Which order to visit the 'standard' Uzbekistan route in

Post by stevesayskanpai »

Hi all,

As part of a wider Central Asia trip we wish to travel from Tashkent to Samarkand to Bukhara to Khiva to Nukus/Muynaq and back to Tashkent. Our strong preference is for train travel, and we don't wish to take any flights.

We're wondering which of the following routes makes the most sense?

Tashkent - Khiva - Nukus/Muynaq - Khiva - Bukhara - Samarkand
Tashkent - Samarkand - Bukhara - Khiva - Nukus/Muqnaq - Khiva - Tashkent

As said above, where possible we want to take trains (https://www.seat61.com/Uzbekistan.htm)

Many thanks

You might want to take a look at our train page: http://caravanistan.com/transport/train/uzbekistan

It has the answer to your question, under rail network and tips on route planning.

Either Tashkent - Nukus - Khiva - Samarkand - Bukhara - Tashkent

or the other way around. This due to the fact that there is no train between Bukhara and Khiva.
