Traversing the Silk Road has never been so easy. The physical dangers of crossing the world's largest deserts and mountains - thirst, heat, cold, altitude sickness, avalanches, snow storms, snow blindness - were rivaled only by the robbers, thieves and slavers encountered on the way. Merchants would thus gain safety in numbers, which often go at night to avoid the heat, in caravans of up to 1,000 camels. Remote caravanserais dotted the route at about 25 km intervals, the average daily distance traveled, and provided living quarters under the stars, stables for the animals and secure storage for valuable cargo. Caravanserais large city grew luxuriantly points of transit, if the goods to be changed owners, fresh animals were procured and guides, mercenaries and craftsmen were hired resident.

The two main routes were from Kashgar (for near was the Stone Tower, site of the largest transfer of goods in the region) over the Fergana Valley or Balkh, Samarkand or alternatively skirted the northern Tian Shan by Dzungarian Gap to Tashkent . Routes to the west and went to Bukhara and Merv then divided west to Persia and the Mediterranean Sea, south of Kabul and India, and north to Gurganj and the Volga. Routes have been carefully chosen so that for the time of year, snow, conditions of passports, political considerations and the regional differences in the tax rates, piracy, or both. The fragile threads of the Silk Road were changed forever, and losing weight at the mercy of history. Changed roles and lines, as dealers by a motley crew of diplomats, invaders, refugees, pilgrims and proselytizers way to outrageous "new countries had joined.
