The Best Sites On Your Turkmenistan Uzbekistan Tajikistan Group Tour Include
Ashgabat the capital of Turkmenistan has experienced a boom in the field of Marble Architecture in the last 25 years.
The tour includes visits to the National Museum of History, the Ertogrul Ghazy Mosque, the Presidential Square, the Arch of Neutrality, the newly built Independence Park and the Spiritual Mosque which is known to be one of the most influential and substantial mosques in Central Asia.
Kov Ata- Nokhur
Ride on the famous Turkmen horses locally known as Akhal Teke. A horse ride to the Kov Ata underground lake, located about 90km to the West of Ashgabat is a memory worth cherishing.
Tashkent is considered to be the biggest city in Central Asia and one of the oldest. Sadly, in an earthquake in 1966, most of its memorable buildings were destroyed. Nevertheless, a couple of structures strikingly at the Khast Imom Complex have survived and the complex contains antiquated Quran book of Caliph Uthman (from the seventh century!) and the mausoleum of the Islamic holy saint, Abu Bakr Kaffal Shashi
Tour the walled internal city area of Khiva called Ichan-Kala. This old area of town saves in excess of fifty notable monuments and many old houses going back several years. Sparkling Islamic beacon, the Kalta-minor Minaret are also witnessed while you roam through the huge city entryways. Wide perspectives of Old Khiva on the Kunya-Ark Citadel can also be enjoyed.
Bukhara is a very significant trading post and you have several opportunities to see traditional Uzbek products being bought and sold. The Old Town has been well conserved and is crammed full of minarets, mosques, and madrassas.
Its once ill-famed canals and pools, the source of many diseases, have now been drained but the most famous, Lyabi-Hauz, is still there, an oasis sheltered by mulberry trees at the core of the city.
Various wondrous sights of Bukhara can also be seen. Beginning with the madrasah Chor-Minor, translated as “four minarets”, which is said so because of it’s small four minarets which are tapped with blue domes on each side of the rectangular building.
The summer palace of the last Emir of Bukhara is also one of the spots which can be visited since it’s a unique site combining Oriental and Russian architecture which is not located very far from the city.
Helicopter Ride Over The Pamirs
This is one of the most enthralling experiences you could ever have. The chopper traverse through the mountains, not over them, so the windows are open and you can feel the brittle mountain air flood into the cabin at 5,000 meters! and the view is spectacular.
If the chopper isn’t available, the small or charter planes are still an exhilarating experience.
Osh city Tour – Fergana in Uzbekistan
The Suleiman Mountain nicknamed as Kichi-Mecca (Little Mecca), which is a major place of Muslim and pre-Muslim pilgrimage should also be added to the visiting list. At the peak of the mountain, there is a stone shelter called as Babur’s House, which was rumoured to be the place of prophet Sulaiman burial, but even before it was a place of pilgrimage for local people.
