  • About an hour drive from Ashgabat. Has a restaurant next to it (we haven't used it) with shashlyks. Pretty steep stairs and a pool that we were not willing to jump to. And a loooot of pigeons.

  • This place is good to visit if you like caves and springs, but not good idea if you have problems with climbing or long walks. As for me, one more hour at horse stables is quite better than drive here just for steps count while going down to underground water pool.
  • This lake is the place of my childhood in 1983 and 84 (one of the first memories) and my dream is to go there again. And this dream came true in 2012 and 2013. And I hope to go there again with my children, show them my favorite stone😊 This is the memory of my parents when they swam into the grottoes. Dad was born there, he knew all the loopholes there😊. This is a memory of my grandfather, who put the first lighting there😊
