You will probably start and end your tour in Tashkent, the capital of Uzbekistan. As the country’s international airport is located there, most visitors spend up to 24 hours in Tashkent before continuing west to Samarkand. Tashkent has its own allure, and staying here for a few days will give you a taste of life away from the tourist hubs.

Tashkent is worth more than a quick stopover; you should plan on staying there for at least a few days. There are many excellent dining options, stunning historical landmarks, and kind and welcoming locals.

1. Tashkent Tower

Tashkent Tower ranks as the world’s eleventh tallest building. The structure’s unique form evokes images of a spaceship preparing for takeoff. The tower’s overall height is 1,230 feet, and its viewing platform is 328 feet. The observation deck is on the sixth story, and the revolving restaurant and bar are on the seventh floor. The meals and drinks are decently priced for how cool the place is. Return to the Tashkent Tower after nightfall if you’re in the neighbourhood. It comes to life at night with flashing white lights. It’s an absolute must if you’re in Tashkent.

2. Amir Timur Sq.

To provide relief from the severe heat of Uzbekistan, the vast expanse of green features a large number of shady spaces and trees. You may come across several statues honouring great Uzbek poets, singers, and writers in addition to the numerous statues of Timur. If you would like to purchase some manti and shashlik and enjoy a picnic in the shade, there are a few restaurants, shops, and food vendors located on the outskirts of the park. One of the best locations to go in Tashkent for a relaxing afternoon is Navoi Park, located in the city’s centre.

10. Chimgan Canyon

The Chimgan canyon is about two hours north of Tashkent, and it’s a great place to go trekking, rafting, or skiing. Although it might not be the first thing that comes to mind when you think about Uzbekistan, the country has many opportunities for outdoor enthusiasts, including numerous hiking paths and overnight accommodations. Getting here requires either a marshrutka or a private taxi. Taking public transportation will save you money, but getting there may require a transfer. For up-to-the-minute information, we recommend contacting your inn. You can count on your hostel or guesthouse is a decent starting point.
