Are you tired of the city traffic and noise? Do you need to relax and feel the harmony and balance on the camping? Visit one of the Uzbek village.
Travel companies in Uzbekistan offer a wide variety of ethnic tours. Here you can participate in the life of rural residents, live in a remote village or in the yurts, attend a local wedding or celebration of the baby birth, ride horses and camels, go on a safari through the colorful deserts and enjoy the unique exotic fauna of diverse Uzbekistan.
Living in a tourist village is a great opportunity to see rural life from the inside. Wake up with the sound of birds, enjoy the most natural breakfast, lie on the grass and admire the blue sky, see how to cook pilaf on the hearth, how to milk a cow and participate in the harvest, see how to make ceramics by hand or the world’s most beautiful silk using ancient technology. All these can be seen during the living in the tourist village.
The main advantage of cities and villages in Uzbekistan is that they have kept their authenticity and identity. Therefore, Uzbekistan attracts so many tourists.
If you want to join the life and culture of the northern people of Uzbekistan and learn the centuries-old traditions and the way of life of local residents, choose yurt camps.
Traditional Uzbek yurt camps are built in the form of traditional nomadic settlements.
Living in the yurts is absolutely eco-friendly, only natural materials are used in their production, such as wood and felt. Each yurt is designed for about 5 people.
In the yurt camp you will feel yourself on the edge of civilization, transported in time, feel the atmosphere of the Silk road, among the nomads and traders whose caravans once passed through these places.
Usually, tours with accommodation in the yurt camps often include various exotic services: a ride on camels, three meals a day, camping by the fire with folklore performances under an endless starry sky.
In addition, you can walk to the nearest village and get acquainted with the daily life and culture of the local people, or, for example, see an ancient fortress.
Some of the most famous yurt camps in Uzbekistan are: “Aydar”, located 10 kilometers from the Aydarkul Lake, “Safari” camp near the city of Nurata, Yurt camp “Muynak” on the shore of the Aral Sea, “Ayaz-Kala” camp near the settlement of Ayaz-Kala and others.
Do you like adventure and nature? What do you think about living in an Uzbek village? In fact, it is possible.
You come to a certain region, live in a village, and learn how to run a farm together with the owners. There are many options for the offered tours – from the stockbreeding (horse-breeding, cattle-breeding, fishing, poultry farming) to the growing of vegetables and fruits.
What can be better for the suffering traveler than the active leisure in the nature, giving a lot of interesting impressions and emotions.
Wine production in Uzbekistan has a very deep history. It is believed that the first grapes were brought here 6 thousand years ago. And even then in Central Asia there was a high technology of winemaking and growing grapes.
The famous Venetian traveler of the middle ages, Marco Polo, who traveled through Central Asia, wrote in his diary:
“Samarkand, Bukhara and other wonderful cities are the places decorated with the magnificent gardens and vineyards. I tasted the wine here. This wine was at least a dozen years old, and it amazed with its excellent quality…”
In 1927, a famous winemaker, Professor M. A. Khovrenko, came to Uzbekistan. He was the first in our country to develop technical methods for the production of fine wines, such as" Gulyakandoz"," Shirin"," Liqueur Cabernet"," Aleatiko"," Uzbekistan "and" Farkhod", and organized the opening of the first winery for their production.
