Welcome to Northern Turkmenistan

Attractions in this part of the country are scarce, but those with an interest in history must visit Konye-Urgench, which is rich in Islamic relics dating back to the 11th, 12th and 13th centuries.

Sadly the region has not escaped the Aral Sea disaster and suffers from air, soil and water pollution. It’s also the poorest part of the country, with little commerce apart from the smuggling of subsidised petrol to Uzbekistan.
