Travel by private bus or minibus, internal flight and camel.
9 nights standard hotels, all en suite, 1 night basic yurt (tent), basic shared washing facilities.
10 breakfasts, 2 lunches and 1 dinner included.
This is a generally undemanding trip with reasonable roads for the most part and time for sightseeing.
Most of the accommodation is modest but clean, mostly with private facilities.
This is an extremely rewarding trip for those wishing to get to the heart of Central Asia and who are prepared to deal with a long days drive (day 4) on a bad desert road, early starts/long days and hot (but also sometimes rather cold) temperatures. However, it must not be forgotten that until 1991 Uzbekistan was part of the USSR and tourist services and facilities can still be patchy and erratic. Tolerance and flexibility are required, and for this you will be rewarded with an insight into local life.
The camel ride at Aidarkul Lake is optional and usually people walk alongside the camles after an initial 20-30min ride.
Normal group size and age
Normally 6 to 16, plus local leader, driver and and local staff. Minimum age 16.
The vast majority of Exodus adventures are adult group holidays. Groups are always small in size. We strongly believe that this adherence to small groups means a better experience for all; more time with your guide, less waiting around and a reduced impact on the communities and environments visited.
Each group is generally made up of like-minded travellers - with singles, couples and friends all joining in together. All these trips are suitable for single travellers, but if you prefer to travel with clients booking individually, please see our Solo Departures page.
In order to provide a more accurate grading system, where a trip falls between two grades we use an intermediate or split grade, for example Leisurely/Moderate. Occasionally, there are optional activities available en route, in this case the optional grade is indicated in brackets, for example Grade Challenging (climb Tough+). Clearly, conditions may differ from region-to-region or month-to-month and as such the information given on these pages is designed to act as a guide only. In all cases you should refer to the respective holiday's Trip Notes for further details.
Culture: Let Exodus show you a different side to many of the world's greatest cultural attractions.
