Charvak Reservoir, Tashkent

4.3
#2 of 8 in Parks in Uzbekistan
An artificial lake nestled in the foothills of the Tian Shan mountain range, Charvak Reservoir offers a range of activites, from hikes and picnics to more adventurous options. The reservoir resulted from the 1970 damming on the Chirchiq River. Today, it remains a popular hangout spot and weekend getaway for locals, with guesthouses and campsites along the scenic shore, a couple of sandy beaches, and a picturesque view of snow-capped peaks in the background. Have a barbecue along the water, explore the numerous surrounding hiking trails, or try your hand at boating, paragliding, or a number of other recreational activities. The lake's clear, placid waters are usually very chilly, but if you want, you can go for a swim.
