Silk Road Sojourn

Each week, the Travel team at the Columbus Dispatch focuses on a new and interesting travel program to spotlight in the newspaper’s Sunday travel column.

Stops include the oasis city of Yarkand and an overnight near Tash Rabat, a 15th-century stone caravanserai in Kyrgyzstan. Guests will also skirt the Taklamakan Desert on camels, learn to set up a yurt and visit blue-tiled mosques and madrasahs in Uzbekistan.
