Tour to Urgut and Silk Carpet Factory

For a day-tour of something different, try this trip out of Samarkand. The first stop is in the small town of Urgut, where you’ll visit Chor-Chinor, an old garden of sycamore trees (some of which are almost a thousand years old), and a bazaar where you can find antique crafts. Return back to Samarkand to tour the Silk Carpet Factory, where you can learn how carpets are made and even buy one for yourself.


Tour itinerary:

Our guide and driver will meet you at your hotel in Samarkand. Depart Samarkand and drive to Chor-Chinor garden (50 km., 1 h.). Due to unfavorable road conditions the vehicle needs to be changed to a local taxi (10min drive). Visit the garden with old sycamores, the mosque and the spring water. Then drive to Urgut bazaar, local oriental marketplace where you will find items with a very eastern flavor. Although it is open every day excluding Monday and Thursday, Sunday is the best to visit. In afternoon return to Samarkand and visit Samarkand Silk Carpet Factory. Watch the process of making the silk carpets, various silk products and visit the factory's local shop. Transfer to the hotel. End of the tour.
Duration of the tour: 6-7 hours
