    Ferghana Valley

    by nepalgoods Written Aug 31, 2007

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    The Ferghana Valley begins in the Osh area in Kirgistan and is about 300km long and 150km wide. There are border-regions between Uzbekistan and Kirgistan or Tajikistan, which are still full of mines and sometimes dangerous.

    Ferghana Valley is sometimes called a valley and somtimes called the biggest and richest oasis in Central Asia. When you drive through the valley you'll see neither valley nor oasis. The landscape looks like a wide plain with cotton-fields, fruit-trees and rich cities. The snowcapped mountains of Tianshan and Alay Mountains can be seen in the distance.

    This area had been the northern part of the Sogdian kingdom about 2.500 years ago. In the Middle Ages Ferghana Valley has been an important part of the Great Silkroad from Samarkand to Kashgar (China).

    Visit the Museum of Local studies

    A cool exhibit of a cotten field

    It's okay, and has some English signs. I was charged 1000, instead of 500 like the new Lonely Planet Central Asia says...
    It's an eclectic collection which is the kind I like, though I didn't learn very much, which is too bad as the area is full of history. I guess it's living museum, displaying censorship and poor education. Hey, speaking of censorship, my geocities website is blocked in Fergana (like it was in all of China), but it wasn't blocked in Tashkent. Well, the museum is worth a buck to check it out (as well as teh huge park on it's front door...)
