What to See in Turkmenistan

Share/Bookmark

Turkmenistan is a Central Asian nation roughly the size of California. It shares borders with Kazakhstan, Uzbekistan, Afghanistan, and Iran. Primarily a desert country has a population of around six million people. Turkmenistan is located in an active seismic zone. Earth tremors can occur and there is a possibility of earthquakes. Officially tourism is welcomed, but onerous visa requirements discourage all but the most determined visitors. All visa applications made at Turkmen Embassies overseas are referred to Ashgabat for a decision. This can take 20 days or more. There is an accelerated 24 hours service, but a supplementary fee of approximately US$150 will be charged.
