With their clean air, bright blue skies, beautiful waterfalls, and scent of pine trees and flowering herbs, the Yangiabad Mountains are a real treasure for hikers.The Yangiabad Tourist Lodge is located in the Chatkal Biosphere Reserve, about 120km (75 miles) from Tashkent, at an elevation of about 1,500m (5,000 feet). The lodge has guest rooms, a bar, a restaurant, and even a disco and an entertainment programme.
