Aral Sea Tour in Uzbekistan - Private Tour

Tour to the Aral Sea in Uzbekistan, 2022-2023

Aral Sea Tour: 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.

The tour to the Aral Sea does not require being physically prepared. However, you need much of energy to discover the Sea as the distances are quite long. Take your 2 Days adventure tour to the Aral Sea with us!

Aral Sea Tour Duration: 2 days/1 night (~900 km, 16 hours of drive)
Tour date: Flexible
Tour type: Private

Drive to Khodjeyli town. Visit Ancient Complex Mizdakhan. The ancient complex keeps a lot of secrets and even mystical legends and beliefs. There is a small madrasah called sometimes “World Clock”, which served as the burial place of one of the saints. According to the legend every year, this building loses one brick from the masonry, and when the building collapses, the world will come to the end.

Drive to Kungrad district. A short stop at the bazaar. Drive to Muynak. Lunch. Visit Muynak Museum and the "Cemetery of ships" - former Sea port of Muynak. Today tourists arrive in Muynak in great numbers 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.

Shared tours

We organize shared tours for tourists wishing to share the cost with others. If your plans coincide with other fellow co-travelers and are ready to share some room in the car, then this is a convenient and great way to save money and get acquainted with new people!

NEW: We have scheduled ready dates for group bookings up to 11 people. Please see below the schedule. Discounts are applied for large group bookings.

Please note: One off-road car takes up to 4 people, not including the driver. "Available seats" - means the number of seats available per car. 

The cost breakdown of a 2 days/1 night Aral sea shared tour: 

When you (1 person) share with 1 tourist then each tourist pays $305 USD cash. When you (1 person) share with 2 more tourists then each tourist pays $221 USD cash. If there are 4 tourists then each pays $180 USD cash. If your co-traveler/s won't show up (cancel at last moment, get sick, etc;) then we can do a discount on the tour date.

All prices shown above don't include guide fees. Guide services cost an additional $100; you can share the cost of the guide services with up to 2 co-traveler/s (max 4 people per car). There are exceptions: when there are two off-road cars leaving for the tour on the same day and both have hired guides and one of the guides can't make it, the tourists from both off-road cars can share the one guide.

Each Aral Sea tour price includes an off-road car with a professional driver (also includes a rescue car if something happens to the first car), four meals, including snacks, non-alcoholic drinks, and a yurt or guesthouse stay (only optional when the weather is cold; eg. November, December, January and February). Hiring a guide is optional. We also offer meetings with professional guides for $40 who can explain the tour details and answer your questions.

All drivers are professional and fully licensed. They don't speak English but understand a little. That is why it is recommended to hire a tour guide. We aim to hire only professional guides, but occasionally we also have student guides as well for half the price. We recommend booking a guide ahead of time as they get booked up pretty fast.
