LOST IN THE DESERT

Some of our trips give the opportunity to experience yurt stays in the deserts of Uzbekistan. Mostly it’s only one night stay and a light and easy acquaintance with one of the toughest living places created by mother nature. But we always have some folks who want to experience ultimate survival adventure, to feel the real atmosphere and the beauty of real nature, being in the middle of the desert, sometimes up to hundreds of kilometers from civilization. These challenging routes in the end of the tour may become an experience of a lifetime. No matter how frighteningly it may sound, we can assure you that you will have an excellent team of a professional local guides, camels, a driver with communication equipment and all other necessary outfits. We always let the decision to be made by you when it comes to choosing the difficulty level from an easy one day trip up to 5 days being “lost in the desert”. Our unique itineraries provide more then just “a sand and a walk” experience in the desert. Besides the wild life of the desert such as desert fox, hare, desert cat, grouse, bustard, desert monitor and tortoises, you will enjoy getting acquainted to the life of local ethnicities, traditional yurt building master class, experiencing local food, listening to the folk music, exploring the shores of Aydarkul Lake and much more.
