During this holiday the group will spend 2 nights in hotel accommodation in Khiva and 3 nights in guesthouse accommodation in Bukhara. We will then have 2 nights at different yurt camps, followed by 3 homestay nights at different villages in the Nurata and Zarafshan mountains. Please note that the sleeping arrangements in the yurts and homestays are communal, with up to 6 people sharing a room. Toilet and shower facilities are basic, but available in both yurts and homestays. Mattresses and bedding are also provided although we suggest everyone brings a light sleeping bag. The simplicity of arrangements is more than made up for by the warmth of the welcome from the local people. We then have 2 nights at a Samarkand guesthouse and 1 night at a hotel in Tashkent. The hotel and guesthouse accommodation is allocated on a twin-sharing basis and if you are travelling by yourself you will be paired up with another single client of the same sex. It is not possible to pre-book single rooms at any of the guesthouses used during this trip. You may be able to arrange a single room on arrival, depending on availability, and pay the difference to the trek leader.
