TRAVELLING THROUGH UZBEKISTAN can sometimes feel like you’re visiting a museum, with so many magical, ancient monuments that burst from the history books.
Conveniently situated between Tashkent and Samarkand, the Nuratau mountains area welcomes visitors to experience traditional rural life. Affordable and comfortale homestays can be arranged by several community organizations, allowing a glimpse into life in the villages.
Hike between communities. Sit under the trees drinkng tea as fresh fruit falls. Even if you are not lucky enough to catch a wedding, you’ll be made to feel an honoured guest, not a paying client.
