A hiking path leads to a ranger’s refuge in Beldersay in the Chatkal Mountains. It’s fair to say that the accessible terrain in Uzbekistan would be limited if you were only to use the pisted trails. But the freeriding potential seems endless.
How safe the mountains are is highly dependent on conditions obviously but I enjoyed some epic knee-deep descents.
Chimgan was gentler, while Beldersay had steeper slopes and better snow. But both had plenty to offer!
