How to find our Homestays 

The most comfortable, but not the cheapest means of transport to the homestays in the Nuratau Mountains is a taxi. Negotiate the price with the driver before you leave and make sure he knows where you want to go. You can save costs by sharing the taxi on parts of the route with other passengers. If you ask in advance, we can also arrange a private transport to our homestays. 

From Tashkent to the Nuratau Mountain villages And Back 

From Tashkent Olmazor (old Sobir Rahimov) metro and bus station to Yangiqishloq (often called by its old name Forish) there is no direct public bus connection from Tashkent to Yangiqishloq, so we advise you to use one of the following options:

Option A:

A shared taxi / minibus  from Tashkent to Jizzakh costs about 15.000 to 20.000 UZS/person. From the Olmachi bus/taxi rank in Jizzakh, at the main Samarkand-Tashkent highway, take a town shared taxi to the Gorod bus station in Jizzakh (price 1000-1500 UZS/person) from where minibuses and shared taxis leave for Forish. At the Gorod bus/taxi rank take a minibus or a shared taxi to Yangiqishloq 5.000 to 7.000 UBS/person. 

Option B:
Direct shared taxi from Tashkent to Yangiqishloq costs about 25.000 to 30.000 UZS/person (4 people sharing). There are only few shared taxis to Yangiqishloq every day so you should be in Olmozor bus station latest at 10 AM. All Yangiqishloq drivers know our Tourist Information Centre so you will be brought straight to our office.

You can also negotiate with the driver to drop you directly at the village of your destination.
If you plan to take Option B, please let us know to reserve a seat for you in a shared taxi in advance. 

In Yangiqishloq (Forish) village, please visit in at the Responsible Travel office to settle your bills. We can also assist you to negotiate a fair price for the taxi to the respective village.
