Trip report: Chimgan

Post by Jpinilla »

The mountains around Chimgan are breathtakingly beautiful and almost completely deserted. During our three days of trekking in early May 2015, we only saw two other groups of climbers and a herd of cows. Of all the fascinating places in Uzbekistan, this area was definitely the highlight of our trip.

For anyone planning to visit, there is a nice homestay in the village of Chimgan. It is run by a woman named Dinar (+998909260973) and offers comfortable accommodation, a delicious dinner, and registration for around $15. Both she and her husband can also give you advice about hiking trails, swimming, skiing, or onward transport.

Thank you very much for a useful contact! I was in Chimgan 2 years back, but did not strike out into the mountains beyond, we lived in a simple dacha and attended a bard festival. Will have to return for some serious hiking. Nice to see people exploring Uzbekistan beyond the main cities and the Aral Sea!

ps: moving this to the Uzbekistan forum.
