How to travel to Uzbekistan

The most convenient way to travel to Uzbekistan is by taking flight to Tashkent, the capital, from main international airports of Europe, Asia and Middle East. The national airline is Uzbekistan Airways (HY), which significantly expanded its routes since independence of Uzbekistan, offers regular flights to London, Birmingham, Amsterdam, Athens, Frankfurt am Main, Paris, Peking, Bangkok, Delhi, Istanbul, Kuala Lumpur, New York, Seoul, and Tel Aviv. Further, HY offers flights to many destinations within the CIS and Uzbekistan. In addition, Tashkent is also served by several international carriers: Lufthansa (Frankfurt/M and Almaty), Pakistan International Airways (Islamabad), Air India (Delhi), Turkish Airlines (Istanbul), Shinjiang Airways (Urumchi in China) and Arianna (Kabul).

Accomodation - Hotels and Bed and Breakfasts

During the past few years, luxurious hotels were built in Tashkent, Samarkand and Bukhara, which are managed by western hotel operators. In addition, there are a number of licensed independent hotels and B&B's that provide suitable accommodation at much lower price. It is necessary for visitors to obtain a registration during the stay in Uzbekistan, which is usually provided by the hotel that you will stay. Most tourist hotel rooms have a shower, private bath, air conditioning, telephone, satellite TV with international channels like CNN, BBC, ESPN.

Making reservations:

To ensure that your choice of departures, tours and hotels will be available, we highly recommend an early reservation, especially during the busy seasons, which run from mid April through mid June and from end of August through late October. To enable us to deliver you the best experience we keep our group sizes small, usually no more than 10 to 15 participants per guide and tour leader. You can make an online reservation using our online reservation form.

Weather:

Uzbekistan has an extreme continental climate. It is generally warmest in the south and coldest in the north. Temperatures in December average -8C (18F) in the north and 0C (32 F) in the south. However, extreme fluctuations can take temperatures as low as -35C (-31F). During the summer temperatures can reach 45C (113F) and above. Humidity is low. Spring (April to June) and Fall (September through October) are in general the most pleasant times to travel. In Fall it's harvest time, and the markets are full of fresh fruit. If you're interested in trekking, then summer (July and August) is the best time, because summers are almost dry. In recent years Uzbekistan was notably affected by the global warming and dry-out of the Aral See, which turned snowy cold winters to mild with less precipitation by allowing to travel in the wintertime. The following is the average temperatures in Tashkent, the capital of Uzbekistan.
