For those who love a little ancient history, a trip to Aydarkul and Sarmishsay is just about the best Uzbekistan tour possible. Sarmishsay has a unique petroglyph gallery, with over 10,000 stone carvings depicting scenes from daily life of the people who lived here long ago. Then head out to Aydarkul for a taste of nomadic life, with camel riding and a night in a yurt in the Kyzylkum Desert. Aydarkul Lake and Sarmishsay are conveniently located between Bukhara and Samarkand, so if you have some extra time, add on a city tour extension.
Though meals are included, based on the experience and tips of our guests, we advise to take some food in advance, as there are no shops around yurts.
- Accommodation in the yurt camp hotel with full board (3 meals);
- Economy-class tickets for Tashkent-Navoi and Samarkand-Tashkent trains (on rare occasions when the high-speed train is unavailable, we will replace this with the most-comfortable class of regular train);
- Transportation throughout the tour, including airport/train station pick ups and drop offs.
- Tips are not included, but would be appreciated;
- Travel insurance.
