Being the only particular landlocked country within Central Asia, Uzbekistan is an awesome destination for perfect holidays. Uzbekistan has endless tourist attractions. There are numerous art museums, mausoleums, great valleys, lovely mountains and enticing cities that have acted as a major motive as to why thousands of tourists stream in there all the years. The country also abhors a cool and tranquil atmosphere that will leave you mesmerized. Its landscape is also gorgeous. Right at the peak of club’s travel session at our institution, we enthralled booking a flight trip to Uzbekistan to appreciate her majestic attractions. The experience we had while in Uzbekistan was beyond our expectation. It was indeed a worth of mentioning trip. This left me with undying urge to tell it all to those who are planning to visit Uzbekistan.
We started off at the stunning Sitorai-Mokhi-Khosa. This site is also popularly known as the palace of Moons and Stars and was indeed a breath taking palace. Its architectural design embraced lots of European and Central Asian plans. It was so beautiful and symbolic for such a place. We walked into its interiors where we were first met by the impeccable White Hall which is known to have been the welcome hall for the earlier Emir. It was beautifully inflated with all sorts of decorations. There were attractive and charming stucco figurines that had been laid on a mirror backdrop. This made it look more of a paradise. We were very delightful for having toured these grounds. The palace was also a compelling museum with charming items on display. We explored closely each of them while taking them photos and were only appreciative to the good work done by the particular formulators of all of them. There were also fabulous guides who readily helped us learn much of the inviting history of the palace. It was indeed a place worth of visiting and we were very joyful that we had chosen the most scenic site to commence our adventures.
We then headed straight to the dazzling Natura Nature Reserve within the stirring Djizak City. The reserve was mind-blowing and very spectacular. We were immersed into gorgeous views of captivating flora and fauna and more so the picturesque mountainous landscape that occupied a better part of it. We choose to start off by hiking up the mountains to feel the sensational ambiance they created. It was surely a nice place to spend most of our time. We liked the green magnetic foliage that covered the grounds. We actually rested on one lovely part of the mountains to have a better view of all the beauties embraced by the striking mountain. The wildlife too was amazing. There were several beautiful wolves, foxes and bears. The wolves maintained their naughty trend of making ugly but enchanting noises that we wished we had carried some recorder to record these amusing noises. There were also numerous wild sheep that commanded for our attention. They were lovely and looked similar to the domestic ones. We really loved this impeccable experience and vowed to return to the reserve again.
The Fergana Valley was next on our list of adventure. The valley was astounding with a distinctive setting. This valley is also called the Golden Valley. It was densely covered with thousands of residential and business buildings giving a vivid understanding of its jam packed population. The valley was also full of large plantations full of attractive crops. This made us comprehend its fertile soils that were a sure reason of the dense population. The valley was so magnetic with good looking ranges surrounding its region. On the northern part was the amazing Chatkal range that was the source of the charming Syr Darya River that streamed through the exquisite valley and offered its waters to the large population reside in it. It was a nice moment viewing these ranges and also touring the pretty banks of Syr Darya River. We actually took a few seconds there to appreciate the cool ambiance that was within there. We were also able to view the divine Pamir Alai ranges that exhibited their beauty from the southern end. They looked gorgeous and we were able to have lots of their photos. We were indeed grand that our visit was going perfect.
The impeccable Yodgorlik factory was also another site that got us completely amused. The building was massive with an impressive design that was not so common in many parts of the country. We really had great fun touring its interiors. There were large machineries refining the mind blowing silk into fine lovely fabric. We were totally enthralled by their charm and the inviting processes that were involved. We were lucky to find a friendly guide who helped us more in appreciating the beauty that lay before our eye inquisitive eyes. We were also amazed but mesmerized to learn that the factory was the most outstanding fabric manufacturer in the intercontinental market. It indeed demanded for such recognition. Its work was with no doubt the very best. We did take several photos of the superb fabrics for an easy identification of the very same make in the markets. We would definitely tour this site again.
Rishon area within the enticing Fergana region was yet another site we hypnotized venturing. The site was one the best places we had ever visited. There were oodles of fantastic ceramics on display at every part of it. We liked them very much as they had a thrilling make, one that all would commend. We actually took one delicate pot to carry home. The place is known to have large deposits of useful red clay and ordinary minerals that are used in the formulation of the ceramics. We did see all this wonders and only remained indebted to all those who discovered them. We actually learnt that the artists from this region had the title of most famous artists in the whole world. There was also a vast coverage of vegetations that we learnt were used in painting. There was also a friendly mountainous landscape that stood in the great parts of Rishon. They actually made the whole area worth of visiting.
We then visited the splendid Turabek Khanum Mausoleum. This site was specifically constructed in honor of the then Mongol Princess, Turabek. It exhibited a royal design. The decorations that were used to beautify it were not easy to find anywhere else. There was an elevated twelve sided wall sanctuary that had a lovely and inspiring structural design. There were also attractive 365 segments that marked the days of a year, 24 porticos that represented the hours of a day, 12 larger porticos symbolizing the months of a year and also had four windows that signified the weeks of a month. It was hard to believe the esteem the people of Uzbekistan had for the majestic ones. It was however an alluring moment discovering these beauties. The sanctuary also had several more decorations; there were honeycomb made terrazzo with beautiful tints such as blue and green. We had to take several snaps of the amazing site as we could never want to lose its good memories.
We finally visited the striking Juma Mosque and Madrasah. The mosque was spectacular in its design and structure. We toured its interiors to analyze its magnificent wonders. There were lots of beautiful items at the front part and more so spiritual giving it the real touch of a religious ground. We also found a few individuals there attending the common Madrasah classes. We interacted with them as we wanted to know more of the mosque’s history. We learnt that this was the only building in that region that survived the historical earthquake of 1902. It was surely worth of being visited.
Beauties in Uzbekistan are more than we had imagined. We could hardly finish touring all its attractions and so we planned a second visit. Our visit was the most dramatic in all our life time.
