Yangiabad is quite a young town in Tashkent Province, located at distance of 100 km from Tashkent and 10 km from the industrial city of Angren, at an altitude of 1300 m in the foothills of Western Tien-Shan. Begin to build Yangiabad in the 1940s. The area around it was rich in uranium and silver, and the best mining specialists moved to live and work in town. It was designated closed strategically important zone of USSR. In the 1980s, minerals in the area ran low, and the towns population decreased considerably. At the turn of the century, the situation took a turn for the better. Yangiabad become a popular recreational zone. Today many Tashkent residents come to town, escaping from summer heat. Among them, there are a lot of hikers, mountain climbers, and lovers of various adventure sports. It is not surprising why they come: next to the town tower, the picturesque mountains of Chatkal Range; rivers Katta-Say and Dukent-Say deliver very clear water from glaciers, and Yangiabad itself is full of greenery. Walking along its streets, you may think you find yourself in Europe somewhere: most two-story houses were built in German architectural style by ethnic Germans who lived there in Soviet times. Yangiabad resembles an alpine German town, with its fantastically clear air, serenity, stunning mountain landscapes, unhurried lifestyle of locals-which is what most residents of bustling big cities are missing. Today, the town is largely populated with pensioners; most houses are used as dacha holiday homes by people from other Uzbekistan cities in summer. A number of very interesting mountaineering routes start in Yangiabad. The highest peaks near town are Babaytag and Shakhtyor. Tops of them offer stunning panoramas of Western Tien-Shan. Yangiabad mountains are a kingdom of steep cliffs. They are of various difficulty ratings and are often used for climbing training and competitions. In winter, skiers and snowboarders flock to town. They very much like the nearby wonderful 500-meter-long ski run equipped with a ski lift. There is a camp site up Katta-Say River at a distance of 4 km from town. Name after Yangiabad, it was built as far back as the 1970s. Today it is a modern, comfortable holiday center for 300 guests; it has a restaurant and bar; and they even organize dancing parties and show programs there. The center is open all year round: for hiking, mountaineering, swimming or angling in summer, enjoying the fresh most clear air of the area, and for skiing in winter. There is a spring with mineral water near town. The water is so good and useful that most guests try to take some of it back home. If you walk across the Dukent-Say River valley for about 10 km, you will see the avalanche research station of Central Asian Hydrometeorological Institute base in Tashkent. It helps miners to forecast avalanches and protect themselves in case they occur.
