​Central Asia is defined as a group of nations—Uzbekistan, Tajikistan, Azerbaijan, Kyrgyzstan, Kazakhstan, Turkmenistan and Afghanistan—sandwiched between Caspian Sea and Mongolia. These nations have a rugged but beautiful terrain.

​Some of the cities are modern marvels but they also have incredible historical values. Here are six Central Asian countries you must check out

​1. Azerbaijan

​Capital city of Baku, is home to UNESCO World Heritage Site of the Walled City as well as Baku F1 Grand Prix, making Azerbaijan a unique destination that straddles the past and the present

​2. Uzbekistan

​India has old connections to Uzbek cities of Samarkand and Tashkent. Apart from being part of the legendary Silk Route, these cities are a hub of history and culture making them a must-visit.

​3. Kazakhstan

​Step out of Kazakhstan’s biggest metropolitan, Almaty to discover the beauty of the Steppes. The Central Asian grasslands is speckled with lakes and wildlife, and the locals are generous and hospitable.

​4. Turkmenistan

​This nation is off-the-beaten-track even for Central Asia, where desserts and barren mountains bear witness to the ruins of ancient civilizations.

​5. Tajikistan

​Home to the ‘roof of the world’, Pamir Mountains, Tajikistan is filled with breathtaking views. A comparatively poorer nation to its neighbours, the country makes up with its people and gorgeous terrain.

​6. Kyrgyzstan
