Overland Travel in Asia

Overland travel in Asia is roughly divided up in two commonly driven routes: the northern route to Russia, Mongolia, and Central Asia and the southern route to Iran, the subcontinent (South Asia) and Southeast Asia.

Drive from the taiga in Siberia and Mongolia’s empty steppe down to Central Asia. In Kyrgyzstan and Kazakhstan, old traditions and rich culture go hand in hand with mind-blowing landscapes that invite you to rough camp and go for a hike.

Don’t miss out on Iran’s famed sense of hospitality when you drive from the Aegean Coast in Turkey to Bangladesh’s flooded plains.

The Far East is a lesser visited overland-travel destination, which is a pity. Overlanding in South Korea and Japan is easy and fascinating, and we have written extensively about driving and hiking in both countries.
