Asraf village is located in one of the lush green mountain valleys of the Nuratau range. A crystal clear mountain brook passes through the property right in front of the house. The family has recently built separate house and an ablution block consisting of with two showers and two flush toilets. The house is built from local rocks and has four clean guest rooms furnished with tapchan mattresses. Yahshigul can accommodate up to sixteen people. Water is heated by solar energy. A spring provides the family and guests with pure, cold drinking water. In the shade of the big fruit trees in the garden, guests can chose either to relax on one of the three supas (sitting places built out of clay) or on a tapchan. One of these unique comfortable sitting, lying and eating facilities is placed across the rivulet. Reading a book, while listening to the gentle bubbling sound of the water, is a great way to rewind and recall all the impressions of your journey.
Bobojon’s family lives from subsistence farming. Hence, many types of fruit trees such as peach, apricot, apple, mulberry, pomegranate and walnuts and a lot of vegetables are grown in the huge garden. Guests will be spoiled by tasty dishes prepared from home grown products. Traditional music performances can easily be arranged for guests in the evening.
The homestay in Asraf village is a good starting point for short or long mountain hikes.
