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 Karakalpaks. Of particular interest to many travelers is the forlorn remains of the Aral Sea port city Muynak, the soft beauty of the Ustyurt Plateau and the distinct Karakalpak language and culture.
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. A qualified guide and driver will accompany you on both days, informing you of the rich story of this region, its natural peculiarities and the tragedy of the Aral Sea.
*In case of inclement weather, the yurt camp overnight stay will be replaced with lodging in a guesthouse of equivalent value.
Subject to flight availability, this two-day tour can also be arranged to and from Tashkent.
