Turkmenistan
country of extremes

Turkmenistan

Turkmenistan, undoubtedly the most remarkable country in Central Asia. A land of extremes, of the original and poor inlands to the visible wealth of especially the cities Ashgabat and Turkmenbashi. From the vast and empty deserts and canyons to the Awaza new beach resort on the Caspian Sea.
The proud Turkmens still carry many of their ancient tribal traditions and characteristics, more than in Uzbekistan, Kyrgystan and Kazakhstan.

But first of all Turkmenistan has its archaeological sites to offer. In addition to the attractions Merv and Nisa also the treasures of Margush show an enormous historic wealth.
Interest in the bizarre and closedness, in the archaeological sites and in the traditional peoples would be a good reason to visit the country.

Turkmenistan is still a relatively closed country, little known to travelers. It is safe and interesting, well served by airlines like Turkish Airlines and Lufthansa, and we predict it a beautiful touristic future.

 

To visit Turkmenistan you need to have a visa, and to obtain the visa, you must have an invitation letter (LOI ). The LOI we will arrange for you when you book a program, the visa you can obtain upon arrival in the country or at the Turkmen embassy in case your country of residence holds one.

Finally, Turkmenistan has its economy and currency not yet liberalized, which means that ATMs and CC are of limited use. One should take USD cash with hom or her during a visit .

You will find in these pages a diverse range of travel programs in the country, which can be adapted to your needs. Combinations with the Central Asian neighbors and Iran are possible and we gladly inform you of the possibilities.
