Khiva & Nukus-oasis in the Kyzyl Kum desert!

Tour code: 012-0006

Kyzyl Kum desert is the biggest deserted area in Central Asia. It covers almost the half of Uzbek territory. Kyzyl Kum desert was home for nomadic tribes for many centuries. Even in our days you can see people leaving in the depth of Kyzyl Kum desert continuing their nomadic lifestyle far from civilization.
Ellik Qala region located in the western part of Kyzyl Kum desert once was the flourishing green valley. The name “Ellik Qala” –“Fifty Castles/fortresses” in Uzbek language gives its origin from number of castles and fortresses built there by Khorezmian rules. When Amu Darya River changed its direction, people left their houses and green valley covered with sand.
Castles and fortresses of Ellik Qala are still living on and attracting many history-lovers from far parts of the world.
