Chirchik River - Uzbekistan

Chirchik River

Chirchik River

Chirchik River comes all the way down the Chirchik Valley passing the Charvak Water Reservoir until reaches Tashkent and keeps down southeast.
Irrigation canals on the Chirchik River supply power for several hydroelectric plants.
A big part of the scenery of the Valley is full of power plants and chemical facilities which give a porr image to this amazing site just a couple of hours from the capital. Right now, almost all the factories are closed to danger is no longer there and you can take bath but just aside a big factory or something. The water from the river runs from the mountains and its colour can tell its from pure spring.

charvak uzbekistan tashkent - Uzbekistan

charvak uzbekistan tashkent

Charvak water reservoir

Charvak is located in the Chirchik Valley on the surroundings of Tashkent. This is exactly located where the 2 rivers Ugam and Chirchik get together. This is a very relaxing place although I have to say the surounding landscape isnt that inspiring due to the nearest moribund chemical factory... either the way it makes a perfect day out escapnig the great turbulence and agitation of the capital Tashkent.

bukhara uzbekistan - Uzbekistan

bukhara uzbekistan

Old town-Bukhara

You should go out of the normal streets of Bukhara and enjoy the old part of it, far from big monuments close to streets often used by tourists. This sould be a different aproach of the city's architecture and youl have a whole different view of the building and how do local people live.

Memorial Complex of Hazrat Bakhouddin Nakshband

This memorial complex is located 12km from Bukhara. This is a non-Muslims off limit zone unless you can actually get a guide. This way you can easily go inside but not to all the different buildings.
Bakhouddin Nakshband was buried here in 1389. He was the ofunder of "Nakshbandis" studies and revived again sunats of Muammad s.a.w.
