Traditional central Asian yurt stay near the mud-walled Ayaz Kala ruins on the edge of the Kyzyl-Kum Desert

Sleeping in a snug yurt belly beneath the clear starry skies of Kyzyl-Kum Desert, your mind will easily drift to the mud-walled Ayaz Kala ruins along the horizon and dream of things past; of ancient hilltop fortresses, temples and observatories, the successive civilizations that sprung up and made their cultural mark, and of Genghis Khan’s marauding troops - the first in a long line of conquerors and tyrants. Ayaz Kala’s grand sweep of landscape seeped through with caravanserai history makes a stay here, in camel-hair hut and epic land laid out from doorstop to horizon, time travel without flux-capacitor or fiction.
