Backpacking in Central Asia, once part of the Soviet Union, should be a no brainer for the adventurous traveler among us. It seems like the majority of people in the Western world view this region as being dangerous.
The countries all end with “Stan” which means “land of…”. I loved every minute of traveling in the Stans. I literally fell in love with the charming bazaars, the incredible hospitable people, sleeping in remote Yurtstays and enjoying the breathtaking mountain scenery.
I tried my best to capture as much as authentic footage as possible in order to honor the countries with this shortfilm. I hope you're gonna enjoy Part I & II: Tajikistan & Kyrgyzstan.
