People who lived more than two thousand years ago in the vicinity of the AmuDarya Delta had to build fortresses to protect against invasions of nomadic tribes who lived with their families in the Kyzylkum desert. These fortresses have become historical sites with extraordinary ancient views. Most of the fortresses are located on the edge of the Sultanuizdag mountain range. As part of this day trip, you will be able to explore the ancient desert capitals of Khorezm and learn the most interesting legends about them.
