What to see / where to visit:

Living in such a fertile land as our native Uzbekistan, you can have a great rest without leaving the country. For vacationers there is a wide range of various recreation areas and mountain resorts, sanatoriums and children's health camps. And there are many cozy and comfortable hotels for guests.

In recent years, there has been a significant transformation of the Chimgano-Charvak resort area, which was expressed in the restoration, reconstruction and improvement of large hotel complexes: "Chorvok Oromgohi", "Beldersoy Oromgohi", "Amirsoy Resort" and others, which took place with the active support and participation of the state (carried out at the expense of the state budget for power transmission lines, technical communications and road reconstruction).

These successful infrastructure projects have spurred the rapid development of private business in the region, which has resulted in the opening of hotels, campgrounds, guest houses, recreation areas and restaurants. All this led to the formation of a competitive environment and the offer of services aimed at this market segment.

Natural and climatic conditions of the western Tien Shan (gentle slopes, snow cover from December to March, predominance of clear, sunny weather, low avalanche risk), as well as developed infrastructure and proximity to potential markets (Tashkent city and its transport infrastructure - airport) create all conditions for the development of mass domestic and foreign tourism.

The implementation of the domestic tourist potential has already taken place and the mountains have become a favorite vacation spot for Uzbeks. However, much remains to be done for the development of external winter tourism, and there are serious prerequisites for this. First of all, this is the geographical position of the Republic of Uzbekistan, a characteristic feature of which is the presence of all natural and climatic zones characteristic of the Central Asian region. Alpine landscapes of the western Tien Shan, foothills, steppes and semi-deserts harmoniously coexist on the territory of the country.

The winter season is held in a traditional way with a particular focus on weekend tours, winter vacations and New Years celebrations. It can be noted that the recreational resources on the southern slopes of the Chimgan ridge, in the vicinity of the city of Yangiabad, have returned to the tourist orbit of Uzbekistan. As an example of the restoration and formation of a new tourist infrastructure, one can cite the capital reconstruction of a tourist center in the eponymous ski resort "Yangiabad" with a newly equipped ski track and a drag lift.
