Must visit on your Beldersay Tour
Not far from Tashkent in the outskirts of Chimgan and Beldersay recreation areas, there is a prehistoric monument – Beldersay petroglyphs. In some sources they are mentioned as Kumbel petroglyphs. These rock carvings situated at the height of 2450 meters (8000 feet) is one of many evidences of an ancient culture and life style of primitive people who lived on the territory of Uzbekistan and neighboring states.
The river and the ski resort Beldersay is located in Bostanlyk district of Tashkent region, 80 kilometres from Tashkent and 5 km from Chimgan tourist camp. While “Chimgan” is usually recommended for family holidays and for novice skiers, “Beldersay” is intended for more experienced athletes. On the territory of the resort built a first-class hotel and ski slopes. There are 2 cable cars –5 km long, lifting time -24 min, height difference of 565 m. and ski trial – about 1 km long, lifting time – 5 min., height difference -200 m).
The snow condition at Beldersay ski resort differs from the European one. The continental climate, the Himalayas on the one hand and Siberia on the other, provide extreme temperatures and heavy snowfall. The snow here is just great, dry and cold, great for skiing and, according to experts, is considered one of the best in the world.
Such monuments are dispersed over many Uzbekistan regions. They can be found in Chimgan, Hodjikent, Bashkilzilsay and other mountain areas. The most famous petroglyphs collection is, of course, the Sarmish-say canyon in the Nuratau mountains. However, while one rock carvings are investigated and are under the protection of corresponding organizations such as UNESCO, other are left neglected and suffer from vandalism actions (signs and ‘visit’ dates of light-minded tourists are carved over a thousand year pictures).
The Beldersay petroglyphs are situated relatively not far from the modern ‘civilization’ – 8 km from the Beldersay recreation area only. Some tours set themselves as an object to visit exactly these rock carvings.
Valley of Beldersay river is very beautiful and there are wonderful views of the Big Chimgan mountain, opening from the surrounding hills. There are several excellent places for campgrounds placing on the left bank of the river. Thus, it is a suitable place for tracking.
