The area is famed for its fertile soil and has been its own kingdom in the past. The valley is made up of three provinces: Fergana, Namangen and Andijan. The Fergana Valley is also known to be the most Islamic of all the areas of Uzbekistan and visitors should note that a more modest dress code applies here than in other parts of the country.
