It’s important to make smart decisions while traveling, including choices that support local communities and protect the environment. Fortunately, there are plenty of sustainable tourism options in Uzbekistan. There are many guesthouses and homestays, especially in smaller villages, where the cost of the stay largely goes towards supporting local families. Check out tours to Aydarkul Lake (with stops at local villages), the Jeyran Ecocenter (home to threatened and endangered species), and sustainable tours to the Aral Sea, where tourism has grown to support villages where the fishing industry has been lost due to the receding waters.
