Itinerary: Samarkand (or Bukhara) – Nurata – Yurt camp – Samarkand

The Kyzylkum desert stretches east to the Syr Darya River occupying almost the entire territory of in ancient times called Maverannahr or Transoxiana. A thousand years ago the famous Silk Road from China to Europe passed through Kyzylkum desert. Only the ruins of ancient palaces and fortresses and destroyed abandoned canals recall the eventful history of the lands lying between the two rivers.

On our tour you will be able to go through the paths of ancient caravans, find yourself several centuries ago, when the only means of transportation was a “desert ship” – a camel. You will see the main “pearl of the desert” – Lake Aydarkul, where you can swim or fish; you will live in a real yurt and ride Bactrian camels (Camelus bactrianus).

During the tour you will have the opportunity to:
