Chapdara lakes TJ

Lake Chapdara or locally called Kuli Chapdara, the largest of the Alaudin Lakes (300 to 400 meters in diameter), which is part of a system consisting mainly of three large and several small lakes, connected by underground tributaries and outlets mountain waters. It is located in the Ayni region in the western part of the Gissar ridges of the Fan Mountains.

Char Minar UZ

Chor Minor or Char Minar is also known as the Madrasah of Khalif Niyaz-kul. It is located in an alley northeast of the Lyab-i Hauz complex. It is protected as a monument of cultural heritage and is also part of the historic center of the UNESCO World Heritage Site of Bukhara. In Tajik, the name of the monument means "four minarets", in reference to the four towers of the building.

The structure was built by Khalif Niyaz-kul, a wealthy inhabitant of Bukhara of Turkmen origin in 1807 during the reign of the Manghit dynasty. The function of this building is still not very clear. The minarets were not used for the call to prayer. Originally it was part of a madrasa complex, which was demolished. The building has no analogue in Bukhara architecture, and Niyazkul's inspiration and patterns are unclear.

Charvak Reservoir UZ

Charvak Reservoir would be a simple artificial reservoir, if not for its emerald waters against the backdrop of beautiful nature, so harmoniously framing the shores. In the background, the teeth of the Tien Shan Mountains are displayed, and the total length of the reservoir coastline is almost a hundred kilometers. This contributed to the fact that with the advent of the reservoir, the resort infrastructure began to actively develop: the best hotels in Uzbekistan, summer camps, boarding houses and tourist centers now operate on the coast, the entire coastal territory is divided into several large recreational areas.

Charyn canyon (Sharyn) KZ

Charyn Canyon is a picturesque deep gorge in Kazakhstan, stretching for 154 km along the Charyn river valley, not far from the border with China and Kyrgyzstan. The dried up bed of the ancient river, a unique natural monument, more than 12 million years old, fascinates with its cosmic landscapes. Given the size and geological features of the Charyn Canyon, it is often referred to as the "younger brother" of one of the largest gorges of the planet: the American Grand Canyon. We can also observe a Relic Forest of ash tree. Reddish cliffs and abysses that are similar to castle towers, depths from 150 to 300 m, impress everyone who has been here. The most visited and famous is the site of the canyon, called the "Valley of Castles". Enjoy a walk along a narrow valley with fantastic-shaped walls.

The capital is the village of Kanysh-Kyya, and the lower part of the valley is in the Besh-Aral nature reserve.

The Chatkal river is one of the most beautiful rivers for rafting, on the other hand tourist infrastructures are still very rare there.
On the other hand, the mineral resources are important there: lead, silver, zinc, antimony and building materials.

The natural parks located to the north and northwest of the valley benefit several species. The fauna is very particular and rich in the mountains. In the forests, among the wild fruit trees and bushes, live wild boars, foxes, bears, sometimes deer. The porcupine, the badger, the forest dormouse live in forest areas. The marten, sometimes the ermine and the weasel huddle near the rocks. High in the mountains graze Siberian goats, which are hunted by snow leopards. Groundhogs are everywhere. But above all there are a lot of birds here. The deciduous forests are rich in starlings, orioles, blackbirds, woodpeckers, goldfinches and nightingales. Magpies, coarse juniper, finches, mountain buntings live in juniper forests. On the rocks and the steep slopes nest doves, swifts and many birds of prey: vulture, kestrel, vulture, golden eagle and others. And stone placers are favorite places for partridges and grouse. Three types of fish are commonly found in mountain rivers: common marinka, Amu-Darya char, and Turkestan catfish.
