Accommodation in Turkmenistan
Although Turkmenistan was considered a closed country for many years, the country’s government has made significant efforts to develop the hotel sector of the economy. Comfortable luxury 5-star world-class hotels were built in Ashgabat and other large cities of the country.
On the other hand, relatively inexpensive hotels that were opened during the Soviet Union still operate in Turkmenistan. In terms of comfort, such hotels are inferior to modern ones, but they provide the opportunity to feel the atmosphere of post-Soviet Central Asia.
A significant part of hotels in Turkmenistan are not listed on popular booking services like Hotels.com and Booking.com, so they must be booked directly or through a travel agency like our Ayan Travel company.
During our excursion tours, we offer overnight camping in the Karakum Desert and in the mountains. Particularly popular are campsites near the flaming crater Darvaza (“Door to Hell”) and in the Yangikala canyon.
While exploring the desert, it’s important to be aware of potential hazards such as spiders, scorpions, and snakes. However, it’s worth noting that these creatures typically shy away from human interaction. As of now, there haven’t been reports of hikers being stung or bitten, indicating a relatively low risk. Nonetheless, exercising caution and staying informed about your surroundings is advisable to ensure a safe and enjoyable desert experience.
Another interesting accommodation option in Turkmenistan is homestay. It allows you to get to know the culture and way of life of local residents as closely as possible, enjoy village food and the atmosphere of true Turkmen hospitality. Our excursion tours have the option of staying with a family in the mountain village of Nokhur.
