Assalomu alaykum! Welcome to Uzbekistan, an epicentre for many civilisations, a place steeped in world history and tradition, and home to rare, untainted landscapes. Once a witness to the grandeur and decadence of the Mongol and Persian Empires and a privileged step of the Silk Road, Uzbekistan still has countless treasures from its multicultural past. From the Bukhara Madrasas to the gems of Timurid architecture, we come to the Khanate of Khiva in the heart of the desert, which seems almost timeless . You can feel the weight of history pervading the whole area. The country also offers great excursions, on foot and by camel, and the opportunity to discover wildlife which, despite the drought, remains as varied as it is exotic. During walks in the steppes and mountains, you will have the opportunity to observe gazelles, scorpions, lynx, mountain sheep and even snow leopards in their natural habitats.
It is often a good idea to discover a place under the guidance of a native, who will be familiar with the little corners that give it its charm and fully understands the ways and customs of the local people, and this inside knowledge is almost indispensible in Uzbekistan. As English is very basic here (not much use as soon as you are out of Tashkent) and the natural riches and culture are most often situated in out-of-the-way places, the assistance of a local Evaneos Travel partner will prove invaluable. Having settled years ago in a country that they know like the back of their hand, all they want is to enable you to discover it! They will lead you beyond the beaten track and help you make your holiday a unique experience. In addition, did you know that it rains five times less often than it did 50 years ago and that the Aral Sea has dried up by three quarters during the same period of time? This is the setting for an environmentally responsible trip in all senses, and this is just what Evaneos Travel offers!
The climate in Uzbekistan varies depending on whether you're in a desert or mountainous region. What's more seasonal temperature variations are very wide. Winters are harsh and summertime baking. It's best, therefore, to visit Uzbekistan during spring or fall. If you're heading to the plains, April to June and September to November are clement months. However, during these very same months, frequent and heavy rainfall hits the mountainous regions. Avoid March, the rainiest month of the year.
