Cheap Darvaza Tour, 3 days

Cheap Darvaza (Door to hell) tour takes you over the border from Khiva, first to Kunya-Urgench, the site of an amazing architectural reserve and the former capital of the Khorezm Empire, and then travel to the Darvaza Gas Crater(Gates of Hell), a natural gas burn off in the Karakum Desert.

If you drive up the gas crater during the daytime, it will not impress much and seem a hole in the ground, but when you come closer you will see thousands of fire pieces burning in the 20-meter crater. Gas comes out of the hole and inflames more making the hot air even hotter. 

Darvaza (Door to Hell)  tours are organized for the evening time, so you will enjoy a fascinating view of the sunset that slowly opens up vividly burning flames of the crater. There are few other holes around the crater, one of them is filled with turquoise liquid. These holes are recommended to watch in the daytime and cautiously as they crumble on the edges and one can feel the high temperature as well as the smell of the natural gas. Share a night in the desert and a meal cooked over a fire with new friends as you travel with like-minded people from around the world
