Uzbekistan Discovery Trails : June 10th to 18th' 2023

Famous for its incredible historical cities; delightful Uzbekistan is the land of the great Khanates and Sultanates – the kingdoms that controlled the Silk Road of Khiva, Bukhara and Samarkand.
Once home of the mighty warlore Timur, Samarkand’s highlight is the great Registan Square, surrounded with grand madrassah. Bukhara perfectly captures the atmosphere of Central Asia before the Russian domination, and has many spectacular buildings such as the Kalon Mosque and the Ark Fortress. Khiva is the best preserved Khanate. Its long and bloody history is fascinating, and the walls that used to provide sanctuary for Silk Road travellers are as intact as the old town inside. We will also be visiting Tashkent, the countries capital and the most modern Uzbeki city. The elaborately decorated metro stations of Tashkent are a sight to be seen.
And outside of the cities, Uzbekistan is just as full of surprises – like the traditional villages of the Nuratau Mountains or a desert-bound yurt camps. This is Uzbekistan, in all its charming glory.
