan where we bush-camp on the lakeshore.

Winding our way north through the breathtaking Debed Gorge our last stop in Armenia is at the fabulously located Haghpat Monastery.

Back in Georgia we arrive at Tbilisi, the beating heart of the country where we have a day or two to wander the cobbled streets of the old town, visit the numerous historical churches, museums and fortresses and of course indulge in fine Georgian cuisine.

A trip to Georgia would not be complete without a trip up the Military Highway to the beautifully located town of Kazbegi situated within a stunning mountain range close to the Russian border. Hiking is the most popular activity here and the hour long trek up to the spectacular monastery is well worth the effort as too is the overnight trek to the glacier.

DAY 38 – 41, AZERBAIJAN

Our first stop is at Sheki, a lovely town nestled in a beautifully forested valley. The town was an important stop on the ancient Silk Route and is also home to the beautiful Khan Palace and a wonderful old caravanserai.

The cosmopolitan capital of Baku is an oil-rich city and exploring the city’s old town filled with mosques, museums, galleries and palaces is a great day out.

Hugging the Caspian Sea, one of the world’s largest bodies of fresh-water, we visit the ancient Gobustan petroglyphs and bizarre mud volcanoes on our way south to the Iranian border.

DAY 42 – 53, IRAN

It is unlikely we will encounter a friendlier, more welcoming country on our entire journey so enjoy the Iranian hospitality!

Opposite to the desert-like picture most people have of Iran our first stop is a beautiful village tucked away in verdant green mountains around the Caspian Sea. Masuleh is a great introduction to Iran where it is possible to explore the area’s natural beauty on foot.

In Tehran, we have a day to explore the capital’s numerous attractions and get to grips with how modern Iran actually is.

Crossing the Iranian plateau we now head for Esfahan, Iran’s masterpiece. The impressive city square is full of intricately decorated mosaic Mosques, leisurely tea-shops and lavish carpet emporiums. Plenty of bargains can be found in the myriad of bazaars that lead off from the square and the city’s gorgeous bridges deserve all the time you can spare.

The Zagros mountains provide a stunning backdrop on our trip to the intriguing ruins of Persepolis. Once the summer capital of the Persian Empire, this is the site where Alexander the Great famously conquered the Persian armies stronghold.

We continue to the small town of Yazd with its unique wind-towers, picturesque Mosques and lively Persian souks before heading north, desert camping on our way to the Turkmenistan border.

DAY 54 – 57, TURKMENISTAN

The capital city Ashgabat is our first stop where it seems the current president is using the country’s wealth to build an entire city out of white marble – you have to see it to believe it! Bring your sunglasses as exploring the city’s monuments and palaces is a brilliant experience.

Close by and worth a visit is Geok-Depe, site of the Turkmen’s last stand against the Russians, and today home to the futuristic Saparmurat Hajji Mosque which also contains the mausoleum of the eccentric ex-president Niyazov.

Heading north into the blistering heat of the Karakum (black sand) desert we camp in the dunes and have the opportunity to take a 2 hour walk to the unusual Darvaza Gas Craters. More commonly referred to as the ‘Gates of Hell’ this burning crater makes for a surreal desert experience and is best viewed at night.

Leaving the harsh desert behind our last stop is at Konye-Urgench, beautiful ancient ruins that were once the centre of the Islamic world.

DAY 58 – 64, UZBEKISTAN

The perfectly preserved world heritage town of Khiva is our first stop here where we have time to explore the blue-tiled Mosques, ancient mausoleums, glorious palaces, sky-high minarets and thriving bazaars that make this town a firm favourite.

We continue to Bukhara, Central Asia’s holiest city where it is possible to get a glimpse into the past by viewing the architectural preserve of the royal fortress and vast market complex.

Our journey now takes us through the Kyzylkum (red sand) desert where we have a chance of spotting the Uzbek nomads before arriving at the Silk Route city of Samarkand. This city of domes and minarets has some fantastic attractions including the beautiful Registan, Guri Amir Mausoleum and Bibi-Khanym Mosque.

DAY 65 – 73, TAJIKISTAN

Our first couple of days in this mountainous country are spent at the beautiful lake Iskandar Kul where you have the chance to enjoy some of Central Asia’s most beautiful scenery.

With a cool backdrop of mountains, lazy tree-lined avenues and pastel-hued neoclassical buildings, we move on to Dushanbe, Central Asia’s best-looking capital.

Our journey east now takes us to an area that has been off-limits to travellers until recently – the Pamir Highway. Regarded as one of the world’s most scenic drives we now wind our way along this extremely remote high-altitude road and take in the mountain scenery of a region populated by yurts and yaks and studded with deep-blue lakes. This is wild-camping at its best!

DAY 74 – 82, KYRGYZSTAN

This is a land of magnificent mountains and ice-blue lakes and we spend our first couple of days making our way through fantastic scenery and camping in the valleys.

A winding dirt track takes us up to the alpine lake Song-Kol where we get our first experience of staying in a yurt with a nomadic tribe who set up camp here every summer on the green pastures surrounding the lake. Horse riding, hiking and fishing are popular activities in this remote area.

We now head for the beautiful lake Issyk-Kol, the world’s second largest alpine lake. Working our way around the lake we spend a couple of days at Jeti Oguz where you have the option of trekking into the lush surrounding mountains to explore the area’s natural beauty.

Bizarre Bishkek is the capital where you can sing Karaoke at a street stall, beat yourself with a birch branch at the local baths and do vodka shots at the expat's bar.

DAY 83 – 88, KAZAKHSTAN

Our first day here is spent visiting bronze-age petroglyphs in a lushly vegetated canyon at Tamgaly.

Just south of Almaty we spend a day in the mountainous Ile-Alatau National Park where you have the opportunity to do a day trek into the park in search of brown bears, porcupines and marmots.

Almaty is a modern city with great museums and wonderful restaurants but should you wish to escape the rat-race then take the popular cable-car up to the top of a nearby hill for a fantastic view over the region.

The desert terrain of eastern Kazakhstan opens up into the beautiful fairy-tale rock formations of the Charyn Canyon National Park and it is here we spend our last couple of days camping, enjoying nature and taking advantage of the canyon hiking and rafting options on offer.

DAY 89 – 107, CHINA & TIBET

We enter China via a remote western border and spend our first few days camping on the fringes of the Taklamakan and Gobi Deserts studded with the odd emerald lake.

Officially the hottest place in China, the oasis town of Turpan is a welcome break where you have the chance to visit a traditional Uyghur Village as well as the crumbling remains of the ancient city Jiaohe.

In Dunhuang, we find the amazing Buddhist caves of Mogao where a few hours can be enjoyed marvelling at hundreds of giant statues of Buddha, vibrant murals and multi-tiered temples.

We now climb up onto the Tibetan plateau and spend a few nights bush camping at high altitude before reaching the spiritual home of Tibet, Lhasa. Crowned by the Potala Palace, home of the Dalai Lamas, this is Tibet’s holiest shrine and well worth exploring. The golden roofed Jokhang Temple is also a spectacular sight as is Norbulingka, the former summer palace of the Dalai Lama.

From Lhasa we travel along one of the world’s most spectacular roads hugging the shores of lake Yamdrok and visiting the distinctly Tibetan town of Gyantse where the Pelkhor Chode monastery houses Tibet’s largest stupa with 9 tiers, 108 chapels and excellent murals.

Joining up with the Friendship Highway we continue on to Shigatse where you have the chance to visit the marvellous Tashilhunpo Monastery.

Our last stop in the fabulous land of Tibet is definitely our ‘biggest’ reason to stop, Mt Everest! A snaking track makes it possible for us to drive up to base camp and the Tibetan side offers us a stunning view of the north face. You can also send a letter from the world’s highest post box and visit the world’s highest Buddhist monastery.

Keep an eye out for rare Tibetan macaque monkeys as we descend towards Nepal.

DAY 108 – 118, NEPAL

Our first stop in Nepal is at the Last Resort where you will have a chance to bungee-jump from a suspension bridge far above a raging river or even brave the world’s highest bridge swing, a 5-second free fall that will leave you speechless!

Kathmandu, where travellers swap stories in the lively bars and the Everest Steak House serves up delicious fillets of beef. The old town is steeped in history and the smell of incense wafts through the air as you marvel at the Pagodas and Temples adorning the squares. The scenic flight over Mt Everest is a must-do.

Heading west we reach Pokhara at the foothills of the Himalayas. This mellow little town is situated around a beautiful sheltered lake and surrounded by snow-capped mountains. A great place to relax and/or gear up for a trek into the stunning Annapurna range.

At our last stop, you have the option of exploring Bardia National Park on foot or even on elephant back allowing you to get up close to the rhinos, sloth bears and tigers that inhabit the area.

DAY 119 – 134, INDIA

Delhi is the ultimate in hustle and bustle and facing the unrelenting throng of people is an experience you won’t forget in a hurry. Braving the city traffic has many rewards with great textile markets, wonderful monuments, imposing forts and amazing temples.

Our next destination is India’s most iconic site – the Taj Mahal. This monument to love is spectacular and will keep your camera clicking all day.

Varanasi is on the banks of the Ganges River where you have the option of an early morning boat trip that will definitely open your eyes. You will notice animal and human carcasses floating by as the multitudes flock down to this Holy river to wash away their sins each morning. On shore the funeral pyres known as ‘Ghats’ burn away all day and night as Holy men chant prayers. An unbelievable sight!

We now head into the remote areas of northeast India and spend a couple of days in Manas national Park where you have the option to explore the jungle which is inhabited by a multitude of animals including tigers, panthers, rhinoceros, leopards, elephants and sloth bears.

This mountainous region offers scenic drives as we head towards Myanmar and spend our last day in the pleasant town Imphal where we have time to visit the impressive Kangla Fort.

DAY 135 – 148, MYANMAR (Burma)

Having only recently opened their borders to overland tourism Myanmar is fresh and exciting. Our first few days are spent driving on rough tracks through remote areas before arriving in Mandalay where we get our first experience of Burmese city life. This is the last royal city in Burma and a day can easily be spent exploring the numerous pagodas and palaces around town.

The plains of Bagan are our next stop where thousands of pagodas of all shapes and sizes adorn the landscape best explored by bicycle and viewed from hot-air balloons.

At Inle Lake a day’s boating will get you to see the unique leg-rowing fishermen using baskets to catch their fish. The lake is also inhabited by locals and their stilted villages can be visited for a taste of their traditional way of life.

We continue south to Yangon where the gilded Shwedagon Pagoda rises above the city and creates an amazing skyline above Myanmar’s commercial hub.

Travelling via Bago and the region’s numerous giant Buddha’s we arrive at Mt Kyaiktiyo, our last stop in Burma. The mountain is famous for its huge gilded rock precariously balancing on a strand of Buddha’s hair!

DAY 149 – 161, NORTHERN THAILAND & LAOS

Chiang Mai is one of Thailand’s most beautiful towns in the mountainous northern region. Explore elaborate temples within the old city walls and end the day with a Mai-Tai cocktail down on bar street.

Crossing into Laos we visit the extremely relaxed town of Luang Namtha and then you have the option to take boat trip through spectacular mountain scenery down to Luang Prabang. This architectural wonder is a must see, full of temples and tradition as well as wonderful markets.

Vang Vieng is our next stop and is a vibey little town set amongst awesome natural beauty. Outdoor activities abound with caving, climbing, kayaking and tubing being popular outings.

The amazing Kong Lo caves are an interesting stop as we head south. Other-worldly stalactites, spooky limestone formations, and ceilings over 300 feet tall make this flooded cave a highlight in Laos and is best explored by boat.

DAY 162 – 173, VIETNAM

Please Note: Vietnam and Cambodia do not allow foreign vehicles to enter so this section of the expedition will be conducted on local transport and you will meet back up with the Madventure truck in Bangkok.

Our first stop in Vietnam is the old capital, Hue, home to the splendid tombs of the Nguyen emperors as well as beautiful pagodas and the remains of the old citadel.

The picturesque river town of Hoi An is well worth exploring with its amazing Vietnamese architecture and nearby villages specialising in pottery and wood-carvings. The cuisine here is excellent.

Further south we encounter the emerald waters and unspoilt beaches around Nha Trang and Mui Ne, perfect for spending the days sunbathing and the evenings out partying!

Ho Chi Minh City (formerly Saigon) has many highlights but the War Remnants Museum is surely the most sobering. Get a guide and learn all about the atrocities committed during the futile Vietnam war. The Reunification Palace and Notre-Dame Cathedral are also worth a visit and the Mekong Delta day tour is highly recommended.

From HCMC it is also possible to take a trip to the Cu Chi Tunnels, an area with an elaborate underground network that housed thousands during the war.

DAY 174 – 179, CAMBODIA

Please note: Cambodia does not allow foreign vehicles to enter so this section of the expedition will be conducted on local transport and you will meet back up with the Madventure truck in Bangkok.

Phnom Penh is a compact little town spectacularly located on the confluence of three rivers. The Royal Palaces and Silver Pagoda are great day outings, and the sobering ‘Killing Fields’ and Tuol Sleng Museum are a stark reminder of this country’s recent history under the brutal regime of Pol Pot.

Next stop is one of the most inspiring sites in the world – Angkor Wat. These temples are monumental constructions, the largest religious buildings in the world. The intricacy of the carvings is incredible and the site is well worth 2 days exploration.

DAY 180 – 189, THAILAND

Bangkok has its fair share of Palaces and Pagodas but it is surely most infamous for its sex shows and lady-boys, so expect the unexpected! From Bangkok, you also have the opportunity to visit the ‘Bridge on the River Kwai’ on a day tour and get a good insight into what really happened here during the war.

Further south we catch a ferry over to the tropical island of Ko Samui. Here you can either put your feet up for a few days or you have the option of easily visiting the smaller islands of Ko Pha-Ngan and Ko Tao. The islands have some of the world’s finest beaches and the numerous great dive spots will take you into a vibrant underwater paradise filled with exotic fish and coral gardens.

DAY 190 – 197, MALAYSIA & SINGAPORE

Georgetown has a rich history and is a great introduction to this wonderfully diverse country. Visit the Fatt Tze Mansion and Kapitan Keling Mosque, and then sample some of the unique Malaysian street food on offer.

Next we visit the futuristic city of Kuala Lumpur with the Islamic-style Petronas Towers dominating the city’s skyline. Chinatown market is a remnant of the past and contrasts the initial feel of the place. You will even find a British colonial atmosphere lingering amongst some of the architecture and some interesting museums hold the city’s history within their doors.

Further south we visit the port town of Melaka where we have the time to visit the maritime museums and discover what the place was like 400 years ago when it was an important stop on the spice route.

Singapore is our last stop on the Asian continent and is a distinctly clean and modern island. With an abundance of fine dining options and shopping malls, this is the place to treat yourself before flying to Indonesia. It is also here that you will say goodbye to your Madventure expedition vehicle as we will be using local transport in Indonesia.

From Singapore, you now fly to Yogyakarta. Flights are not included in the expedition price so budget approximately £60 for this flight.

DAY 198 – 203, INDONESIA

We fly into Yogyakarta on the island of Java, an artistic town where you can explore the monument of Borobudur, a gem in this area.

An overnight bus and a short ferry ride see us arrive in Bali, a small island famous for its beautiful beaches and bountiful nightlife, a wonderful last taste of Asia before we head to Australia.

From Bali you now fly to Darwin. Flights are not included in the expedition price so budget approximately £100 for this flight.

DAY 204 – 217, AUSTRALIA

We meet our Australian expedition vehicle in Darwin in the Northern Territory. This small town has some great pubs and is a good introduction to the outback.

Kakadu National Park is close by and is a marvel of wildlife and aboriginal rock art. The park is great for walking with a variety of landscapes and it is probably here that we get to see our first kangaroo. The jumping crocodile tour will get you up close and personal with some of Australia’s most feared residents – saltwater crocs!

Katherine gorge is also a beautiful sight where 13 gorges are separated by rapids offering great boat trips through fantastic scenery.

On our route south we have a chance to wet our whistles at NT’s oldest bar, the Daly Waters Pub. This is a real Aussie outback hangout where you are bound to bump into a character or two.

Our desert journey south is broken up by the Devils Marbles, huge boulders naturally formed and piled up in the middle of nowhere.

Basing ourselves in Alice Springs you now have the option to visit Australia’s icon – Uluru (Ayers Rock). As the world’s biggest monolith, Uluru is an awesome spectacle, as are the nearby smaller collection of red rocks known as the Olgas.

 

Further south we visit the small opal mining town of Coober Pedy where a day’s outing will take you underground and show you the old prospectors way of life and a visit to the Kangaroo Rescue Sanctuary will ensure you get a feel for these amazing marsupials.

We continue into the Blue Mountains and camp near the quaint town of Katoomba where you get to explore the areas fantastic scenery by means of the world’s steepest railway, gondolas over gorges and bush-walks.

Arriving in Sydney the Opera House, Harbor Bridge and Bondi Beach make this a great end to an unforgettable expedition – LONDON TO SYDNEY OVERLAND!
