Tours in Muynak are without a doubt one-of-a-kind, a trip to an abandoned port city and ship graveyard. Muynak was located on the shores of the formerly prosperous Aral Sea, which during Soviet times slowly dried up over a span of decades. Although many enterprises formerly centered on the marine and fishing industry here, today this city stands as a sobering reminder of the Aral Sea tragedy. This graveyard of ships serves as a suitable location for creating atmospheric photos and videos during your tour of Muynak, and through a visit to the Muynak Museum you can support the local economy and get a glimpse of what the area was like during better days.
The unfortunate history of the Aral Sea becomes reality in Karakalpakstan, an autonomous republic in western Uzbekistan that’s home to a plethora of monuments, diverse desert landscapes and the rich cultural heritage of the Karakalpak people. The Aral Sea Tour packs a combination of historical, architectural, natural and cultural stops and is designed for adventurers, historical enthusiasts and fans of exotic photography.
