Itinerary: Tashkent –Zaamin – Tashkent

Best time: between April and October

Zaamin National Park is located 240 km from Tashkent on the northern slope of the western part of the Turkistan Range of Pamir-Alay mountain system. It was established in 1976. Mountain ecosystems and relict juniper (archa) forests are protected in this unique place. The protected area occupies a territory of 31,500 hectares. It has an interesting landscape with a strongly marked mountain chain decreasing from east to west and covering the middle-mountain and high-mountain zone of the ridge at an altitude of between 1760 and 3500 m above sea level.

At present Zaamin Natural Park is a perfect place for ecological tourism and active outdoor recreation. It will fascinate you with its bright colors and picturesque landscapes and will certainly remain the brightest and most pleasant memory in your life.

Zaamine is an environmentally friendly area that has preserved its pristine beauty and has unique flora and fauna. Zaamin Reserve is located in Jizzak region of Uzbekistan between Samarkand and Tashkent. It is known from history that Zaamin was a part of one of the oldest regions of Central Asia – Ustrushana – lying between historical regions of Sogd, Baktriya, Fergana and Chach. According to archaeological sources, this land was cultivated more than two thousand years ago (II-I centuries BC). During excavations the remains of settlements of more than 2,500 years old were found here. Translated from Tajik, “Zaamin” means “arable land” because in ancient times this area was famous for the fertility of the soil.

There are all necessary infrastructure facilities on the territory of Zaamin National Park including recreation centers and guest houses provided with electricity, gas and water. Convenient approach roads enable us to organize tours all year round. It is possible to organize hiking mountain tours – starting from day trips to longer tours of 3-4 days, horse tours, hiking routes, games and competitions on orienteering, as well as easy ski tours in winter.

Come and taste the aroma of wonderful local zira and tandir kebab meat cooked under the branches of the fragrant juniper tree! Make sure to taste this signature dish in one of the cafes or teahouses near the entrance to the National Park.

During the tour to Zaamin National Park you will appreciate nature in all its glory and enjoy the cleanest mountain air!
