Kyzylkum Desert

Situated between the Amudarya and Syrdarya rivers in Central Asia, the Kyzylkum Desert is the 15th largest desert in the world. Kyzylkum, meaning Red Sand, features rolling dunes of red sand as well as other lighter shades. This vast desert stretches over Uzbekistan, with a small portion of it crossing over into Kazakhstan. It covers 300 thousand square kilometres and boasts diverse fauna and flora which comes to life in spring when lucky visitors can spot wild tulips and poppies blooming to life. Visitors can look forward to trekking adventures, bicycle and horse routes across the mountains of Nuratau, Aktau and Karatau, camel rides and overnight trips at a collection yurt camps dotting the Kyzylkum Desert.
