Guided Tours

A day trip to Lake Tengiz, requiring a 4WD vehicle, costs around 15,000T for around four people plus 5000T for an official reserve guide; a car day trip to Lake Birtaban, 11km from the village, is only around 6000T.


The village has several simple but clean guesthouses whose owners will organise trips into the reserve and to other nearer, also bird-rich, lakes outside the reserve.


Homestays offer full board. There are no restaurants.
