As soon as you set your eyes on the brilliant flame-colored canyons of Yangykala, you’ll realize why this deep valley region is considered to be one of the most spectacular sights – not just in Turkmenistan – but the whole of Central Asia. This mini-three day excursion will take you from the white-marble capital of Ashgabat overland via 4X4, stopping off at treasured shrines and mosques, before reaching the stunning Yangykala Canyons on the second day. Along the way, you’ll bed down under the stars in tents, as well as experience a full tour of the valleys, which boast stunning pink, orange, red and yellow shades and cut deep into the Turkmenistan landscape. Make your way back on the third day and spend your final night in the capital of Ashgabat.
This excursion to the Yangykala Canyons must be conducted in conjunction with longer itineraries to Turkemenistan.
