Paul Craven has been with Steppes Travel for 16 years and true 'Travel Beyond the Ordinary' is what he loves most - he is in his element when trekking through remote landscapes, exploring hidden backstreets and generally getting off the beaten track and setting foot where few have done before.
His knowledge of border crossings and their complications would be hard to beat and many of the wonderful trips he prepares for our clients can combine 4 or 5 countries over several months. During his extensive travels Paul has also built up an interesting and often amusing photo gallery of the 'world's worst toilets'!
Paul can tailor-make your holiday to your exact requirements; be it a family adventure, a luxury holiday, a multi-country trip or venturing off the beaten track.
Beginning to reappear on the global map after some torrid internal struggles, Tajikistan has some excellent trekking in the beautiful Pamir Mountains and interesting sites for those seeking soft cultural adventures. The Tajik people have a rich tradition of hospitality; and meeting them is sure to enhance your understanding of their way of life.
Both Alexander the Great and Marco Polo travelled through the region and, with the destruction of the Bamiyan statues in Afghanistan, the 19m high Tajik Buddha is the largest Buddhist statue in Central Asia.
