Jizzakh Research Limited Liability Company is implementing an investment project worth 1 billion soums to organize agritourism in the Bakhmal state forestry area of Jizzakh region. As part of the project, a small hotel and a camping complex are being built.
Winter is not the tourist season in the mountainous region. However, preparations for the summer season in the tourist routes of the district have not stopped. Preparations for the reception of tourists in the direction of tourism, established by the limited liability company “Jizzakh Research” are also in full swing. Within the framework of this project, 10 people from the territory of Bakhmal village were provided with permanent jobs.
The results of the great attention paid in recent years to the development of tourism in our country can be seen in Bakhmal district, which is far from the center. The nature of the snow-covered foothills of the Turkestan mountain range may have been more beautiful than before, but tourists did not come. Because a tourist who comes to enjoy the mountain nature needs a road, places to live, eat, and the Internet. Previously, there was no such infrastructure here.
