Flight from Tashkent to Khiva - Uzbekistan 4K Travel Channel
Again, the aircraft starts early in the morning just around 5 am. Our destination is Khiva, which does not have its own airport. Correctly, it should read Flight from Tashkent to Urgench, the provincial capital of Khwarezm. From there it is approximately 40 km to Khiva.
Most of the flight goes above the Kyzylkum Desert, which borders on the green settlement area around Tashkent.
Since Tashkent airport is located less than 20 km from the border of Kazakhstan, it is not surprising we fly for a short distance across the state territory of Kazakhstan. The city of Shardara, located at the reservoir of the same name and at the estuary of the Syrdaja, can be seen from the plane very well.
Generally one always imagines the desert to be empty, but in reality, it looks a little different. Again and again, mining activities in the desert are recognizable from the airplane, since the Kyzylkum is regarded as very rich in raw materials. Uzbekistan belongs to the most important gold producing countries worldwide.
In many places, the desert has a very sparse vegetation, but often enough for the breeding of goats. For thousands of years, people have been leaving their mark on the desert, as the petroglyphs found here prove.
After we flew over the desert, the green fertile valley of the Amurdarja lies below us. Many canals cross the valley and allow the rich cultivation of cotton. Some interpretations consider the Amurdarja as one of the headstreams of the Garden of Eden (Gichon).
After landing, the father of Kadam Vaisov, the head of Registon Travel, picks us up at the airport. The father is also the founder of the travel agency.
On a long straight avenue, lined with modern buildings, we traverse Urgench, past the magnificent buildings of the provincial administration , and quickly reach the city limits. Through agricultural areas, we drive to Xiva. There we recognize the historic district by the mighty city walls.
During our journey, we have chosen reasonable-priced overnight accommodations, and stay in a bed and breakfast

Wieder startet das Flugzeug früh am Morgen um ca. 5 Uhr. Unser Ziel ist Xiva, das aber keinen eigenen Flughafen hat. Richtiger(B & B). As a condition, we have made, that the rooms have their own shower, which was the case for all our accommodations. Iweise müsste es heißen „Flug von Taschkent nach Urganch, der Provinzhauptstadt von Choresmien. Von dort aus sind es ungefähr 40 km bis nach Xiva.
Der größte Teil des Fluges führt über die Wüste Kysylkum, die sich scharf vom grünen Siedlungsgebiet um Taschkent abgrenzt.
Da der Flughafen von Taschkent nur knapp 20 km von der Grenze Kasachstans entfernt liegt, verwundert es nicht, dass der Flug auch ein kurzes Stück über das Staatsgebiet von Kasachstan führt. Die Stadt Schardara, die am gleichnamigen Stausee und am Mündungsgebiet der Syrdaja liegt, ist aus dem Flugzeug sehr gut zu erkennen.
In der Regel stellt man sich die Wüste immer leer vor, die Realität sieht aber etwas anders aus. Auch aus dem Flugzeug sind immer wieder Bergbauaktivitäten in der Wüste erkennbar, da die Kysylkum als sehr rohstoffreich gilt. Usbekistan gehört zu den wichtigsten Gold-Förderländern weltweit.
An vielen Stellen besitzt die Wüste auch eine sehr spärliche Vegetation, die aber oft für die Zucht von Ziegen ausreicht. Bereits seit tausenden Jahren hinterlassen immer wieder Menschen ihre Spuren in der Wüste, wie die vielfach gefundenen Petroglyphen beweisen.
Nachdem wir die Wüste überquert haben liegt unter uns das grüne fruchtbare Tal des Amurdarja, das auch von vielen Kanälen durchzogen ist, um den reichhaltigen Baumwollanbau zu ermöglichen. Der Amurdarja gilt in manchen Deutungen auch als einer der vier Quellflüsse des Garten Eden (Gichon).
Nach der Landung werden wir vom Vater von Kadam Vaisov, dem Chef von Registon Travel am Flughafen abgeholt. Der Vater ist auch der Gründer der Reiseagentur.
Auf einer langen geraden Allee, die von modernen Gebäuden gesäumt wird, durchqueren wir Urganch, vorbei an den prächtigen Gebäuden der Provinzverwaltung, und erreichen rasch wieder die Stadtgrenze. Durch landwirtschaftlich genutzte Landstriche fahren wir weiter direkt nach Xiva. Dort erkennen wir rasch das historische Viertel an den mächtigen Stadtmauern.
Für unsere Reise haben günstige Übernachtungen gewählt, so dass wir in einem Bed & Breakfast (B&B) untergebracht werden. Zur Bedingung haben wir aber gemacht, dass die Zimmer über eine eigene Dusche verfügen müssten, was überall gewährleistet wird.

VIDEO TRANSCRIPTION (HIGHLIGHTS)
00:00 – INTRO
More than 2,000 years ago, the great trade routes that linked Europe and China opened Central Asia to foreign cultures, customs and religions. MIR's iconic tour, Journey Through Central Asia: The Five 'Stans, is a modern-day caravan on an epic Silk Road journey to five of these exotic countries: Kazakhstan, Kyrgyzstan, Tajikistan, Uzbekistan, and Turkmenistan.
01:44 – KAZAKHSTAN
Kazakhstan is the largest and richest of the five 'Stans. We visit the country's former capital, Almaty, known as the Capital of Apples; Zenkov Cathedral; as well as a falcon farm for an up-close look at these beautiful birds used in hunting.
02:38 – KYRGYZSTAN
Mountainous, unspoiled Kyrgyzstan is Central Asia's best-kept secret. We visit Lake Issyk-kul; learn about horses and traditional horse games; visit Burana Tower; and in the country's capital, Bishkek, we listen to a portion of the famous poem, Epic of Manus – with nearly half-a-million verses.
04:42 – TAJIKISTAN
Tajikistan is a country infused with the influence of Persia, Islam, and Russia. We visit the 2,000-year-old city of Khujand; in this old Silk Road town we explore the colorful covered Panjshanbe Bazaar.
05:06 – UZBEKISTAN
Some of the most famous UNESCO-listed Silk Road sights are in Uzbekistan. We visit Osh and Rishtan in Fergana Valley; explore the country's capital, Tashkent; wander through Samarkand, known as the Crossroad of Cultures with Registan Square's blue-tiled mosaics, mosques, and madrassahs; and see Shakhrisabze, birthplace of Tamerlane the Conqueror. Bukhara was an oasis in the desert for Silk Road camel caravans long ago, and still is for modern travelers today. In Khiva, the Old Town called Ichon Qala looks much as it did centuries ago, while Nukus is known for its once-banned avant-garde Soviet art at the Savitsky Museum.
07:56 – TURKMENISTAN
Turkmenistan is a country of tribal culture and camels as well as modern cities and transportation. We visit three UNESCO-listed sites: Khorezm's Kunya Urgench and Kutlug-Timur Minaret, Merv, and the 2,000-year-old city of Nisa. The tour ends in Turkmenistan's capital of Ashgabat, filled with white marble buildings, as well as a nearby visit to an Akhal-Teke horse-breeding farm.
Central Asia / Uzbekistan (Highlights 2018) Part 31
Welcome to my travelchannel. ☛☛☞☛
On my channel you can find more than 1000 films of almost 80 countries. See the playlist on my youtube channel.Enjoy!
Uzbekistan has an area of 447,400 square kilometres (172,700 sq mi). It is the 56th largest country in the world by area and the 42nd by population. Among the CIS countries, it is the 4th largest by area and the 2nd largest by population.
Uzbekistan lies between latitudes 37° and 46° N, and longitudes 56° and 74° E. It stretches 1,425 kilometres (885 mi) from west to east and 930 kilometres (580 mi) from north to south. Bordering Kazakhstan and the Aral Sea to the north and northwest, Turkmenistan to the southwest, Tajikistan to the southeast, and Kyrgyzstan to the northeast, Uzbekistan is one of the largest Central Asian states and the only Central Asian state to border all the other four. Uzbekistan also shares a short border (less than 150 km or 93 mi) with Afghanistan to the south.
Uzbekistan is a dry, landlocked country. It is one of two doubly landlocked countries in the world (that is, a country completely surrounded by landlocked countries), the other being Liechtenstein. In addition, due to its location within a series of endorheic basins, none of its rivers lead to the sea. Less than 10% of its territory is intensively cultivated irrigated land in river valleys and oases. The rest is vast desert (Kyzyl Kum) and mountains.
The highest point in Uzbekistan is the Khazret Sultan, at 4,643 metres (15,233 ft) above sea level, in the southern part of the Gissar Range in Surkhandarya Province, on the border with Tajikistan, just northwest of Dushanbe (formerly called Peak of the 22nd Congress of the Communist Party).
The climate in Uzbekistan is continental, with little precipitation expected annually (100–200 millimetres, or 3.9–7.9 inches). The average summer high temperature tends to be 40 °C (104 °F), while the average winter low temperature is around −23 °C (−9 °F).

Surkhandarya region is located in the southern part of Uzbekistan, this is a special, wonderful land with a wide variety of landscapes. Thanks to a favorable geographical location the civilization in these places flourished since ancient times and numerous historical changes have left a unique touch to local cities.
The everyday life of Baysun residents strikes tourists with its special color, it is studied by many historians and ethnographers. Houses here are decorated with locally carpets called suzane, national costumes are decorated with unusual ornaments that are embroidered by hand. To serve the tables they also use locally produced and painted dishes.
Local people carefully preserved the folklore traditions in its original form passing them from generation to generation. Weddings, funerals, births and celebrations are accompanied by original and vivid rituals that exist only in this area. Here, any important event in the life of people is accompanied by a complex ritual songs and dances. The Muslim mentality, which displaced from the minds of Uzbeks many pagan traditions, did not affect the local residents that much and who still perform make-it-rain ritual, picking-up mountain tulips celebration and many other rituals.
The value of Baysun's traditions is so great that this region was listed by UNESCO in 2001 in Masterpieces of the Oral and Intangible Heritage of Humanity, which included only 19 cultural and historical areas around the world.
Not far from Baysun is the Surkhan Reserve, which is aimed to preserve the diversity of the region's fauna and flora. Here, tourists can touch the real fossils left by dinosaurs that lived in this area millions of years ago. Neolithic and Mesolithic drawings of ancient people are found in the local rocks.
Climbing the mountains, tourists can visit Teshik-Tash cave, which is known all over the world thanks to the remains of a Neanderthal child found here in 1938, the reconstruction of which is one of the most recognizable images of an ancient man in the world. For a long time, it was believed that the remains belonged to the boy, but later studies discovered new facts - in fact, the skeleton belongs to the girl 8-10 years old. The animal bones found nearby suggest that it was not just a burial, but a real funeral ritual. According to the reconstruction by Russian anthropologist M. A. Gerasimov, a sculptural portrait was created, which is kept in the Termez Museum.
Nearby is the cave of Amir Temur, but research works are not possible at the moment because of the constantly crumbling rock. Legends say that the saber of one of the greatest commanders of Uzbekistan is buried in this cave.
The mountain ranges around Baysun are a real storehouse of stories and legends. One of them is also related with the cave, which is called Zarautsay. As the rumor says, here are hidden the treasures of the famous navigator and traveler Marco Polo. He was going to save them from robbers who attacked his caravan while following the Silk Road. So far treasures were not found, but the researchers discovered ancient writings on the walls, dated from various periods - from the Paleolithic to the Bronze Age.
Another legend is about saint Omonkhona spring that is visited by pilgrims from all over Uzbekistan to drink its soul-cleansing water, which has medicinal properties. The water of the source heals indeed, since it is mineralized naturally and cures diseases of the liver and kidneys.
Baysun is the beautiful mountainous wild land, the lost world of medieval villages and titanic landscapes. In fact, this is a whole country, where it would be worth spending a few days and will undoubtedly leave one of the strongest impressions of Central Asia.
Uzbek money: It's easy to feel rich in Uzbekistan
Money is a complicated issue in Uzbekistan, due to the black market. The official rate of the Uzbek som is kept artificially high, and so everyone uses the black market, where your dollars get you approximately 30% more som. And it's easy to feel rich in Uzbekistan – the highest Uzbek note (1000S) is worth less than US$0.50 on the black market. One US$100 bill turns into a plastic bag full of ragged bills, usually tied together with a rubber band.
Bring US dollars with you to Uzbekistan. Euros can also be changed, but it's not as easy. Outside a few larger banks in Tashkent other currencies are totally useless.
A select few ATMs can be found in Tashkent, but you can't rely on them having cash in them. In the provinces, cash advances are usually possible at Asaka Bank for MasterCard holders and at the National Bank of Uzbekistan for Visa cardholders. Commission is 1% to 2% on MasterCard advances and 1% to 4% on Visa card advances. The NBU is also usually the best bet for cashing travellers cheques.
Short visit of Tachkent (Uzbekistan)
(EN) Tashkent is the capital of Uzbekistan and of the Tashkent Province.
(F) Tachkent, est une métropole d'Asie centrale, capitale de l'Ouzbékistan. Située à l'est du pays, à quelques dizaines de kilomètres de la frontière kazakh, elle compte aujourd'hui plus de 2,7 millions d'habitants (2007). Administrativement, elle est à la fois une ville (Toshkent Shahri) et la capitale de la province de Tachkent (Toshkent Viloyati).
Son nom signifie « citadelle de pierre » (taš : pierre en turc + kand, kent : ville, un mot centre-asiatique). Elle a aussi porté, dans le passé, les noms de Tchatch, Chach (Shash) et Binkent. Les deux premiers sont apparentés au mot taš qui signifie « pierre », le deuxième est aussi à l'origine des mots chéchia et chèche.
Les sources ne concordent pas à propos de l'âge de la ville car les preuves historiques sont rares. Selon les autorités ouzbèkes, Tachkent aurait 2 200 ans d'histoire en 2009, tandis qu'en 1983, les autorités soviétiques avaient célébré les 2 000 ans de la ville.

Bishkek, is the capital and largest city of Kyrgyzstan (Kyrgyz Republic). Bishkek is also the administrative centre of the Chuy Region. The province surrounds the city, although the city itself is not part of the province, but rather a province-level unit of Kyrgyzstan.
In 1991 the Kyrgyz parliament changed the capital's name to Bishkek.Bishkek is situated at an altitude of about 800 meters (2,600 ft), just off the northern fringe of the Kyrgyz Ala-Too range, an extension of the Tian Shan mountain range. These mountains rise to a height of 4,855 meters (15,928 ft) and provide a backdrop to the city. North of the city, a fertile and gently undulating steppe extends far north into neighboring Kazakhstan. The Chui River drains most of the area. Bishkek is connected to the Turkestan-Siberia Railway by a spur line.
Bishkek is a city of wide boulevards and marble-faced public buildings combined with numerous Soviet-style apartment blocks surrounding interior courtyards. There are also thousands of smaller privately built houses, mostly outside the city centre. Streets follow a grid pattern, with most flanked on both sides by narrow irrigation channels, watering innumerable trees to provide shade in the hot summers.
State Historical Museum, located in Ala-Too Square, the main city square.
State Museum of Applied Arts, containing examples of traditional Kyrgyz handicrafts
Frunze House Museum
Statue of Ivan Panfilov in the park near the White House.
An equestrian statue of Mikhail Frunze stands in a large park (Boulevard Erkindik) across from the train station.
The train station was built in 1946 by German prisoners of war and has survived since then without further renovation or repairs; most of those who built it perished and were buried in unmarked pits near the station.
The main government building, the White House, is a huge, seven story marble block and the former headquarters of the Communist Party of the Kirghiz SSR
At Ala-Too Square there is an independence monument where the changing of the guards may be watched.Osh bazaar, west of the city centre, is a large, picturesque produce market.
