  • Ayaz-kala yurt camp is located near the ruins of Ayaz-Kala fortress (4-2nd centuries BC). As it is commonly known, yurt is a traditional transportable housing of the Central Asian nomads who could assemble and disassemble it at any place to spend the night. Some of these yurts with a capacity of 2 (5-rope yurts) up to 20 people (15-rope yurt) are located in a very picturesque place. The camp is located in the wild steppes, but is easily accessible by vehicle from Khiva and Urgench via Biruni and Buston. Ayaz Kala is about 70 km from Urgench on a bitumen road. The last 2 km are on a sand road to the Ayaz Kala Yurt Camp. There are numerous foot paths between the sites. It is about 32 km from Ayaz Kala to Toprak Kala. 

    Distance to the Ayazkala Yurt Camp:
        From Khiva - 100 km
        From Urgench - 70 km
        From Bukhara - 450 km
        From Nukus - 150 km

    It is possible to accommodate from 20 to 25 guests in every yurt. There are 2 shower houses, 2 restrooms, and a kitchen with 3 fireplaces. You can taste there meals of Karakalpak, Kazakh, and Uzbek cuisine. Also there are a variety of salads and light snacks.

    It will be pleasure for you to lie on topchans and enjoy the most beautiful sunsets and stars on warm evenings.

    The interior furnishing of residential yurts consists of thick cotton mattress and blankets used both as beds and seats, there are also copper jugs with water for washing and a stove. There are 2 shower rooms and 2 restrooms not far from the guest yurts. A separate yurt is used as a dining room where guests gather for a meal, and a separate kitchen is arranged with three pockets. There are three couches at the territory of the camp: one is with a canopy and two without it. Tourists can use them to relax and enjoy the warm evenings, the sunset and the stars. In the evenings, musicians from the local village organize concerts for tourists, who are enchanted by the melodies of the Uzbek, Karakalpak, Kazakh, Turkmen and Russian peoples.

    There is the great opportunity to take an interesting camel ride, to visit the ancient ruins of the Ayaz-Kala fortresses, to boat on Ayazkul Lake, and to enjoy an exotic folklore concert of musicians from the neighboring village.

    The yurts are beautifully decorated and very comfortable, although the camp as a whole looks somewhat bleak - but then it is in the desert!

    Before I share my viewpoint, it's only fair to say that since I've been to Mongolia I couldn't help but to compare it with Mongolian nomadic camp. Compare to the size of Mongolian ger camps in...

    We drove miles until we arrived at these yurts. There was not a dwelling in sight for as far as one could see. A little ways, up on a hill, was an ancient fort to add "local color." When we...

    Safari yurt camp
    trip advisor rating
    Safari yurt camp is located 60 km from Nurata and consists of 20 yurts. The location leaves much to be desired. There’s not much to see out here except nondescript desert and a reservoir. The camp exists purely for the camel rides.

    trip advisor rating
    Aidar yurt camp is another must for those travelling to Uzbekistan. A small camp of 10 yurts set 15-20 min ride from Aydarkul lake. Good location, decent facilities, tasty food, camel rides, national music performance, desert views, night sky and much more. Truly unforgettable experience
