After a while we headed towards the Islam Hoja Minaret, which is the only one in the city you can climb. I paid the 100k soms (£7) and started climbing up the spiral staircase. Each step was very tall and there wasn't enough headroom to stand up straight. Also, if anyone was coming down you had to squeeze against the sides so they could pass. Once at the top though you had an amazing view over the city and it actually felt safe, after the initial shock of the height. Climbing down was more difficult than going up but there were no mishaps!

Use this minaret for your daily cardio and get a beautiful sceneray of Khiva. It's worth walking upstairs for this view.

I Cant remember how much it cost, but it wasnt much and it was a real highlight for me. The climb isnt that easy so you should have some level of fitness, I would recommend bringing a bottle of water (I didn't and I wished I did) and of course your CAMERA as you will get some beautiful shots!

The stairs are very narrow so you need to hope there isnt a big group coming down when you are going up.

Beautiful to look at, interesting (be cautious) to climb, with good views at the top. Personally I think the views from the watch tower are better tho. Not child friendly, steep and narrow stairs. Cost is 5000 som to go up.

Yes - you can climb this, and if in good health, you must! As expected the view from the top is breathtaking. Take care on the winding stairs...

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.

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.
