A 3-Day cultural, adventure and active tour to Aral Sea, located at the boundary of Uzbekistan and Kazakhstan. As far back as half a century it was a closed salt-water lake, so huge that could not be called otherwise but a sea. The Aral Sea was home to 34 fish species, and its waters were furrowed by ships and fishing flotillas. Its seashore was interspersed with fishing communities, a dozen of fish factories, two fish canning plants and about a hundred of fish pick-up points. Nearly 60,000 tons of fish were harvested annually in the Aral Sea. The region’s life was going swimmingly, the country was flourishing … The local community still remembers these times, but the place where ships were furrowing, now became a desert, covered with alkali soils and dried sea weeds, abandoned piscatorial settlements, rusting skeletons of abandoned ships. The Aral Sea tour leaves a mixed feeling of admiration with breathtaking views of “Martian” landscapes of the Aral Desert and Ustyurt Plateau, and that of sadness felt looking at the opened wounds of this land.
