Issues of development of extreme and sports tourism were discussed
Tashkent, Uzbekistan (UzDaily.com) -- A meeting was held at the State Committee for Tourism Development to support extreme and other popular types of tourism in Uzbekistan and their further development.
It was attended by representatives of the Extreme Tourism Federation, the Aeronautics Federation and the Paragliding Federation. In recent years, significant reforms have been carried out in our country to develop sports, extreme and recreational tourism.
However, there are a number of other areas that require modern requirements and support. These include paragliding, hang-gliding, aeronautics, small aircraft, mountain tourism, MTV cycling, ice skating, motorcycle tourism, and autotourism. The meeting was held with the aim of developing extreme and active types of tourism.
As part of the event, the State Committee for Tourism Development proposed the Federation of Extreme and Mountain Tourism and the Federation of Aeronautics of Uzbekistan to create a modern International Center for the Development of Extreme and Active Tourism on the indicated territory. The need to create modern conditions for year-round reception and accommodation of pilots, active tourists and city guests was noted. The paradeltadrome "Yusufkhona", located on the border with the Charvak reservoir, has its own peculiarities, and the region has created climatic conditions for the development of active types of tourism, such as aeronautics, water tourism, mountain tourism and hiking.
Also during the meeting, the issue of implementing training programs for hotels, gyms for theoretical and practical training, ground handling systems, rescue services, medical institutions, parachuting and paragliding, water and active tourism was discussed.
During the negotiations, a set of issues related to the need to support this area, which has a close relationship between tourism and sports, was discussed. It was noted that it is necessary to study in depth foreign experience in the field, to attract foreign partners and investors to the development of these tourism industries.
It was also noted that for the Federation of Extreme and Mountain Tourism, it is necessary to allocate territory in the Chimgan region in order to develop a modern base for sports tourism, a school of climbers and guides and the constant organization of competitions, expeditions, sports trips, control over public flights and create first aid points.
In addition, the question was raised about the development of a curriculum for the school of instructors-guides, for the college of tourism, as well as sports sections on the basis of universities in the field of sports.
It should be noted that the development of this kind of extreme sports allows attracting tens of thousands of tourists to the country annually, and then strengthening the monetization of sports and tourism services.
