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.

Up a steep dark winding set of uneven steps but the effort is worth it. You are rewarded with a magnificent view of the whole area. There is an entry fee. .75p !

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...

Wonderful view that is really worth to climb. A recommendation, though, make sure you're wearing the right shoes as the stairs are tall, narrow and very slippery. Your Khiva ticket won't get you there, you have to pay extra, about 2000 soms.

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