Rachima’s guesthouse is a perfect starting point for different types of hikes; one of the intense tour routs is a hike to a small lake located on the top of the mountains. The charming beauty of the lake contrasting with snowy peaks of the Nuratau Mountains and green meadows will impress the visitors. Particularly during the spring and autumn this is a perfect place for camping. There is an opportunity to do a combination of horse or donkey riding and hiking. While hiking in this area travelers will get a chance to watch huge birds of prey, such as Golden Eagles, Eurasian Griffons or Lammergeyers. Among the other sights of this territory are ancient ruins, mosques, rock paintings, steep valleys, rivers with rapids and high mountains to be mentioned. Alternatively, in Sentyab you can just sit under a walnut tree, drink tea, read a book, write postcards and reflect on the impressions of your Uzbekistan journey.
