Tour itinerary:

Day 1: Tashkent – Beldersay – Avenue Park Hotel
 
9-00 – 10-30: Transfer from Tashkent to the Beldersay tract to the starting point of the active part of the tour. The transfer ends on the bank of the Marble River, the main tributary of the Beldersay river (1550 m.). 10-30 – 12-00: Passing from the road to the lunch place along the bed of the Marble River. (1750 m.) The river got its name – Marble (Mramornaya) – because of the numerous outcrops of calcareous deposits forming the riverbed. In some places there are inclusions of fossilized shells and traces of ancient vegetation on the rocks - evidence that this place was once the bottom of an ancient sea. The trail winds along the bed of the Marble River alternately passing from one bank to the other. After 1.5 hours of walking, we will reach a small grove, where we will stop for lunch and rest. On the way we will see 2 waterfalls and small baths washed in basalt rock. The climb is 200m. 12-00 – 13-00: Lunch. 13-00 – 14-30: Descent to the road through the "Sunny Glade". The descent passes along a mountain path through juniper and mixed forest and ends at the lower station of the cable car (1550 m.). 14-30 – 15-15: Transfer to the Avenue Park Hotel. Check in. Free time.
Day 2: Avenue Park – Gulkam Gorge – Khojikent – Tashkent
 
9-00 – 9-30: Transfer from the hotel to the confluence of the Mazarsai and Gulkamsai rivers (1200 m.). 9-30 – 12-30: Walk to Gulkam gorge. Here you can enjoy the magnificent views of the Gulkam gorge, their sheer cliffs, as well as "baths" on the cascade of waterfalls.
