Adventure Tour to Uzbekistan - Private Tour

Adventure tour to Uzbekistan, 2020-2021

Adventure Tour to Uzbekistan: Explore ancient cities of Uzbekistan and magnificent landscapes of the Ustyurt Plateau and the Aral Sea. The Aral Sea was once the fourth-largest lake in the world. For thousands of years, people have lived in the Aral Sea basin, which served as an oasis on the Silk Road, the trading route that linked China to Europe. However, since the 1960s it has been shrinking due to environmental changes caused by humans.

Visit Muynak to see the cemetery of ships – corroded iron bulks amid the Aralkum desert, a new desert that has formed on the bottom of the former Aral Sea. The Aral Sea was once the fourth-largest lake in the world. Visit Savitsky Art Museum, called sometimes Louvre of the East. Opened in 1966, the museum houses a collection of over 82 000 items, ranging from antiquities from Khorezm to Karakalpak folk art, Uzbek fine art and, uniquely, the second largest collection of Russian avant-garde in the world (after the Russian Museum in St. Petersburg).

Watch the process of producing ceramics in Gijduvan. Explore the ancient sights of Nurata city. Discover Kyzilkum desert. Stay in the Yurt camp, ride on the camels, hike in the Chimgan mountains. Take your adventure tour to Uzbekistan with us!
