Day 2: Ashgabat - Kow Ata - Nokhur
This tour will start by travelling to the Kow Ata underground lake or Bakharden cave. The lake name is translated as "father of the caves". Its popularity is associated rather with the remedial properties of water, than the prettiness of this underground nature. We will drive to Kopet Dag range. See region settled by mountain tribes of Nokhur that have for centuries preserved their unique culture, traditional crafts and architecture. Night is in a homestay.

Day 3: Nokhur - Ashgabat - Kerki
In the morning we will drive back to Ashgabat and visit the memorial complex involving of three memorials dedicated to those who died in the 1948 earthquake, militias who lost their lives in WWII and those murdered in other Turkmen battles. The Earthquake Memorial landscapes a bronze version of a bull and child. Then we will drive to the Russian Market. It was erected in the period of 1972-1982 by the design of the Russian architect Vladimir Visotin amid other buildings that were involved in the "Ashgabat Reconstruction Program of 1970-1980." The building was done in the Soviet Modernism style and adorned by the Turkmen sculptor Klych Yarmamedov who venerated the building with a splendid intangible sculpture placed in one of the building's corners. Afterwards we will drive to the train station to go to the Kerki town. Night is on the train.

Day 4: Kerki - Koytendag
On arrival to the Kerki we will drive to the Koytendag mountain. Kugitangtau mounatains are called Koytendag and located in the very east of Turkmenistan. Their name is translated from Turkmen as "mountains of deep canyons". This edge is expurgated by many deep canyons with steep cliffs, which make the sky sometimes seen only in a form of narrow strip over the head. See the deepest lakes, the lengthiest caves and even the Dinosaur Plateau bearing traces of these prehistoric reptiles. It is this mountain system where the highest point of Turkmenistan - Mount Ayrybaba (3,139 m) is situated. In addition, Koytendag Mountains are home to the country's deepest lake - Kattakol.
