Turkmenistan

Somewhat isolated and idiosyncratic, Turkmenistan intrigues!

From the grand and lavish palaces, gold statues and marble monuments in the over-manicured capital of Ashgabet to the mysticism that hangs over pilgrimage sites and ancient ruins - this is most certainly a uniquely Turkmen experience!

For the politically-curious, Turkmenistan, best known for the eccentricities of its late dictator Saparmurat Niyazov whose personality cult is omnipresent (the legend prevails although the process of dismantling is on-going with the new leadership), presents an opportunity to take a peek into one of world’s few totalitarian rules. History buffs will enjoy the ancient cities like Merv, and Konye-Urgench while nature-lovers will appreciate the haunting beauty of the Karakum Desert (Black Sand) and the occasional quirks of coloured canyons, dinosaur footprints and burning gas craters.
