Voyage inoubliable en Ouzbékistan, …. Que du bonheur entre la gentillesse des gens et la beauté des villes avec leurs medersas,.. Voyage que je recommande, tant par l’organisation que l’accueil,… À faire lors de la période des coquelicots, sublime paysage.

Je garde ce pays un souvenir merveilleux. On est rapidement subjugué par les paysages de montagnes majestueuses et les steppes infinies. On est plongé dans le passé en parcourant les routes de la soie où se mêlent l’orient et l’occident. La richesse de l’histoire et de la culture Ouzbeks sont à découvrir à travers les visites des villes de Khiva, de Boukhara et de Samarcande, des rues anciennes ou d’une soirée autour d’un feu de bois dans la steppe. J’ai adoré également la gentillesse des habitants, souriants et toujours prêts à se faire prendre en photos avec nous et l’esprit de tolérance au sein de cette population aux origines multiples et aux croyances différentes! L’Ouzbekistan est un pays moderne aussi avec des villes qui, si elles conservent une histoire soviétique, se modernisent et sont déjà de plain-pied dans le troisième millénaire. Ce pays entre tradition et modernité a été pour moi une vrai découverte et j’en conserve une grande nostalgie! Alors n’hésitez pas ! Allez découvrir l’Asie centrale et surtout l’Ouzbekistan!

A luglio 2017 abbiamo viaggiato lungo le strade dell’Uzbekistan, alla scoperta del passato glorioso di questa terra. Khiva, raccolta tra le sue imponenti mura millenarie; Bukhara dove «la luce nasce dalla terra»(un aforisma dell’Oriente islamico), i coloratissimi mercati e le splendide costruzioni di Samarcanda sono state le nostre incantevoli tappe. L’incontro con un popolo gentile ed amichevole,resterà per noi un ricordo indimenticabile.

Nous avons parcouru L’Ouzbékistan sur la route de la Soie pendant 2 semaines fin octobre 2013. Les étapes de notre périple étaient : Tashkent, Noukous (en avion), la Mer d’Aral, Khiva, Boukhara, Samarcand, Tersak et retour à Tashkent. Ce pays présente des paysages et un patrimoine exceptionnels. Le peuple est très accueillant et chaleureux. Nous avons fait des rencontres inoubliables : sur un champ de coton, dans l’école d’un village ou encore sur les marchés. Nous avons eu la chance d’avoir un guide en permanence qui nous a révélé toutes les richesses des endroits que nous avons pu visité. Son organisation était sans faille tant sur la diversité des hébergements : hôtels, yourte, logements chez l’habitant, mai aussi sur le choix des restaurants et des menus proposés qui nous ont permis de goûter à une pléiade de savoureux plats ouzbèks.

«Voyager en Ouzbekistan c’est trouver le dépaysement que le touriste recherche, rencontrer des gens très accueillants , découvrir des sites historiques qui peuvent remonter jusqu’au Moyen Age à l’époque de la Route de la Soie, s’aventurer dans le désert pour atteindre la mer d’Aral qui s’assèche mais y découvrir à sa place des falaises et des canyons magnifiques , bref un voyage à conseiller à ceux qui veulent sortir hors des sentiers battus».  Pour organiser un voyage en groupe ou en individuel, je peux vous recommander Samarkand Voyages. Tour-operateur est ouzbek , d’une grande disponibilité, parle français,  aime et connait très bien son pays.

Nous avons séjourné 12 jours en Ouzbékistan. Notre guide dont les coordonnées nous avaient été communiquées par une amie a été d’une totale efficacité. D’emblée nous avons été surpris qu’il ne nous demande pas d’arrhes pour préparer le voyage (nous étions huit). Sur place, il a fait preuve d’une grande gentillesse, étant prévenant, adaptant les efforts à nos capacités. Il parle un bon français. Il est réactif, capable de modifier un programme au dernier moment parce qu’un événement imprévu est survenu. Le guide est particulièrement consciencieux et généreux ; un soir il nous a accompagnés à un spectacle non prévu au programme dont il nous avait vanté les qualités et nous avons emprunté le minibus sans aucun supplément. C’est un homme qui aime et connait parfaitement son pays, son économie, son histoire, ses traditions, ses mœurs. Il en parle avec passion, mais sans « langue de bois », là encore en s’adaptant à nos attentes. Il est toujours souriant et de bon humeur. Bref, je vous recommande vivement cette agence de voyages avec lequel nous avons tous passé un voyage merveilleux.

La scorsa estate (2017) abbiamo deciso di visitare i paesi dell’Asia centrale KAZAKHSTAN-UZBEKISTAN-TURKMENISTAN., con una particolare attenzione alla „via della seta“ e alle tre città carovaniere di Khiva, Bukhara e Samarcanda. Ci siamo rivolti quindi all’agenzia di Samarkand Voyages per avere una pianificazione di viaggio ed un’assistenza completa visto che siamo una famiglia (con un figlio di 13 anni) e avevamo letto che in quei posti non tutti parlano inglese ma solo il russo. La guida, che parla benissimo italiano seppur autodidatta, e ci è stato sempre vicino con un’assistenza attenta e completa durante tutto il giorno. Quindi vi consigliamo di rivolgervi a questa agenzia di viaggi per un preventivo personalizzato e non abbiate paura di visitare l’asia centrale: ci siamo sentiti più sicuri là che in alcune zone dell’Italia ed Europa. Non ci resta che augurarvi buon viaggio!
