"Better known as Kokand" Qo'qon by nepalgoods

Qo'qon Travel Guide: 10 reviews and 26 photos

A big Palace and an impressive cemetary

In Germany this city is mainly known as "Kokand". Here in VT we find it under Qo'qon, which certainly is the right spelling but unknown to Westerners. I am writing about this town as Kokand.

Kokand is not as wellknown and does not have as many beautiful buildings as Bukhara or Samarkand. It nevertheless is worth a visit!

Next Stop on my Trip in June 2007:

Tashkent: wonderful and vibrating capital of Uzbekistan.

    Another interesting page on your delightful travel. Kokand has always been a purl for travel even in Soviet times. But I haven't been there. Especially I liked your pic with beautiful snowcapped mountains on your way to Tashkent.
