Cross the land border at Dashoguz or Konye Urgench

1 days


All our group tours start and end in Ashgabat, however you might be planning to travel in Uzbekistan either before or after visiting Turkmenistan, and be looking to cross the land border either before or after the tour.

This extension is for those who are coming from Nukus or Khiva, so will be crossing at either Dashoguz/Shavat, or at Nukus/Konye Urgench.

You'll be picked up at the border, taken to Konye Urgench historical site for a brief visit, then after a bite to eat, will be taken to the airport in Dashoguz, where you'll catch the evening flight to Ashgabat.
