Tour itinerary:

09:00 – 11:00 In the morning, a guide and driver will meet you at your hotel. You'll then travel from Tashkent to Paltau (110 km). Watch as the tall buildings and broad streets of the capital give way to a winding road through the mountains. After a picturesque two-hour drive along the Chimgan mountains and Charvak Lake, you'll reach a border post where you'll complete entry formalities and pay for your national park tickets.

11:00 – 11:20 A short drive to the entrance of the Chukuraksu Gorge (5 km). The road quality worsens, signaling your departure from civilization. Disembark for a brief guide-led orientation on hiking rules. 11:20 – 12:20 Trek to Chukuraksu Waterfall (2 km). The trail, narrow and winding along a pristine river, occasionally becomes steep and winds through thorny blackberry thickets. This exhilarating journey culminates with a 20-meter waterfall, where water cascades over rocks, creating a rainbow on sunny days. Locally known as "Bride's Veil" due to its resemblance to a bridal veil when the droplets glisten, it's a perfect spot for a memorable photo before retracing your steps back to the road.

12:20 – 13:20 Returning to the car, continue your walk along the Chatkal River, upstream. A 10-15 minute walk reveals an old pedestrian bridge over the turbulent Chatkal, a sight reserved for the adventurous. Enjoy stunning views from the cliffs and gorges, marking the end of the walking part of the tour.

13:20 – 14:00 Start the journey back. Enjoy the scenic drive to Hodjikent along the Charvak Reservoir (33 km). Descend the serpentine road near the dam and stop for lunch at one of Hodjikent's restaurants or cafes.

14:00 – 15:30 Lunch. On the outskirts of Hodjikent, near the reservoir dam, numerous cafes and restaurants offer a rest stop for tourists. Here you'll find a wide range of Uzbek dishes: various types of pilaf, soups, kebabs, fried fish, fresh vegetable salads, compotes, dairy products, and more, all particularly delightful when enjoyed outdoors. After lunch, enjoy a short excursion to ancient chinar trees, a small fish pond, and a rock with several-thousand-year-old petroglyphs, just a two-minute walk away.

15:30 – 17:00 Return to Tashkent (70 km) via a fast highway. You will be dropped off at your hotel, concluding your Chukuraksu Waterfall tour.
