The history of Termez, one of the oldest cities in all Central Asia, is mysterious and diverse. Ancient Buddhist temples, a Sufi retreat center, burial grounds of once powerful empires, unusual architecture and Islamic pilgrimage sites leave even the casual observer filled with a sense of wonder at the peoples, empires and belief systems that once flourished in this quiet corner of modern-day Uzbekistan.
The Termez City Tour is an excellent choice for adventurous travelers who would like to delve deeper into the history of this fascinating city. Many of the most noteworthy ruins are only accessible by car on little-traveled roads outside of Termez proper, with little to no written descriptions or English-speaking guides available on site. On the Termez City Tour you’ll be accompanied by a driver familiar with the roads and a tour guide, fluent in English, who’s knowledgeable in the facts and legends surrounding each location.
