Almost everyone has heard of the ecological disaster of the Aral Sea, which is drying up from year to year, creating enormous problems not only for people living in nearby areas, for example, in Muynak, which will be visited in this program, but also for the whole globe. It is located in the Autonomous Republic of Karakalpakstan, which makes up 33% of the territory of Uzbekistan. The capital of this republic is Nukus, which is very famous thanks to the world famous museum, which houses a collection of Russian and Soviet avant-garde art. This museum has the second largest collection of Russian and Soviet avant-garde art in the world and is known as the Louvre in the Desert. For ideological reasons, this art was banned by the Soviet government. You will also have some experience of living in the desert, spending the night in a yurt and a small hike in the desert under the guidance of qualified guides who will help you overcome the distance on trained camels. The rest of this route is a classic tour that includes the Ferghana Valley, which from time immemorial has been known for the best horses, green gardens and beautiful mountains. The tour includes a visit to the southern part of the country, a city called Termez. Termez is a great place to explore the mysteries of ancient Buddhist traditions and culture of the Kushan period. Our road will also pass through Shakhrisabz, the small city where Tamerlan was born. After your return to Tashkent, we will take you to a mountain resort near Charvak Lake and Chimgan Mountains, a great way to relax after a long trip. All the places you visit are unique and differ from one to another. Our route will begin in the capital of Uzbekistan - Tashkent, a city of wide boulevards, green parks and easy and affordable nightlife. Royal Khiva is an open-air museum, and Bukhara is filled with the enchanting atmosphere and ancient architecture of the medieval city, and Samarkand will immerse you in the tales of “1001 Nights”. While in Termez, you'll be a few kilometers from the border with Afghanistan, but you have nothing to worry about. For several years, Uzbekistan has been among the five safest countries in the world. Your safety is our number one priority on all tours in Uzbekistan. Moreover, the country is very secure due to strong borders and a very stable political situation.
