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.

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.

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