Uzbekistan Satellite Map

Uzbekistan occupies an area of 447,400 square kilometers (172,700 sq mi). In comparison, it’s smaller than Turkmenistan but larger than Morocco. The Aral Sea was once the 4th largest lake in the world in the north of Uzbekistan.  But it is shrinking and has dried up in parts because of diverted water flow from the Soviet Union. Kyzylkum Desert is the 15th largest desert covering the central region of Uzbekistan. Whereas the Ustyurt Plateau is situated to the west. Uzbekistan’s most densely populated region is to the east side of the country.

For example, the Ustyurt Plateau lies in the northwest of Uzbekistan between the Aral Sea and the Amu Darya. Directly beside the plateau is the Turan Depression to the east. The most elevated region of Uzbekistan is the Gissar Range that stretches into Uzbekistan from Tajikistan. At 4,643 meters (15,233 ft), it is the highest peak in Uzbekistan, which is part of the Gissar Range in the Pamir Mountains.
