No name is as evocative of the Silk Road as Samarkand. For most people it has the mythical resonance of Atlantis, fixed in the Western popular imagination by poets and playwrights of bygone eras, few of whom saw the city in the flesh.  From the air your eye locks onto the domes and minarets, and on the ground the sublime, larger-than-life monuments of Timur, the technicolour bazaar and the city’s long, rich history, indeed work some kind of magic.

The holiday is full of original rituals and colorful ceremonies. Its celebration usually marks by concerts in parks and squares, trade fairs and national horseracing competitions, which are called “Kupkari”. Kupkari, (also known as uloq and buzkashi), is a wild, traditional sport played on horseback throughout Central Asia. The Uzbek annual spring kupkari tournament will be held at Samarkand's hippodrome to Navruz holiday. This game is compared to polo. Both games are played between people on horseback, both involve propelling an object toward a goal, and both get fairly rough. Two mounted teams attempt to deliver a headless and legless goat's or ram’s carcass weighing 30 - 40kg over the opposition's goal line. A line of horsemen flies off at the sign of the judge. One of them outrides the others and at full speed picks up the carcass of a goat from the ground. Tat fraction of a second is enough for the other riders to catch up with him and try to take away his trophy. This game called ulak or kupkari in Uzbek, means "the game of many people". In Russian the game is also called "flaying the goat".
You can also taste special patties with greenery, nishalda, a sweet dessert made of egg whites, whipped with sugar and scented roots of herbs, puff samsa, the fragrant pilaf... So, the table is plentifully served with delicious meals to Uzbek New Year-Navruz.

Ak Saray Palace - Much was written about this palace, especially by Rue Gonzales de Klavikho, the Spanish Ambassador to Amir Temur, who was an important figure in the history of Shakhrisabz. Parts of the portal that remained are evidence of the scale of its construction; Ak-Saray is still unsurpassed in its intricate mosaic and other decorations that showed off the arts of traditional craftsmen. Above the portal of the Ak-Saray are huge letters saying: "If you challenge our power - look at our buildings!")

Visit central Lyabi Hauz Square, the Chashma Ayub Mausoleum, 18th century Bolo-Hauz Mosque and ancient Ark Fortress, the palace of the Emirs of Bukhara. Also see the magnificent Kalyan Mosque, the elegant blue-tiled Ulughbek Madrasa (Islamic school) and the summer palace of Bukhara’s last Emir, the Sitorai-Mokhi-Khosa (Palace of the Moon and Stars).

DAY 7. BUKHARA – KHIVA 24/03


After breakfast, embark on a seven hour journey across the Kara-Kum (black sands) and Kyzyl-Kum (red sands) Deserts to Khiva, one of the most remote oasis cities of the Silk Road. Transfer to Khiva by road, crossing the river Amu Darya and desert Kizilkum. In Uzbekistan there are two great rivers: the boundary river Amu Darya (in antiquity called Oxus) and northern Syr-Darya (in antiquity called Yaksard). The length of Syr-Darya makes 2213km, and together with its inflow to Naryn 3019 km. Amu Darya originates in Hindu Kush, its length makes 2540 km. Amu Darya takes start in the east of Pamir where the river Pandj flows through gorges of Hindu Kush, incorporates with Vahsh, and then flows to Aral Sea as Amu Darya. Desert Karakum occupies the greater deserted areas of the Central Asia with its extent of 350.000 km and desert Kyzyl Kum the area of which occupies 300.000 km. In the south only the small part of desert Karakum, which means "black sand", belongs to Uzbekistan. Sands of Karakum, however, are not black, more likely "penalty" means as "dangerous". In the north situated the desert Kyzyl Kum ("red sand") which is stretched between the Amu Darya and Syr-Darya rivers. The desert at the certain hours during the day seems really reddish. Both deserts are not cleanly sandy deserts, they are covered by plants. As in the Central Asian deserts in one year drops up to 200 mm of deposits, mainly in the spring, both deserts not waterless. It can be felt especially in March when the carpet of grasses, consisting, first of all of a sedge, tamarisk, a saxaul, start to blossom. In deserts lives basically herbivore kowtowing animals: lizards, monitor lizards of the snake. If it’s goes lucky, it is possible to see wild camels and susliks.

During our tour of Khiva we’ll visit the Kunya Ark, Kalta minor, Muhammad Aminkhan and Muhammad Rahimkhan medrassas, Juma mosque and Minaret, Islam Khodja minaret, Tash Hauli palace and others. The list of sights worth visiting in Khiva is endless but since they’re all encapsulated in the compact old town, it’s easily doable in a day especially since we’ll be accompanied by a local guide. Khiva is spectacular by night when the moonlight silhouettes the tilting columns and medressas and the dim lighting and shadows in the twisting alleyways make it seem like a scene out of an Arabian Nights movie. Therefore, it would be a good idea to take a stroll around the old town today. Dinner at city restaurant. Overnight at Hotel. (B, D)

All travelers, even those simply transiting Uzbekistan for less than 72 hours, must obtain an Uzbek visa before traveling to Uzbekistan. If you plan an overnight stay or have a long layover, you will need a visa to exit the transit lounge of the airport.

There is a simplified visa procedure for the citizens of Austria, Belgium, Germany, France, Italy, Japan, Latvia, Malaysia, Spain, Switzerland, the United Kingdom of Great Britain and Northern Ireland and the United States. To obtain a Tourist Visa, all other foreign nationals need visa support from one of the Travel Companies authorized by the National Tourism Company "Uzbektourism". Visa support application is submitted by the Travel Agency to the Ministry of Foreign Affairs of the Republic of Uzbekistan in Tashkent. The approval period is about 7-10 working days. The approved visa support is faxed directly to the Embassy or Consulate of the Republic of Uzbekistan in the country where the traveler is receiving the visa.Visa can be obtained in the Consular Missions of the Republic of Uzbekistan abroad. In the Tashkent Airport visas can only be issued to those persons who are arriving from the countries where the Republic of Uzbekistan does not have permanent diplomatic or consular missions.

Uzbekistan Weather

Uzbekistan has an extreme continental climate. It is generally warmer in the south and colder in the north. The average temperatures in December are -8°C (18°F) in the north and 0°C (32 °F) in the south. However, extreme fluctuations are measured as low as -35°C (-31°F). During the summer temperatures can reach 35-40°C. Humidity is low. The Spring (April to June) and the Fall (September through October) are in general the most pleasant times to travel. In the Fall is a harvest time, and the markets are full of fresh fruit. If you're interested in trekking, then summer (July and August) is the best time, because summers are almost dry. In recent years Uzbekistan was notably affected by the global warming and dry-out of the Aral Sea, which turned from snowy cold winters to mild with less precipitation by allowing to travel in the wintertime.

Location Of Uzbekistan

The Republic of Uzbekistan is situated in the central part of Central Asia between two rivers: the Amudarya and Syrdarya. The Turan Lowland lies to the northwest, and the Tien-Shan and Pamir-Alay mountain ridges are located in the southeast of the territory. The Kyzyl-Kum Desert defines the Northern part of the country. Uzbekistan borders Turkmenistan, Kazakhstan, Tajikistan, and Afghanistan.

Tourist Seasons

Because of the peculiarity of climate, first half of tourist season falls on spring months: March, April, May, and the second half is in August, September and October. Also there is tourist activity in winter months for the lovers of mountains and winter ports (ski, snowboard).

Public Holidays

  • January 1 - New Year
  • March 8 - International Women's Day
  • March 21 - Navruz (Central Asian New Year)
  • May 1 - Labor Day
  • May 9 - Memorial/Remembrance Day
  • September 1 - Independence Day
  • October 1 - Teacher's Day
  • December 8 - Constitution Day.

There are other religious holidays with varying dates

  • Ramadan Khait
  • Kurban Khait

Uzbekistan Currency

All payments must be made in "Sum", the national currency of the Republic of Uzbekistan. Currency exchange offices are available in every city of Uzbekistan. All foreign currencies may be converted in main offices of banks. Preferred currencies - US dollars and Euros.

Clothing

Very light and loose clothing (preferably cotton or natural fibers) is recommended for daytime use, with a light jumper and/or casual jacket for the cooler evenings. Because of the large amount of sightseeing on foot in dry, dusty and sometimes rough areas (i.e. dirt, cobblestones, etc.), comfortable, solid walking shoes with strong soles and support are essential. You may be required to remove your shoes upon entry to some religious sites. There are no special clothing requirements for visiting Islamic religious sites, except that you should take care to cover most parts of your body including your arms and legs. Above all travelers are encouraged to dress for comfort rather than fashion. Valuable jewelry and any clothing requiring special attention should be left at home. Due to the very high danger of sunburn, your clothing should offer as much protection as possible. A hat with good shade protection and sunglasses are essential. In some areas the average visitor may appear extremely wealthy to local people. A lavish display of jewelry, bulging handbags and wallets, and a neck full of cameras will make you stand out in a crowd. Be discreet and respectful of the local culture and traditions and carry a minimum of valuables.

Luggage

A shoulder bag with a strong strap or a small rucksack is the most practical way of carrying cameras and personal belongings during your stay. Your entire luggage should be secured with a padlock. Always make sure that all cases and bags are clearly labeled. The label should carry your name and destination details but not your home address. It is a good idea to label your luggage on the inside. This will enable airport authorities to identify your luggage should it become lost, or the labels removed. Never leave your luggage unattended at airports or train stations. Your free airline luggage allowance is 20 kg per person, plus one additional piece of 'carry-on' hand luggage on domestic flights within Central Asia, except to Turkmenistan, where the maximum baggage allowance is 10 kg. Because you will be traveling in some areas where travel conditions are rather basic, travelers are strongly urged to restrict their luggage to one main suitcase or backpack and one carry-on overnight bag. As recommended under CURRENCY and SECURITY, an important part of your luggage will also be your money wallet for safely carrying your travel documents.

Health

You will be traveling in areas which are largely free of major infectious diseases, so there are no official vaccination requirements for foreign visitors. However, we strongly advise you to consult your physician or Vaccination Centre for current health warnings and recommended vaccinations. As it is practically inevitable in areas where water is high in mineral and metallic salts (as is the case with Central Asia) one should be prepared for minor gastric conditions. Consult your physician or pharmacist for recommended remedies. Throughout the areas you will be traveling, one of the main health warnings is dehydration. At all times maintain a steady intake of non-alcoholic liquids. Sunburn is another major problem. Bring adequate suntan lotion and a wide brimmed hat. If desired, you may also bring a supply of vitamins, throat lozenges, throat gargle to prevent basic infections, cold/flu tablets, aspirins, Band-Aids, antiseptics and antibacterial cream. Please advise us if you have any allergies or particular medical aliments which may require special attention during the trip, and if your doctor has prescribed any medication, make sure that you have sufficient supplies to last the duration of your holiday. Important: Please, ensure that you carry in your hand luggage any medicine you may require in case your suitcase is separated from you.

Security

Individual safety boxes are not always available in Uzbekistan hotels. An essential part of your luggage is a comfortable money wallet, which may be worn under your clothing. At all times you should carry your main documents (i.e. currency, traveler's checks, air tickets, passports, visas etc.) While it is highly unlikely you will encounter any physical danger, minor thefts in crowded pubic places may occur and every precaution should be taken to avoid losing anything of value. In accordance with local laws, you will be required to hand in your passport to the hotel reception on arrival to allow registration of your passport details by the hotel. Your passport will normally be available again after a few hours. Do not forget to collect it before departure.

Photography In Uzbekistan

No obstacles are presented to visitors who wish to photograph places of historical interest. Photography inside some religious monuments and in airports, railway stations or near military installations may not be allowed. If in doubt ask your local guide. Please also note that there is a fee for photography in most sightseeing places (not included in your tour price). Film and batteries are available in major cities, but we recommend you purchase your supply before arrival, particularly if you have the latest model or a sophisticated type of camera that requires a specific type of film and/or batteries.

Drinks

Local mineral water contains a higher level of minerals than western spring or bottled water and the taste can be rather "salty" (these mineral waters are considered healthier than European spring or mineral waters). Imported spirits and wines are available, however in some places the provenance of some spirits and wines is questionable and the prices inflated. Accordingly, you are advised to purchase your favorite alcohol duty free prior to arrival.

Incidentals

You will be responsible for covering the cost of your hotel incidentals such as phone calls, room service, mini-bar in your room and laundry. Before departing from all hotels on the tour, please ensure that you have checked with the front desk for any personal charges that the hotel may have made to your room.

Tipping

Travelers may wish to express their appreciation - a reward for extra service - to the porters, waiters, drivers and guides. The degree of appreciation may vary, and our policy is to leave this to your discretion. This is usually given individually in an envelope at the end of the tour/service.
