The first thing to say about traveling through Central Asia is that most areas, specifically the towns and cities have a much more laid-back attitude to Islam than their neighboring areas to the south in Afghanistan and Pakistan. It is a Muslim area , and it’s essential to be careful when visiting certain places. Both women and men are allowed to wear shorts and T-shirts in urban areas, they should not wear long sleeves or T-shirts. Anyone who visits active mosques should wear trousers that are below the knees and wear tops which cover shoulders. The use of a head scarf is advised for females. The trip takes us to remote areas that aren’t typically frequented by tourists. The locals wear modest clothing, so it is highly likely that you’ll feel more at ease in conservative attire.

The majority of people are followers of Sunni Islam. A small proportion of people are believers of Russian Orthodox, Catholicism and Buddhism.
