Fleewinter really made our trip memorable. It was so easy and they choose the right traditional hotels and tours and cities to experience, the trip just opened our eyes to a completely different culture.
The Karakum Desert, ancient Silk Road cities and the chance to stay in a yurt and meet semi-nomadic people, Turkmenistan promises adventure. Until recently, this was the last frontier and the outpost of the old Soviet Empire.
Turkmenistan is home to around 4.5 million people, many who trace their descent from nomadic tribes from the Altai Mountains above Mongolia in the 5th Century AD. The chance to meet the local people and see the traditional Turkomen dress will be one of life’s memorable moments, think huge sheepskin hats, long coats and sturdy boots ready to boost them onto their horses.
Rich from gas and oil money, Turkmenistan’s capital Ashgabat is home to gilded marble palaces, gold statues and grand squares and boulevards. In contrast, you can venture into the Karakum Desert or visit the Darvaza Gas Crater, spewing flames from its post-apocalyptic landscape.Whether you are looking for a cultural tour to discover this interesting country or a 4WD jeep safari to see the Darvaza crater in the Karakum Desert, here at Fleewinter we can plan your perfect tailor made tour.
