Opportunity to travel to ‘The Door of Hell’ (Darvaza Gas Crater), Konye-Urgench and Dashoguz
In 1971, scientists lit the Darvaza Gas Crater on fire as a means of controlling the spread of methane. More than 47 years later, it’s still burning. You’ll have the opportunity to visit Darvaza and to spend a night camping beside it! We’ll take you all the way up to Konye-Urgench, the ancient capital of the wealthy Persian Khorezm empire and Dashoguz, at the Northern Turkmen border with Uzbekistan.

The pre-trip tours are inclusive of:

  • Guides and translators
  • Group transport throughout your stay
  • Three meals per day as well as snacks periodically
  • Accommodation – basic room based on double occupancy
  • Entrance fees to all excursions
  • Donation to support sports programs for athletes with intellectual disabilities in the DPRK
