yurts campsHi guys, do you have any info about sleeping in a yurt camp around urgench or Khiva?
Im looking for something less touristic as possible. (small yurt camp and without a bus trip with 30 other tourists).
My idea was to take a taxi (we are 4) and visit the old ruined fortress around and finish the day sleeping in a yurt near the fortress, anyone has done this? do you recomend me this or any other way to visit fortress and yurts?
Thank you in advance.

2Yes have done this a couple of times. Book through the tourist information centre in the old city in Khiva. Fab experience. Rmrmber to take vodka with you :-) laying out watching the stars is amazong as you areso far away from the nearest town so no ambient lights. Bloody freezing in the desert so make sur you are prepared for subzero temperatures. The yurt is not heated. Go for it. Enjoy the great experience.
