“I've known rivers:
I've known rivers ancient as the world and older than the flow of human blood in human veins. My soul has grown deep like the rivers” 

Langston Hughes.

Tours across historical places of Tashkent region.

In 8 kilometers from a recreation area of Beldersay there is a monument of a prehistoric era - Beldersay petroglyphs. Sometimes they are called by Kumbel petroglyphs. Kumbel petroglyphs - this rock painting located at the height of 2450 meters.
Petroglyphs are not investigated and materials on them are still unknown to the world. The age of rock painting on a crest of the Beldersay slope remains a big question. Big height, long-term influence of the sun in the summer and snow in the winter, considerably complicate determination of their age.
Presumably, the age of rock paintings varies from 6 to 10 thousand years, and belongs to the Neolithic era.
