Only few have ever heard about Turkmenistan, and even less had a chance to visit this country. It is the least visited and most difficult to get in country in the Central Asia, yet those lucky who will visit it will be amazed by how much it can offer to a curious traveler. 
The least-visited country in Central Asia consisting mostly of desert, is not, perhaps, instantly alluring. Yet this is a remarkable place to visit. This is ancient land of great spirituality, tradition and natural beauty. 
The ancient cities of Merv, Misrian and Konye-Urgench inspire visions of slow-moving caravans plodding along the ancient Silk Road, while the haunting beauty of the Karakum desert and other quirky natural phenomena, from vast coloured canyons and dinosaur footprints to burning gas craters, are less expected but equally mesmerising sights. The capital city was totally transformed in the recent years and is worth a visit as it presents a blend of Dubai & Vegas with outstanding central asian authentity.
