  • Silk Road Mountain Race

    After crossing the Ak-Sai river, riders will travel north and then east instead of heading towards Naryn as they did last year. They ride further into the wilderness for what is the longest new section of route. They will then follow the Chinese border via a long forgotten road that is now only used by the few hunting camps and army bases that are the only marks of human civilisation out here. Expect stunning views of the Dankova massif to the south. This area is as spectacular as it is desolate and remote. This whole valley is very exposed with a distinct possibility of wind and difficult weather conditions. There is very little shelter. If you do need to seek refuge, the storm drains under the road can provide some protection from the elements.
