Uzbekistan Adventure

An uzbekistan adventure

Introduction

Want an adventure like no other?  To tread the well-worn, yet barely visited path of the Silk Road through Uzbekistan’s ancient cities of Bukhara and Samarkand. Then a Uzbekistan Adventure is awaiting you.

In 2018 I first visited Uzbekistan and to take an incredible adventure through Uzbekistan, a country famous for its ancient Silk Road cities covered with mosques, old forts as well as mystery. Beginning in Bukhara and ending in Khiva, this trip will have you following in the footsteps of many traders, ancient pilgrims, and Alexander the Great. Walk in the shadows of the magnificent blue-tiled buildings and this is an Uzbekistan Adventure you won’t forget.

Why I think you’ll love this trip

The Beautiful Registan in Samarkand is one of the true pinnacles of Islamic architecture, but the vibrant Old City of Bukhara is also a gem of the silk road. You’ll be amazed by the scale, grandeur and beauty of the monuments to iconic figures such as Tamerlane and the Persia-influenced madrassas, mosques and mausoleums.

What I loved about Central Asia was the unique mix of ancient Silk Road culture and a bit of Soviet influence.

In Uzbekistan you can spend an evening in the isolated Kyzylkum Desert with a fire talking about how excellent your adventure is, an evening watching the sun go down on Bukhara’s old city or climbing the Registan at sunrise.

What is significant about the experience is getting to know the stories and people of Uzbekistan while sharing home-cooked meals with local families in hostels

I recommend spending time in World Heritage-listed Bukhara, a 6th-century-BC city that’s swirling in history and home to the impressive Ark of Bukhara.

Will this trip be right for you?

Still, wondering about going to Uzbekistan? Here are a number of reasons why you should visit: 

Central Asia is a remote destination, I mean have any of your friends been there? Like us you will move well away from cities, right off the well worn track and be able to fully immerse yourself in the local food, the life and culture.

You will likely be limited on time so I recommend spending a little extra in Bukhara, we ended up going there twice on our trip. The place is special and the atmosphere of the old city is incredible.

So what are you waiting for?

If you have any questions about Uzbekistan let me know and I will be happy to help you plan your trip.
