ABOUT ME

Hi, friends!

My name is Cholpon. I grew up in a small town of Naryn in the south-eastern part of Kyrgyzstan. From the early ages my passion was to travel and discover new places. I enjoyed showing around to my friends and teachers who came from abroad to teach English. Further I entered the University to study linguistics but to connect my life with tourism it was not enough. Therefore I went through special courses of guiding by local mentors in Bishkek who run tourist agencies. This is how I got involved into this world of adventures and new experiences.

Miracle Insight of Turkmenistan

Miracle Insight of Turkmenistan

Tour 2: Miracle Insight of Turkmenistan
Duration: 7 days
In short: Ashgabat – Mary − Merv − Kowata – Nokhur village − Darwaza − Ashgabat  

Day 1: Ashgabat
Guide will meet at the international airport and transfer you to the hotel for check-in. Then you can go for a walk to see the night view of marble Ashgabat city. Night is in the hotel. 

Day 2: Ashgabat – Mary/Merv
In the morning you will be transferred to the Mary province to visit the epic Merv. This place is under protection as UNESCO World Heritage Site. It is considered to be one of the main archaeological sites of Central Asia. Merv had played major role in the development of the Silk Road for more than 2 000 years. The sumptuous Mausoleums of the Sultan Sanjar and Muhammad Ibn Zayd of XII century, show exquisite Seljuk brickwork and architectural decoration. Visit National History and Ethnology Museum after lunch.

Day 3: Mary – Ashgabat
In the morning driving back to Ashgabat city. On the road to it you will have stop for visiting ancient Nedir Kala. This fortress was built in the 18th century and the order to built it gave Nadir-Shah. After having lunch in the city you will drive to “Old Nisa”. Nisa was the capital of Parthian Empire which lasted 600 years and was the greatest enemy of Rome Empire. Now the Sanctuary of Parthian Kings is UNESCO site. Your next destination is wonderful Ertugrul Mosque. It is considered to be one of the most beautiful Muslim mosques of Turkmenistan.  Like all buildings built in Ashgabat during the period of independence, the mosque impresses with its size and rich decoration. The largest mosque in Ashgabat that can simultaneously accommodate up to 5000 people is Azadi Mosque. The turkish style was used in the construction and this mosque was named after Ozuzhan Ertogrul - Osman I, the father of the first ruler of the Osman Empire.

Day 4: Ashgabat – Kow Ata – Nokhur village – Ashgabat
Morning transfer to the Gokdepe village for seeing the Ahalteke horses. Here you will see how to ride and race on Ahalteke horse. Also you will have opportunity to ride it. After it you will visit Kow Ata. It is near Ashgabat, 60 km to the west, is the famous Baharden Cave located with the equally famous underground lake Kou-Ata inside. Meaning of this name is "father of the caves". Its popularity is associated more with the healing properties of water than with the beauty of this underground nature. The son released all the animals and birds there and planted the seeds that were stored in the Ark. There you can watch Khur Khuri waterfall, headed from several small mountain springs, escaping from a height of 53 m. 

Day 5: Ashgabat – Darwaza
After breakfast you will visit carpet museum. This carpet museum has more than 2000 ancient carpets, including a stunning wine-colored carpet with an area of more than 300 m² - an impressive size, that’s how it fell into the Guinness Book of Records. Then you will see the main attraction of the tour – Gas Crater “Darwaza”. Driving in daytime won’t really impress you and seem a hole in the ground. But when you come here in the evening this sight will impress you with its stunning beauty, while seeing thousands of fire pieces burning in the 20-meter crater. The gas exiting the hole ignites, making the hot air hotter. All tours to the Darwaza Crater are organized in the evening, so you can enjoy a breathtaking view of the sunset, which slowly reveals the brightly blazing flames of the crater. Around the crater there are few others, one of which is filled with turquoise liquid.

Day 6: Darwaza – Ashgabat
Going back to Ashgabat after having picnic-breakfast. You will be in the city at the lunch time. You will have rest time after taking a shower in the hotel and putting your stuff. Then we are going to visit the memorial complex that was opened in 2014.
