Muhlima’s homestay in Sentyab village
Location: 50 km along the main road from Bog’don to Nurata, 5.9 km into the mountain valley.
Owner: Komil Davronov
Price: EUR 30 per person
Komil’s homestay was established in 2012. It is located on a lookout point on the banks of the Sentob River from where you have an excellent view of the mountains. The family has three guestrooms and can accommodate up to nine people. There is a flush toilet, an outdoor shower to be used in summer, and a hammam (hot bath) for the cold season. In the garden below the house, you can rest on one of several tapchans in the shade of big walnut trees, or dip your legs into the cold mountain brook. The meals in Komil’s homestay are prepared from the vegetables grown in a large garden in front of the house. Mr. Komil, the owner of this homestay usually entertains the guests by singing and playing the traditional musical instrument ‘Dutor’. During the spring months, you might be lucky to witness the silkworm rearing in the neighbourhoods.
This homestay is a good starting point for mountain hikes. There is a beautiful waterfall and ancient petroglyphs to be visited during a three and a half hour hike from the guest house. Breathtaking views will reward you for your efforts. For more compassionate hikers an eight-hour hike to the mountain lake Fazilman is recommended. This trip can also be undertaken on horseback or by donkey.
You may book your stay in the homestay through the office or by contacting the hosts directly (phone number: +99 899 7507655). The son of the homestay owner speaks basic English.
