Tour description:

A different tour with a longer itinerary - the tour will take 3 full days and 2 nights.

The trip will include all the main attractions of the Aral Sea and its area and on top of that - BBQ party on the sea coast and stars seeing outside of dusty cities.  

Day # 1
Nukus - Aral Sea
08:00 Departure from Nukus to the Aral Sea via SUV vehicles early in the morning. During the road, we will quickly observe Khojeli & Kungrad districts which once were checkpoints of the Great Silk Roadway. Also, we will see a few soda and salt plants supported by foreign countries. The tastiest salt in Uzbekistan is being mined here. 
Transfer to the Sudochie Lake. The name of it is taken from the Russian language - a modest tasty fish called 'Sudak' was bred there. During the last years, several flocks of red & pink flamingos keep flying over there to take a rest from Winter. 
On Sudochie Lake you can purchase some fish to cook on the BBQ party later and have a talk with fishermen. Disturbing the pink flamingos especially April-June times is strictly prohibited. 
Continue the way to the Aral Sea coast. There you will see the ruins of Stalin's repression victims' settlement. Also, there is an abandoned graveyard with rickety crosses symbolizing the graves of old-believers people. 
Arriving at the Aral Sea. Accommodation in a yurt camp. 
Lunch.
Overnight.

Day # 2
Aral Sea - Nomad's territory
06:00 Breakfast in the yurt camp. A little time for taking pictures of the sunrise.

Day 3
Aral Sea-Muynak-Nukus
08:00 Breakfast in the yurt camp.
