Coordinates : 44.8884339913059, 59.4762001267344 (Open in Google Maps)

Subjects : In the surroundings of what remains of the Aral Sea you can find excellent photographic ideas: salt deserts, deserts of poor, silted up ships about 200 km away from the water, the Ustyurt plateau with huge fractures and cones of sedimentary rocks, salt lakes, lagoons with islands of floating reeds, in short, there is really a lot to visit / photograph.

Recommended equipment : Wide angle, medium canvas, super canvases, quality tripod (the water of the lake is saturated with salt, the very fine dust blocks the segments of the tripods)

Best months : I was in August, the temperatures were close to 50 degrees during the day, at night it was zero. The recommended period for visiting the Aral Sea and the Ustyurt plateau is May.

How to get there : Departures from Rome or Milan to Tashkent, the capital of Uzbekistan. The quickest flight from Tashkent airport to get near the Aral Sea is to Nukus, about 1h 20min. Then there are three days of off-road in the dry bed of the lake and on the Ustyurt plateau.

Visits : The place is immense, we "stayed" in a camp of yurts, electricity for two or three hours a day, no running water no toilets, from there you can visit the seabed, now dry, of the Aral Sea. There are caves and incredible cones of colorful sandstone. Within a radius of 300 km we find other interesting places: The Thousand Islands (Ozero Tysiachi Ostrovov), fantastic dry salt lakes, tiny villages in the middle of the scorching Russian steppe.

Notes : Travel not very comfortable, but all in all it remains "Easy".
