Owner: Habib Turdiev, Rohat Turdieva

Price: EUR 30 per person

This homestay in Eski (old) Forish is the least remote of all the homestays. It is relatively close to the central village of Forish (now renamed and signposted Bog’don) and has cell phone reception. As it is located only about one kilometre off the main road, it is easily accessible and can be used as a stopover point for trips to the Nuratau Mountains.

The “Porasht” homestay was established in 2008. It has two nicely decorated guest rooms, where up to 8 people can be accommodated on kurpacha mattresses. In a separate stone building, there are two rooms each with a shower and a flush toilet separated by a room with a hand washing basin. The host is very determined to provide good quality services to tourists. In the shady garden two tapchans invite guests to sit, eat and relax from their journey. You can also sit on a comfortable self-built swing chair under a mulberry tree.

Meals are prepared out of fruits and vegetables cultivated by the host family. If guests are interested to learn more about the work and everyday life of local farmers, the homestay owner can take them to his livestock farm, 12 km from Eski Forish, where cheese, butter, yoghurt, and brynza (dried cottage cheese balls) are produced.

The villagers of Eski Forish are very friendly and hospitable and enjoy having a chat with foreign guests. There are several interesting sights in and around the village. Tourists can visit a river passing through a beautiful mountain gorge and enjoy drinking cold spring water. From the homestay, you can undertake short or longer hikes into Soyibolo valley to enjoy the rich mountain flora and fauna.
