Climbing up the 100-step staircase of the minaret should be on the top list of the things to do in Khiva. You get incredible views from atop the minaret. The space at the top is quite cramped so if you are a big group, you may split to two groups, otherwise, you wouldn't have space for moving around.

This is a small nine meter high minaret east of the Arc and is the sole surviving remains of a mosque by the same name. The mosque was destroyed in the 1930's by Stalinist forces to limit religious activity.

Excellent view around with a double humped camel for viewing and an open air restaurant catering to mouth watering plov The marriages that take place all over during the summer ... The walled in city with rich seat of learnings and incredible experience of watching the orange sun sets and pink dawns So many ladies working on wool socks which are really warm and just so so beautiful presents

Make sure that you visit late afternoon when the sun is not so strong for the best views. Remember that the city is very much dominated by sand coloured buildings and in the strong sunlight, the view is not so impressive. Go later and you won’t be disappointed. The climb is quite precarious a narrow, winding, uneven staircase. Difficult to pass people coming down. Take a head torch as it’s dark and this will help considerably. Do it though - the views are fabulous!

The stairs can be a bit uneven and you should have a flashlight or the light of your cellphone turned on for the dark. The view from the top is nice but not jaw dropping.
