Nurata is a small town in the highland area of Navoi region of Uzbekistan with a population of 25 thousand people. Therefore there are no big hotels as in big cities, but here you will find so-called guest houses, offering tourists home-like accommodation in Uzbek families. In addition, tourists, admiring nature, can stay in real yurt camps. Yurts are traditional houses of nomadic people, who had been living here for centuries. Moving across a vast desert, nomadic shepherds and their families carried with them these folding dome tent-houses, which protected them in the heat and cold. Today tourists can estimate the usability of these exotic “houses” in the wilderness, which has never been conquered by a man.
A small and picturesque yurt camp is situated on the southern shore of the Lake Aydarkul.
