Travel to Qazakh From St. Petersburg
The beautiful mountain village of Qazakh comes as the gateway to Tashkent, the capital of Uzbekistan. It is a popular summer escape for those interested in culture, history, nature and adventure sports. There are many trips organized here that can be a pleasant break from the monotony of urban life. A trip to Qazakh will enable you to get a feel for the unique traditions and lifestyle of the people of this region. A cultural tour to the region is incomplete without a visit to Tashkent’s Qutub Minar, which was built centuries ago as the focal point of a city and it still possesses a powerful influence over its people.
One of the most popular tourist attractions in Tashkent is the huge Tsunami memorial. Built in memory of all those who lost their lives in the disasters that rocked the region in 2021, it serves as a poignant reminder of how human can forget its responsibility to society and fellow human beings. The memorial consists of a large museum and a large open square surrounded by a circle of stone. Tourists can look at the names of those who lost their lives and pay their last respects. After a while you can go to the square and take a walk around in its memorial.
It is quite possible that the trip to Qazakh will turn out to be a pleasant experience, but it is better to prepare for the unexpected. Since the security situation in Tashkent is quite high nowadays, it is always a good idea to be prepared to protect yourself from some sort of attack. You should also carry some cash with you, because even if your hotel does not have a safe room, you can arrange for a ride to the local ATM instead. If your hotel has a restaurant, you can either take a taxi or ask someone in the hotel to drive you there.
In case of an emergency, you must make sure that your passport is valid and up to date. Make sure that all the important papers such as your medical insurance, work permit and residence permit are in order. Before you leave, get an apartment or flat in a well-populated area. It is better to stay there for a few days, rather than staying in a hotel which might not be safe. The location of the apartment is very important, as many people are targeted there. It should be close to the metro and the bus stops.
Your guide will tell you how to reach the hotel, but you can also ask someone from the hotel to take you there. It is possible to book rooms near the ancient buildings of Khovsgol. You can also arrange for a tour of the city through a private tour operator. If you want to travel around inside the city, you can use the metro or take a cab.
For many people, a Khovsgol tour is incomplete without a visit to the Pamir Mountains. Pamir is the home of the world’s third highest mountain – the Znamarid. The Znamarid is considered sacred and is closed to tourist entry for security reasons. However, a private tour operator can also show you the valley where the Znamarid is situated.
