Visit to Parkent solar furnace this Wednesday (12.10)

Post by sebhoff »

I’m planning to visit the Parkent solar furnace from Tashkent this Wednesday (12.10). Anyone interested in sharing the cost (Yandex taxi to and fro, waiting time and basic cost of the tour)? See https://adventuresoflilnicki.com/solar- ... zbekistan/

I had no idea about the existence of this place but it looks super cool! I'd love to go but I'll only get to Tashkent on Thursday night, so Friday is the earliest I could go. Would you be able to wait for me?

Update: Didn't go in the end. First of all, I couldn't get anyone there on the phone to confirm that they have someone who can speak English (my Russian is passable, but not really good enough for this) and secondly, my hotel told me that Yandex drivers wouldn't drive that far out of town, and even if, they wouldn't wait for you before taking you back. They simply don't make enough money waiting. So - too many insecurities, and I chickened out. I'm sure I'll be in Tashkent again at some stage - maybe next time.
So if you want to go this Friday, perhaps first check with locals about the Yandex option(s). If you manage to do it, perhaps you could report back? Thanks!
