Map of Turkmenistan (scale 1:1,350,000), Tajikistan and Kyrgyzstan (scale 1:1,100,000) in Central Asia, published by ITMB. Terrain mapping, index of cities. This detailed map includes street plans of the capitals Ashgabat, Dushanbe and Bishkek.
The two Central Asian countries of Kyrgyzstan and Tajikistan are rapidly developing a touristic market and we feel that the world needs a good map to reflect their growing importance.
The two ‘stans were part of the Soviet empire that fell apart in 1990, creating a dozen new countries. This double-sided map covers Kyrgyzstan on one side, with an inset map of its capital, Bishkek. The main attractions are Osh and Suyab, both ancient market centres on the Silk Road, and Lake Issyk-Kul, the world’s second largest alpine lake.
The reverse side concentrates on Tajikistan mountainous country just west of the Himalayas, with an inset of its capital, Dushanbe. Both of these countries should be considered ‘adventure’ destinations.
