Itinerary: Tashkent – Kokand – Rishtan – Fergana – Margilan– Tashkent

Explore the best of Fergana Valley on this two-day tour. It is a land of fruit gardens and vineyards described centuries ago by a homesick son of this place and a founder of the Mughal Empire of India – Zahiriddin Bobur. Hear stories from a friendly guide and see the real Uzbekistan…

Fergana Valley is an intermountain basin in the upper course of the Syrdarya river, surrounded by the Pamir Alay and Tian Shan mountains. Only in the west the valley with a narrow 9 km corridor leaves the plain by Hunger and Dalverzin steppes.

The Fergana Valley stands out for its abundance and diversity of natural wealth, so people call it the Pearl of Uzbekistan. All necessary natural conditions for human life and development were found here since ancient times of farming. They are fertile soil, favorable climate and abundance of water resources. All this has greatly contributed to the emergence of a settled-farming culture from the most ancient ages. In antiquity Fergana formed an independent historical and cultural oasis of Central Asia, similar to Bactria, Sogd and Khorezm.

The population of Margilan has long been engaged in the production of silk fabrics and this fact made the city famous not only in Uzbekistan but all over the world. Silk produced here is considered one of the best in the international market. Almost for 3 centuries – from 1598 till 1876 Margilan was a part of the Kokand Khanate. Fine local silk was exported to the countries of Europe and the East along the ancient tracks of the Great Silk Road. Evidence of this are actual silk textiles and fragments of silk clothes dating back to 6th and 7th centuries AD. These items were found by archeologists inside reed tomb caskets during excavations in Munchaktepa settlement.
