Uzbekistan is located between the rivers Amu Darya and Syr Darya. The length of Amu Darya is 1437 km while Syr Darya is 2137 km. Zarafshan river is also very famous and has much important role although it is not as long as Amu Darya and Syr Darya. At times it played more important role than so-called both rivers. In Persian the word “Zarafshan” means “gold-bearing”. Ancient Greek historians also called it “Politiment” which means “multi-reversed”. Samarkand is the city that is located on the Zarafshan Valley.
There are also several mountains, mountain ranges of the Tien Shan and Pamir in Uzbekistan and between mountains there are plains and valleys. The mountain Kamchik that connects Tashkent oasis and the Fergana Valley is one of the most famous one while the mountain Tahtakaracha crossed by the road between Samarkand and Shakhrisabz. The wildlife in mountains is also diverse where many types of animals are common including foxes, porcupines, wolf, bear and others.
Today, one of the severe environmental disasters is shrinking of Aral Sea which is located between Kazakhstan and Uzbekistan, so visiting Uzbekistan you will have a chance to witness this disaster yourself.
The lake was the fourth largest lake in the world. It was the main source of water for many places. However as the lake dried up, communities and fisheries collapsed since they were dependent on the Aral Sea. The increasingly salty water became polluted and people had to use fertilizer and pesticides, agricultural chemicals were used. The salty dust blew off the lakebed and settled onto fields, degrading the soil.
