Uzbekistan - 20-Apr-09 -

I have been in this place in March 2008. This fabulous place attracted me with it's view. You can see almost whole Fergana valley from hills located in this place. Local people said that civilization were blosseomed here since mongolian invaders destroyed the city. This place were famous with it's high quality steel also known to the western world as Damascus steel. I've enjoyed fried fish which you can by in "Choyhona" situated near the Syr Darya river just for $5 and delicious dishes like "Manti", "Honum" that are the part of uzbek kitchen. To get here i've traveled from capital of Uzbekistan Tashkent to Namangan for $50 and after to Turakurgan $10. And i've payed $30 for local guide. Local people call this place "Akhsikent". Local people are very friendly.
