Where we are going there are no easy roads, so be prepared to weather some hardships. You'll encounter cranky commissars, vodka-and-tea-fueled escapades, baking sun and withering cold, local cuisines and frantic passages through chaotic border crossings. Sample liquors of questionable origin and experience rock slides. Handle the likelihood of some brief nudity from your fellow adventurers, and as much dust & sand as you'd care to take home in your socks. All in the company of like-minded folk and some incredibly hospitable locals.

You will find no greater thrill or sense of satisfaction than pulling up to the finish of The Central Asia Rally in Bishkek, capital of Kyrgyzstan. After completing the route of the Central Asia Rally, you will have traversed seemingly endless desert roads, struggled crossing mountain passes and manhandled your vehicle down washed-out roads. You will have shared an adventure with your fellow participants few can hope to rival. With new friends and new tales to tell this is an experience that will live on for the rest of your life.

The Central Asia Rally is a once-in-a-lifetime adventure and it's easy to get involved right now!
